In a recent, emotional online broadcast, music producer Dr. Roy publicly accused gospel singer Mercy Chinwo of allegedly failing to compensate him for producing several of her most successful tracks, including the wildly popular “Excess Love.”

Tearfully recounting his efforts and the lack of financial remuneration, Dr. Roy expressed his profound disappointment.

According to Dr. Roy, despite the songs accumulating millions of views on YouTube and significant streaming numbers across various platforms, he has not received any royalties. “I produced all Mercy Chinwo’s hit songs, worked day and night, but till today I’ve never got my royalties,” he lamented during the broadcast. His situation was made even more dire by personal tragedy.

“My father was sick and dying, and I called Mercy to assist me, and all she did was offer me words of encouragement,” Dr. Roy disclosed, visibly upset by the lack of support during his family’s crisis.

The producer’s plight has sparked a conversation about the importance of formal agreements in creative collaborations. Viewers of Dr. Roy’s broadcast and followers of both his and Chinwo’s careers have echoed sentiments that no matter the level of trust or personal relationship between collaborators, legal agreements are crucial. “No matter how nice they sound, please sign an agreement. Humans can be tough,” one comment advised, highlighting the harsh reality of business dealings in the music industry.

Dr. Roy’s emotional testimony serves as a stark reminder of the potential pitfalls artists and producers can face in the industry, stressing the importance of ensuring all collaborative efforts are backed by formal contracts to secure fair compensation and acknowledgment. As of now, Mercy Chinwo has not publicly responded to Dr. Roy’s claims. The music community and fans await her side of the story as this controversy continues to unfold.
