Legendary music director Ilayaraja sent legal notice to SP Balasubramanyam warning him not to sing his songs at public events without his consent. Similar notices were received by other singers as well. SPB is on USA tour. He will be performing for SPB50 Concert. Singers Chitra and SPB Charan will also be performing. Ilayaraja asked Balu not to perform his compositions at the events without his permissions. The maestro of music warned to take legal action if his notice is breached.
SPB opened up on the issue. “I had sung Ilayaraja’s compositions in several shows, but he never objected. But suddently he issued notice when I am about to start my US tour. Anyways, I abide by law and will not perform his songs. I will be performing other musicians songs as usual. I hope music lovers would cooperate. I also appeal public not to take sides and start debates on this issue,” said the veteran singer.
