Unsatisfied with the proposed conditions, Viktor turned them down.
"It's an ethical issue, because what the whole film purports is that it's about black empowerment, African excellence-that's the whole concept of the story", Robinson toldthe New York Times. "And at the same timethey're stealing from African artists".
The visually striking music video is co-directed by Dave Meyers, alongside Kendrick Lamar and Dave Free (the creative duo known as "the little homies").
Viktor and her lawyer claim that the video copied the style of her Constellations series. He later adds, "Never seen a stop singe or a stop light / I wanna see what living on the top like / You wanna see what living on the top like".
But she was stunned to find that they had duplicated her work anyway. A story in Okay Africa about the video noted: "The work and influence of British-Liberian artist Lina Iris Viktor can be clearly spotted". Viktor was prepared to consider participating, but ultimately found the financial and artistic terms unacceptable, which ended further discussions. After listening to Black Panther soundtrack, there is no doubt that the K dot produced album has come straight from his top drawer.
"We were not interested in giving exclusivity for promotion of a campaign", Ibrahim said in an interview. Black Panther: The Album is set for release Friday (Feb. 9). The buzz began mounting after the surprise announcement was accompanied by the first track, "All The Stars" by Kendrick Lamar and SZA. Viktor said to the Times.
"And at the same timethey're stealing from African artists".
