Selebtek.suara.com – Singer Rieka Roelan strictly forbade The Groove to sing her songs.
He had sent an official letter to The Groove and Wahana Musik Indonesia (WAMI) on December 13, 2022, before the excitement in the Ahmad Dhani case with Once.
“On December 13, 2022 I sent an official letter to The Groove and WAMI stating that I had banned The Groove from performing my songs,” said Rieka Roslan in a trembling voice quoted from the video uploaded by the TikTok account @trustnoone, Saturday (22/ 4/2023).
“Before Mas Dhani’s case was revealed, yes,” he continued.

According to Rieka Roeslan, the ban was a consequence because he had been kicked out of the band he co-founded.
“This is a logical consequence when The Groove can no longer be on stage with me, as founder and songwriter. I also forbade my band from performing my songs,” said Rieka.

Rieka admitted that she had made efforts and had discussions several times asking management to switch to becoming an agency so The Groove could take charge of its own management, but to no avail.
His proposal to change management was rejected which led to his expulsion from The Groove.
“I received a letter from EO that The Groove could no longer be on stage with me,” said Rieka.

From that discomfort, Rieka Roslan finally took a firm stance on the songs she created that The Groove sang.
