Another similarity in stage name has been a problem for a music icon that has gone more popular over the other. Rapper Soulja Boy is sued by a relatively unknown man who claimed that he had used the name 'Souljah Boy' first.

Soulja Boy whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, is facing possible legal matter that was issued by a rapper named Willie Lyons. The legal representative of Lyons issued a letter to gossip blogger Perez Hilton saying that the alias has been used by his client for more than 12 years.

The letter read: "I am writing on behalf of the law firm of Alexander, Odunze & Kang LLP to give you a heads up re: the attached complaint, which was filed in federal court this afternoon on behalf of Willie Lyons p/k/a Souljah Boy. By way of background (and as you may already know), Mr. Lyons, known in commerce as Souljah Boy for over twelve years, is suing artist Soulja Boy (birth name: DeAndre Way), his record label, attorney & manager in connection with his blatant infringement of Mr. Lyons' trademark."

No respond yet from Soulja Boy's camp. On better side, the 'Crank That' crooner was scheduled to shoot a music video for his third single 'Yahhh!' feat. Arab with Dale "Rage" Resteghini as the director.
