Mika Launching Countersuit Against Another Mika


Mika


Mika who is famous for his single 'Grace Kelly' is getting a retaliation against a reggae singer who sued him for similarity in stage name.

The Sun reported that Mika is taking a counter attack against a Belgian songstress, also named Mika, who filed a lawsuit against him last year over similarity of their names. The "Lollipop" singer and his record label, Universal Music are suing the lesser known Mika who claimed that she registered the stage name in 1980s.

The famous Mika is seeking a 20,000 pound sterling damage in compensation of her filing a "provocative and reckless lawsuit". No further details have been unveiled other than the whispers that the Belgian Mika who lost in the first battle, has announced that she plans to file a counterclaim at a civil court in Brussels.

Mika, a Lebanese native who was born Mica Penniman was forced to flee to Paris before settling in London and releasing his debut album "Life in Cartoon Motion" (2007). The CD was eventually a worldwide success and was sold more than 3 million copies.

The lesser-known Mika is a reggae singer who has released five albums in her native country. In September last year she filed a lawsuit, reasoning: "I was called Mika before him and have registered the name. Even though his real name is Mica, I think he should change it."
