Real or Fake / Korn writer

Fri, Nov 18, 2011 at 11:50 PM

Hey Korn Fans,

I happened upon a picture of an award that seemed fake to me. The award read:

Presented by the
National Music Publishers' Association
to
Jovan J. Dawkins
Songwriter of the RIAA Certified
Platinum Single
"Let the Guilt Go"
Recorded by
Korn


1. Who is Jovan J. Dawkins?
2. I have this song downloaded from iTunes... Why would he not be listed as a writer?
3. I can not find "Let the Guilt Go" listed anywhere as a platinum single. Is it?


A little more information: A friend of mine is an artist who says that Jovan Dawkins is producing his next album. I looked him up online. That is how I found this picture. However, other than this picture... I cannot confirm that this person is even a real producer... much less who he says he is. I can confirm that Jovan is a sessions drummer... but that is not the same thing... at all.

Please Help

    I am not citing a source, however K3 did not go Gold (500,000 copies) so, I don't see how that single would have sold 1 million copies. When KoRn has let other people write in the past (The Matrix and others), they credited them. I don't think KoRn would put up a front.

    I can tell you with confidence that "Let the Guilt Go" was not certified Platinum. That's impossible since Korn don't even have one Gold single in the US.

    Is this my overture,
    or obituary?

    Thanks everyone for your help with this!

    Please, keep the info coming. It would really help me... in order to help my friend who may be being swindled.

    Also, please, if you find any contact information for this 'Jovan'... DO NOT contact him abou this... If this person is a con artist, he might try to 'close' some sort of deal with my friend if he feel like he is close to being caught. (The only understandable exception to this request would be if an official representative of the band (Korn) would have legal reason to do so.)

    Here is a link to his FB page that has a close-up of the 'award'
    http://www.facebook.com/people/Jovan-Dawkins/1727991626
    Other pics on his profile (which you may not be able to see w/o having mutual fb friends with him) show the entire award; which has a few other aesthetic differences from NMPA awards of the same time period.
