Songwriting has been a challenge to many singers. Most singers have been struggling with the art of songwriting. A lot of accusations have been laid to singers especially when it comes to having copyrights of songs.
We’ve heard singers facing the common problem. Some have also been charged in a court suit for using lyrics belonging to another singer. In Kenya, the list of singers stealing other songs from others isn’t something new.
A hip-hop crew called Effect Gang has come out to shame rapper Kristoff, Yvonne Darq and Kush Tracey for sampling their beat and passing it off as their own original production.
Effect Gang members took to Twitter to expose them saying:
“I HEAR THERE IS A CERTAIN ARTISTE WHO HAS STOLEN OUR SONG. MAN, AND THE WAY WE HAVE SUFFERED TO GET TO WHERE WE ARE,” THEY SAID.
The singers released the song in audio form and now Kristoff has gone ahead to produce a video.
“ACCORDING TO DIGITAL MEDIUMS, THE ‘GANG’ JOINED YOUTUBE ON SEPTEMBER 11TH 2019 WITH 39 SUBSCRIBERS AS OF SEPTEMBER 14TH 2019. THE FIRST VIDEO WAS PUBLISHED BY VDJ JONES AS A PROMOTION VIDEO ON SEPTEMBER 14TH AFTER THE RELEASE OF KRISTOFF’S MUSIC VIDEO A DAY PRIOR.”
