Rapper Cannibal has accused fellow female rapper Femi One and Bern Mziki of stealing his song.
Cannibal who recently got saved alleges that Femi One’s Adonai song was copied from him.
“IT IS SAD TO SEE ARTISTS IN THIS TIME AND ERA STEALING SONGS AND IDEAS. IT HAS COME TO OUR ATTENTION THAT THE SONG PRODUCED BY @BERNMZIKI AND RELEASED BY @FEMI-ONE WAS DIRECTLY COPIED AND REDONE, BEFORE ITS OFFICIAL RELEASE.” Posted an agitated Cannibal.
The song which has already garnered over 30,000 views was recorded at Kaka Empire Studios, a stable owned by rapper King Kaka.
The chorus has been sung by Bern Mziki-an in house producer at Kaka Empire.
The theme of the song pours praises to the most high as depicted by its title ‘Adonai’, released two days ago.
Cannibal’s fans have joined him in condemning the development.
“Wakenya wengine bhana, kama talent hakuna si waache kulazimisha!! Hii Kenya yetu imekua ya majambazi, kutoka na politicians mpaka wasanii so sad! Mtu anaona mpaka nyimbo ya kuabudu Mungu ??hawa Wakenya wanaeza iba ata kiti cha yesu kaa chonjo,” said Fidempa.
However, others harboured a separate opinion and wanted a detailed evidence produced.
“Wapi evidence that it’s your song?? Words ain’t enough prove” wrote janemumbuake.
Cannibal’s allegations also bring to the forefront a new challenge which has not been common in musical circles, an established Star laying blame to a fellow established act?
In most cases of song theft, it is always an upcoming Star being swindled by a renowned artist, and also not secular versus gospel arm twists.
We wait with bated breath to see who will carry the day.
