King Kaka angry after his song is pulled down from YouTube
Popular Kenyan Rapper King Kaka has expressed anger after his hit song was pulled down from YouTube over copyright issues.
The song dubbed Fight which featured Otile Brown had already garnered over 500,000 views in the online video sharing platform.
Taking to his Instagram page, the rapper angrily called out other artists telling them to stop chasing clout with other people’s music and make music by themselves.
The dundaying hit maker angrily said that they had created the music from scratch starting from the beats to the words of each verse.
“Hizi Copyright Claim zimekuwa mingi. People should stop clout chasing and just make music.
A product that we made from scratch with @otilebrown in a studio tena iko na kesi,” wrote King Kaka.
However, musician Otile Brown has not talked about the issue and has been silent since the incident happened.
This is the second music King Kaka and Otile Brown have produced together after they released alivyonipenda four years ago.
Lately there have been a lot of reports from artists that their works are being pulled down from YouTube due to copyright issues.
Yesterday, Famous comedian Crazy Kennar also took to his Instagram page and shared news that one of his videos has been pulled down from YouTube due to copyright issues claims from Omondi Timion.
“Guys let’s be serious I need my video back🙁,” wrote Crazy Kennar.
Early this week popular music ‘Ndovu ni Kuu’ by Krispah was pulled down from YouTube after Dexta claimed it was copied from him.
Lucky for him, his song was restored back to YouTube after Dexta withdrew the complaint he had made against the musician.
Most of the copyright claims have been made by upcoming artists who claim that the renowned artists keep stealing their beats. Do you think those claiming copyright issues are chasing clout like King Kaka has said?
