Barely two days after East Africa’s most talked about couple Diamond Platnumz and Tanasha Donna dropped their collaboration, the song has already ignited controversy.
The song dubbed ‘Gere’ which now enjoys 2.1 million views on Youtube is said to have been lifted from a Brazilian artist.
Netizens are now convinced Tanasha copied her video style from a Brazilian artist known as Iza who sings in Portuguese.
Iza’s song Brisa premiered on Youtube on April 18th 2019 and currently enjoys 83 million views on Youtube.
A spot check on Youtube however shows that the two videos only have one similar set up.
The scene in question features Tanasha and her dancers dancing in front of a grass-thatched shak which also features on Iza’s song.
This is not Diamond’s first video to be rocked with controversy. In February 2019, the WCB CEO and Rayvvany were again accused of copy pasting scenes from an American song called See You again by Tyler the creator in their video Tetema
As a result of the controversy Brazilian netizens have thronged the comment section on Tanasha’s song with each giving their opinion.
