The issue of established artistes and producers taking songs from ‘yet to blow’ acts has been an subject of concern for quite some time now.
Recently, Kurl Songx also accused Kaywa of Highly spiritual of taking his song, titled ‘Dwe’, removed his voice and gave it to his signees, Krymi and Drew This is not the first accusation coming from an up and coming artiste. There have been cases before this.
In 2019, Kweku Smoke also accused Shatta Wale of stealing his beat when he played it for him to listen.
Another artiste who has added his voice to confirm this activity is up and coming artiste, Imrana.
“I know this is a difficult issue to raise but somebody has to say it the way it is. Sincerely, some of these big artistes are just sabotaging underground artistes by stealing their songs.
“I know there are few bold ones who have come out to tell their story but they don’t get justice because they are fighting against giants.
“It is very unfortunate that this issue has been shelved but I believe it is time for an open discussion since it is killing the energy of young artistes,” he told Graphic Showbiz in an interview.
The ‘Imagine Say’ hitmaker, however, added that sometimes the act is aided by beat producers.
“I don’t blame these artistes entirely because some sound engineers and producers sometimes give the songs to them.
“For instance, when a young artiste record but doesn’t have the resources to master or complete the production and leaves it with producers, they sell them and defend that it is their property which is not right.
“I’m expecting a lot of bashing for this but I’m very ready for it because somebody has to stand up for the truth,” noted.
He therefore asked that the media give attention to trying artistes like himself.
Imrana caught the attention of the public with his song which trended on social and also got Samini to do the remix.
He is out with ‘Who Born You’ which features Fameye.
