The internet is currently buzzing over Davido‘s new single ‘Gobe‘ which he officially released yesterday February, 25, 2013 but that’s not all that causing him to trend on social network Twitter.
Hours after the release, another version quite similar to the pop star’s surfaced online. Apparently the same song also titled ‘Gobe‘ was released a year ago by an upcoming singer-producer named Password.
Password (who gained little buzz after featuring on Darey’s ‘Style na style’ remix) had made online release for the same song in July 2011 but it seemed not to have garnered any buzz back then.
Sources tell us Password who produced and wrote the first version of ‘Gobe’ allegedly sold the song to Davido for a sum of money possibly up to N500,000.
‘Dude sold the song to Davido. He produced and wrote it, all of a sudden they are saying Shizzi produced it‘, a studio rat and close friend to Password told NET in anonymity.
Both parties have not been responsive to queries over the matter but after numerous comments were made on music blogs and social networks Twitter and Facebook about the stunning similarities between the songs, Davido and Password are now very vocal on Twitter about the matter.
‘They noticed people had found out, it’s like Password didn’t tell Davido that he had released the song before he sold it‘.
Davido tweeted; Big ups 2 @iamshizzi and @iam_password for such a great combination of work for GOBE! More stuff 2 come HKN!
Password was also very co-operative as he also tweeted in support; The song Gobe was officially replaced by @iam_davido hu co-wrote on d new version and I @iam-password is very happy and satisfied.
HKN in-house producer also tweeted; Follow my gud friend @iam_password and thanx to him and d inspiration we all put into gobe! Cc”@iam_Davido.
