Young fast rising Nigerian Hip-hop award winner Wizkid has been accused of song theft by a 300level English language student of Adekunle Ajasin University. She accused Wizkid of stealing the song ‘pakurumo’ which she wrote and performed at a show in ado ekiti last year. She said
”I bought a copy in akure and right there, track four is my song. He even retained my title of the song, but tried his best to alter the ekiti dialect that gave the song a special appeal”
She however said she’s not surprised considering that his mentor (popularly believed to be Banky W) sampled a popular female us- based musician’s song that brought him fame.
She said “I may be poor, but I’ve sent the video to a lawyer and very soon, the guy will soon be exposed for who he is. I can’t believe Nigerians fawn after the guy knowing well that he is not that talented, forget the voice”
