What is happening? Nigerians copying Kenyan music!!!
While allegations of musicians stealing or copying other artistes’ songs or sounds are not new, this one surely deserves your attention.
There are a lot of similarities between Eric Onyango Omollo aka Qritiqal’s song Won’t Tell and Patrick Nnaemeka Okorie aka Patoranking and Naseeb Abdul Juma aka Diamond Platnumz’ song, Love You Die, leaving many Kenyans with many questions than answers.
Qritiqal is the latest Kenyan singer signed by Nigerian music label, Chocolate City.
Won’t Tell was released on 18th April 2017 while Patoranking and Diamond Platnumz’ Love you die was released on 1st September 2017. Isn’t that interesting and a bit fishy at the same time?
Many among them popular publicist, Ado Veli has come out to talk about this song and he said
“I happen to stumble upon similarities between Qritiqal’s song Won’t Tell and Patoranking and Diamond’s song, Love You Die. Love you die and Won’t Tell both have an afro fused reggae ragga rhythm to it. The melodies in both songs are somehow similar especially in the beginning of the song even though the lyrics and vocals are marked differently.”
