The award-winning musician has been the talk of the town after a disappointed fan pointed out that his new single ‘Wewe ni Mungu’ was copied from a popular South African tune.
The fan says he was listening to Daddy Owen’s new song when he noticed that it had some striking similarities with Kgosto Messiah released in 2011.
The allegations drew sharp reactions from from fans who faulted him for not being creative.
But in defense, Owen says that his new single is just a swahili rendition of the popular song which has since been sung in many countries.
“No one can claim the right of the song that originated from DRC and has since been sang in South Africa, Zambia just to mention a few countries. Besides I never claimed to own the song and that is why I clearly stated that the song is a rendition-in Swahili version,” he told SDE.
He further stated that people should first get their facts right before throwing stones a him.
“People should first acquaint themselves with facts before criticizing or accusing me.The fact that the songs may have some similarity in beats or even chorus doesn’t mean that I have copied anyone’s song,” Owen said.
