Nigeria singer YCee has reacted to allegations levelled against him by Kenyan pop star Victoria Kimani who claimed he stole lyrics from her.
Victoria had called out YCee in her cover of #FvckYouChallenge. She said YCee stole lyrics from her without giving her credit. She had also earlier played both songs to buttress her claim that indeed Ycee stole lyrics from her.
Reacting to the accusation, Ycee denied the accusation, calling the Kenyan singer a promotion seeker, according to Saturday Beats. Ycee was speaking through one of his reps, Aquari.
“We heard the song Victoria Kimani sang claiming that we stole it from her but I think she was just chasing shadows,“`Aquari tells Saturday Beats.
He continues: “She did not reach out to us before now because she heard the song she claims Ycee stole from her several times before it was released.
“They are both artists and friends so she was privileged to hear the song several times before it was released.
“She was looking for a free promo that is just basically what she was doing. If you go online, you would read the response of people to her accusation. That is the industry for you.
“Why take your issues to the social media when you have each other’s telephone numbers? Her accusation has come to us as a shock that she would call Ycee out for such a thing.
“How can she claim that someone stole her song? It is just funny. At the moment, Ycee is very busy working on his album; in fact, he is putting finishing touches to it. Once it is done, everyone would know about it,” Aquari concludes.
