Upcoming Ghanaian Musician, C Jay has expressed his disappointment in star musicians he took as role models after he discovered they had stole his hook in a recent song.
The singer revealed that he tagged the Nigerian superstars when he posted his song on social media only to find out some days later through a lady that his songs had been tampered with.
He followed up to download “Bank Alert,” listened and realized that Psquare stole his tune as well as some of his lines.
Expaining what happened in details, C Jay said:
Stealing in a professional way, Psquare new tune “bank Alert” is a sample of my tune titled “Rokoto”. I released Rokoto early this year; the tune went viral on social media, Facebook, Twitter, and the rest. I posted the link on Psquare wall on facebook, months later I got a tag from a female musician here in Ghana, she updated on Facebook that P square’s new tune (“BankAlert” sounds like Cjay Rokoto”). This is where I came in the story, I quickly downloaded their tune to listen and it was very bad that they sampled almost everything in my Rokoto tune. From the bassline, the rhythm, the progression, the grove and even took the first line of ma first verse (today na today ooo) from ma tune “Rokoto”. I respect Psquare a lot; I learn from them, never thought they could do this to a poor boy like me who has struggled for more thirteen years been underground. I wish ma voice will reach as far as it can, so everyone will know I’m disappointed in them.“Bank Alert” is a nice song, I don’t doubt it, but they don’t have to do this to me as a whole, no disrespect, PrSQUARE SAMPLE MY SONG ROKOTO, N AM DISAPPOINTED IN THEM…..”
