Kibra based artist Stivo Simple Boy has accused Tanzanian singer Harmonize for stealing his song ‘Inauma’.
The accusation comes following the release of Harmonize’s new banger ‘Hainisutui’ which Stivo claims was ripped off his song ‘Inauma’ which was released last year.
Taking to his Instagram account, Stivo shared a video of him and Byzzo the baddest accusing Konde Boy of using Inauma line in his new song without their consent.
Mihadarati hitmaker went on to say that his partner and he have been receiving phone calls and messages from fans informing them about what Harmonize did.
“Mafans wananipigia simu wananitumia message ati ngoma yetu inauma but itabidi uzoe imeibwa na harmonize,pia Byzzo anapigiwa,”he said.
On the other hand, Byzzo said that ever since they released that song, no one has ever approached them asking for permission to use any line from that song.
Adding that their management is looking into the matter.
“Mimi Pia napigiwa na kutumiwa message na fans ati Harmonize ameiba ngoma yetu inauma but itabii uzoe na sisi toka tu upload hii ngoma hakuna mtu ameshai tuomba ruhusa atumie hii ngoma tumeongea na management kama communication yoyote imefanyika wakasema hakuna though wanaendelea kuchunguza sisi vile tuko hapa hatujui anything na hakuna mtu alituomba ruhusa,”he said.
However, this is not the first time Harmonize has been accused of stealing a song by Kenyan artist.
A few months ago, Kenyan producer Magic Enga accused Harmonize of ripping off the beats of ‘Uno’from his song ‘Dundaing’.
Enga asked the ex-Wasafi Records singer to delete the song in a week or face the consequences.
“Like nothing happened @harmonize_tz Gat some free beats for you bro… I’m giving you 1 week take down the song otherwise… Natoa mwenye let me put it in Swahili so that you can understand what I’m trying to say,” he wrote.
