Lynx Entertainment signee KiDi and UK-based afrobeats duo Kwamz & Flava have stitched up their social media brawl where he [KiDi] was accused of stealing their hook “enjoyment”.
In a social media post, the duo wrote:
“@kiDimusic, after you contacted Flava, about using the enjoyment vibe and he sad no becuase we wanted to release ours first, you thought you were a bad boy and still released it, I’m not even pised about the song becuase we make bangers but if you disrespect the thing thats different story Gee.
“Just to clarify the situation, it’s about respect, Kwamz & Flava have never stolen anyone’s idea or song or movement ever. We offer so much to people not only positive energy, we never cheat the game and play the game with cards.
KiDi reacting to the issue, in an interview on Showbiz 926 on 3FM with MzGee, narrated that “during the holidays, I heard this enjoyment thing going around then I made it into a song because I was like if it is what it is then it’s actually nice so I actually asked [people around] is it a song they said it’s not a song. I was like cool so then I would like to put into a song”.
“So I was playing it to people. They said oh this actually comes from a video that was posted on Snapchat by some guy,” the ‘Odo’ hitmaker narrated.
The talented musician added, “I saw the video and I realised it was Flava from Kwamz & Flava. Shout out to them, so I saw that he was playing Runtown’s ‘Mad Over You’ in the video and you know in that song there’s a part where it says ‘and if she follow me go now enjoyment go kill am o’ so he kept repeating ‘enjoyment’, ‘enjoyment’ and all of a sudden enjoyment is being owned by Kwamz & Flava is what I’m hearing.”
The ‘Mr Badman’ hitmaker again stressed on the fact that he did not go to seek permission and that nobody asks for permission to use a word.
In a response, Flava stated that prior to the release of the song, the title was never ‘Enjoyment’ and that it had totally a different chorus and name.
Flava claimed he heard both versions of the song before and after and that the artistes who were supposed to be on KiDi’s song asked him not to use the hook.
Flava added that they don’t seek to achieve anything but KiDi refused to reply his messages when he contacted him about the issue.
Kwamz & Flava also admitted sending threats to express how they felt towards him which stemmed from the fact that KiDi stopped replying to their messages.
KiDi, on his part, reached out to the duo to express his displeasure with regard to the threats they sent him but called on them to collaborate on their version of the song to make it a hit.
Flava, in response, took the opportunity to apologise to KiDi on behalf of the group for any disrespectful thing they said to him.
