Rapper Kristoff has now sought legal action against upcoming artistes Effect Gang after they alleged he stole their song.
The song which premiered on Youtube on September 13 has been the subject of controversy with the upcoming artistes claiming they are the original owners of the song.
Kristoff has since rubbished the claims arguing that he has never met Effect Gang.
He also added that the song was recorded four months ago, and the video shot sometime in August therefore he couldn’t have stolen it.\
“BASH was scripted and recorded 4 months ago, May 2019 to be precise. The video was shot in August 2019 and a trailer announcing the release was published on September 12th 2019. It is a copyrighted track under KECOBO. The story has been one –sided all through,how would I steal a song of people I had never seen or heard before in my life?” he said
Through his lawyer James T Makori advocate, Kristoff is now demanding an apology from the new artistes.
In an earlier statement, Kristoff’s team had told Effect gang to withdraw their statement failure to which legal action would be taken.
“Kristoff’s management has not taken the allegations politely as such indictment is jeopardizing to their clients’ brand and want the ‘gang’ to withdraw their statement or legal pursuit will be taken up. There are better, mature and professional ways to get attention and collaborations for upcoming artists looking to merge with growing and/or established artists.” Read part of the statement
