Social media was on fire over the weekend when American star, Pia Mia released her new single “I’m a fan” featuring Jeremih, which happened to be a replica of Nigerian rapper/singer, Phyno’s “I’m a fan” featuring DeCarlo and Mr Eazi. Both songs obviously share the same lyrics, beat, melody as well as title.
Pia Mia’s Version
You may be wondering, could this be a mere coincidence? Well, it could be more than that as reports have linked the Nigerian singer/crooner with Remo who apparently produced the song for Pia Mia.
Well, Nigerians have wasted no time in defending their own, making Pia Mia a subject of ridicule and hate on social media since the similarities were spotted. Many feel this is a copyright infringement on the part of the American star and as such Phyno should be duly compensated.
However, the question that beacons in our heart is, “who actually stole from who?”, as none of the parties involved have responded to the allegations.
Lets keep our fingers crossed as more unfolds.
