There is a black smoke looming from the Kenyan Music Production expert fraternity after popular Producer unapologetically referred to his two able fellows as “upcoming producers”
Vicky Pon Dis and Yoh Alex are believed to have sampled the intellectual property of Producer Symo On The Beat whereby an instrumental used by one Chain Lamer to record the song “Tabia Mbaya” under the gifted hands of Producer Symo, was later sampled by Vicky Pon Dis and Yoh Alex to create Shikisha by Arrow Boy and Champion by Mck and Hope Kid.
In a whatsapp interrogation by Mzuka Kibao, Symo On the Beat though sounding disgusted and disappointed by the two copycat producers, he still unleashed the lion in his own jungle by slumming the two with a sarcastic response. And I quote “Me kwangu ni furaha kusikia upcoming producers wakisample kazi yangu.”
And now that few weeks ago another anonymous information revealed that the current musical hotcake Magix Enga also shoplifted Vicky Pon Dis intellectual property leading to an ugly fight that never saw the light of mainstream, can we say that no producer is safe as at now. Its a witch hunt thingie gone way too far.
