Nigerian Afrobeats singer, Damini Ogulu also known as Burna Boy, has been called out for allegedly copying the title and lyrics of an unknown artiste’s song.
The Grammy winner was alleged to have sampled ‘Common Person’ from an artiste known as MC Olopka who also gave his track the same title.
A PR specialist, Sakpo called out Burna and drew the attention of netizens to his discovery and shared a video on microblogging site, Twitter to backup his claim.
The clip he uploaded was a music video for MC Olokpa’s own version of the song which the African Giant was called out for sampling.
Sakpo tweeted; “So the common person supposed sample was a cover, it looked so convincing if we put Burna history with Sampling into consideration.
He added; “Apparently, Burna sampled COMMON PERSON from this” alongside the music video.
Other social media users joined in bashing Burna Boy for releasing a song that he allegedly copied and passed off as original.
