COPYRIGHT SAGA: ‘WHO YOU EPP’ ORIGINAL SONG OWNER SURFACES, SEEK CREDIT FROM OLAMIDE [MUST READ]


The Year is still quiet Young but it has experienced more controversies than hits songs.
Firstly the New Year was welcomed with Olamide vs Don Jazzy beef, which later split to Cynthia Morgan Vs Davido. Black Face vs 2baba and WizKids, Dammy Krane Vs WizKids and lastly the Psquare brothers.

Now the latest one is between South South proud Son Shuun Bebe and South West son of the soil, Olamide.

I’m amazed over how many numbers of remix and remake of Olamide's song title "Who You EPP". A title coined from Shuun Bebe's evergreen hit single, "WHO YOU HELP". A street anthem till tomorrow in the South South. A Song that is gradually creeping into the hearts of Fans Nationwide.

Ever since Olamide decides to use the same name but different spellings, it has gone everywhere within a matter of days. But the sad part of it is that no credit was given to the owner of the title.

 Olamide still remains a hit maker but not giving credit to the young man who needs just a little support to grow is what we are trying to look into.

We all saw how furious Olamide was when Lil Kesh wasn't given the next rated at Headies just because he felt Lil Kesh should have been given the award and most people share his opinion.

It’s Annoying and frustrating, when after putting all your energy into a work and someone comes and take all the Glory.

That's what Olamide is currently doing to Shuun Bebe unknown. Give me some credit is all he is asking for.

Am not accusing Olamide of Theft and neither is Shuun Bebe because I have listened to the Song and it's far different from Shuun Bebe's own. The only similarity is the Song Title and Chorus.

Olamide has seen Shuun Bebe performed this song and the kind of love people are showing him up the stage and the best bet is for Olamide to approach Shuun Bebe for a collabo.

We have heard a rumour of Dbanj approach him(Olamide) for Go Dow Low Remix, How Dbanj also approached Oriste-Femi for " DOUBLE WAHALA" remix and how recently, Davido approached Humble Smith for Osinach remix to just to talk about his baby scandal.

Just one collabo can solve some artist problem. Remember it was Olamide featuring on Phyno's Ghost Mode, that made him what he is today.

Even recently, just because Drake loved WizKid's Ojuelegba, he jumped on it and still gave him that credit. That's what big artists do to support young artists that are still learning the ropes.

Nobody is an island in this business and so we need to support each other to grow.

Because when you leave the music scene, your numbers of hit Songs won't matter much but the legacies you leave behind.

I have seen more than 20 remixes of Who You EPP mixtape And Boom attention is gradually shifting from Shuun Bebe "Who You help" to Olamide's "Who you EPP".

Let credit be given to inventors. For the industry to grow, A-list artists should also give respect to the up-and-coming because they were once like them.

Shuun Bebe to me has displayed a high level of maturity since this whole thing started. He has refused to be dragged into the " You Stole My Song" blame game, just to gain cheap popularity as a most upcoming artist would do. And I respect him for that.

All he is asking is for Olamide to give him credit for his work and which is normal worldwide.

I wanted to urge Olamide to stretch a hand of friendship to this young man and see ways they can settle this issue once and for all.

I also want to use this medium to urge Shuun Bebe not to ever relent in his pursuit of Glory. These are signs of Good things to come. I pray more hits will come and we shall be here to celebrate with him.

The God that did it for Olamide will surely do it for him.
