YEN.com.gh has obtained a short video of Dancehall musician Stonebwoy’s new song Shuga which he sang with Jamaican artiste Beenie Man.
In the video, it seems a line in the Shuga song sounds exactly like that in Shatta Wale’s Strongman song which he released about two years ago.
Apart from the similarity in the sound, the video also shows similar setting as if both artistes agreed to use the same creative idea.
Social media users are untamed because some, especially, on Shatta Wale’s side have accused Stonebwoy of stealing Shatta Wale’s style.
Kaakie, for instance, shamed Stonebwoy for copying Shatta Wale:
kaakie6: “Shame on you mr Livingston aka stonebwoy . I said it! you are a copy copy musician. only a big fool will follow and like the trash you call music. Twaaa kai. Copy copy Nation my foot.”
Michael also called Stonebwoy “copy copy”:
michaelzaba: “Copy copy stonebwoy!! Sm4lyf paah paah paah to the world jah know.”
Brian also believes Stonebwoy is “copy copy”:
brainbox_awazy: “Copy copy will not kill u #stonebuoy but heal u. Amen .”
But others, obviously, those belonging to the BHIM Nation side defended Stonebwoy.
For instance, Chabay, said even if Stonebwoy copied Shatta Wale, his “vibes sound more classic”:
chabay30: “Stonbwoy vibes sounds better and classic as compared to what you guys are talking about ..meeeennnnn.”
Another fan by the username Burniton said the lyrics and sounds are not the same:
stonebwoy_burniton_: “I beg u it’s different can’t u hear.”
Chris also said it was not true that Stonebwoy copied Shatta Wale:
ybnchris_gh: “Is not true listen to it well.”
Meanwhile, Stonebwoy, in an earlier report by YEN.com.gh has touted himself as the best musician in Ghana.
He was also in the news recently for signing a big contract with Samsung.
Though the exact amount was not told, it is said to be a multi-million dollar.
