An up-and-coming rapper, Kwabena Currency, has accused popular Ghanaian musician Kofi Kinaata of stealing his song Things Fall Apart.
According to Currency, he had presented the music idea to Kinaata’s manager for collaboration.
However, they declined to feature because Kofi would not feature on a cover and advised that Kwabena Currency got a recording beat.
He added that his Kinaata’s camp mentioned a huge amount which he couldn’t afford, and so he decided he would release the cover and then when he gets money later, release the original song with Kinaata.
Kwabena Currency mentioned the title of his song as Pe eni be shwe, which literally means come and see something with your eyes.
He said he later got support from school father and called Kinaata’s manager who said they would take 10,000 for the feature.
Kwabena said he begged for reduction because he could not afford that amount.
“Even though they only came down to 8,000 cedis, I still could not pay so I decided to wait again before featuring Kinaata,” he explained.
However, before he could know it, Kofi Kinaata had released his Things Fall Apart song leaving him very disappointed.
Please, listen to Currency’s claim from the 15th minute:
Meanwhile, Kofi Kinaata is known for similar hit songs including his ever first Susuka, Sweetie Pie, and others.
He has won many awards for his lyrical contents for his song with the most recent one being Things Fall Apart winning Album of the Year at the 2020 3Music Awards.
