Kenyan rapper Kennedy Ombima, better known by his stage name King Kaka has taken to Instagram to call out upcoming artists for making copyright claims falsely just to chase clout.
The 34 year old musician has not only called them out, but has also stressed that his song featuring Otile Brown was made purely from scratch.
The song dubbed ‘Fight’ had already gathered over half a million views on YouTube; but has since been lifted due to copyright claims. Filled with rage, King Kaka wrote on his Instagram;

The claims come just days after Krispah’s song dubbed ‘Ndovu Ni Kuu’ featuring Khaligraph Jones and Boutross was removed from YouTube due the copyright issues.
An artist by the name Dexter claimed that the song had sampled his music beat. On the contrary, Krispah stated otherwise, saying that Dexter, who reported the song, was among the Kenyatta University’s staff who were up in arms to pull the song down.
The track had over 3.5 Million views on YouTube before it was removed from the platform. However, Krispah took the necessary action and made sure the song was brought back.
Do you think upcoming artists are using the copyright stunt as a means to be popular?
