Becca addresses song theft claims
Singer Becca has taken time to digest issues concerning her single ‘No One’ which she released about three months ago.
Speaking in an interview, with Abeiku Santana, the songstress said she could not comprehend critics chastising her amid claims that she sampled South African singer, Sho Madjozi’s, ‘John Cena’ song.
Although there are similarities between John Cena and No One, Becca said it was because she was trying a genre of music called Gqom.
She explained that it is an electronic dance music that emerged in the early 2010 from Durban, South Africa.
The ‘African Woman’ singer said people didn’t even know the relationship she had with Sho Madjozi yet, they went ahead to make assumptions.
“So Madjozi owns the song and she hasn’t come out to say anything? In this virtual world? It’s been three months since I released the song.
“There are different genres of music. In South Africa, there are many beats there. I chose to do Gqom beats. If you listen to the two songs, they all sound alike. If we play 10 Gqom beats, you will be wondering if they are all the same song,” she said on Okay FM.
Becca disclosed that when people were bashing her in Ghana, the song was trending at number two in South Africa.
Asked why she didn’t come out to address critics earlier, she said, “if there was the need for me to educate, they could have let me. There were too many enemies pushing the agenda. God has ways of doing it; the melodies and beats may sound alike just like the way shirts can look similar.”
