D’banj has rejected claims by his producer that Olamide stole his song.
The DB Records boss had been thrust into the middle of a controversial episode after his in-house producer, DeeVee, in a series of tweets had claimed that Olamide stole the concept of his ‘Don’t stop’ track from an unreleased D’banj song called ‘Shake It’.
Speaking with reporters at the private viewing of his visual EP “An Epic Journey,” on Tuesday, December 15, D’banj stated that there is a high traffic of musicians in house, who listen to his recordings and get inspired by them.
He said: “I didn’t know about the message from DeeVee but the truth is the truth. My house is open; I have songs you guys have not heard. I have songs that I’m about to release with producers you guys have asked me to work with. From time, anyone can come into my studio and listen to our songs and not just Olamide can come in. To me, it’s not stealing, I see it as inspiration.
“This particular one, this is a line I have been saying for a long time, “Shake it, don’t break it, it took your mama nine months to make it.” I actually heard it from Prince Aremo Oniru. Even Baddo (Olamide) had played about it saying, “Baba if you no use this line I go use am o” but I said I go use am.”
