Mr. Drew is gradually gaining familiarity for sampling other artistes works and passing them on as his.
If memories could serve as right, it could be recalled that a few months ago, the official music video of his hit song “Eat” featuring legendary Dancehall artist Stonebwoy, was taken down by YouTube over copyright claims. “Eat” is a sampled cover of Nigerian-American singer Rotimi’s Love Riddim, which was released in 2019.
The visuals of Mr Drew’s Eat was taken down after Empire, Rotimi’s record label, made copyright claims to the content. “This video contains content from EMPIRE, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds,” YouTube stated.
In a related development, the artiste has released a new song titled ‘This Year’ which was released a few days ago and some netizens believes it’s a rip off Keche’s banger titled ‘No Dulling’ song ft artist of the year Kuami Eugene. The rhythm of the song including the style of delivery and some part of the songs beat is similar to Keche’s ‘No Dulling’ song which is currently one of the biggest songs in 2020, a situation that has caused a massive debate on social media.
It even drew Kuami Eugene attention who commented on the thread.
