Nigerian rapper and songwriter Oludemilade Martin Alejo (born January 29, 1993), professionally known as Ycee has also reacted to being called out by Victoria Kimani in her track, saying he thought it was a joke, not until he saw the snippet on her Instagram.
He stated that the Kenyan singer was just chasing shadows over claims of stealing lyrics from her. Ycee who further revealed that Victoria Kimani never reached out to him and his team before now, added that it shows she is looking for free promotion.
Speaking with punchng.com, Saturday Beats, Ycee said;
“We heard the song Victoria Kimani sang claiming that we stole it from her but I think she was just chasing shadows.
“She did not reach out to us before now because she heard the song she claims Ycee stole from her several times before it was released.
“They are both artistes and friends so she was privileged to hear the song several times before it was released.
“She was looking for a free promo that is just basically what she was doing. If you go online, you would read the response of people to her accusation. That is the industry for you.
“Why take your issues to the social media when you have each other’s telephone numbers? Her accusation has come to us as a shock that she would call Ycee out for such a thing.
“How can she claim that someone stole her song? It is just funny. At the moment, Ycee is very busy working on his album; in fact, he is putting finishing touches to it. Once it is done, everyone would know about it.”
