Ever since Davido dropped his spanking new video for his new single, “Gobe”, about two days ago, which has now surpassed 100,000 views on Youtube (Congratulations Davido!), it came along with a lot of controversy.
From the grapevine, Davido had allegedly stolen the song – its production, lyrics et al – from an up-and-coming act, Password, who had released a song of the same title and had just made a few tweaks to the verses and hook.
The twitterverse was alive with curses and insults to the “Omo Baba Olowo” as a lot were quick to believe this to be true. As a matter of fact, the individual behind this account – @gobepassword (who just opened the Twitter account on February 26th, 2013) began to rant and slander Davido by saying:
I did not do any deal with @iam_davido and @iam_shizzi, My MGT will press charges!
and the ranting went on for all of his/her present sixteen tweets. Soon enough, Davido quelled the controversy and rumors when he revealed that – although his new single is a re-make of Password‘s “Gobe” – his new single was in fact done with the artist and HKN’s in-house producer, Shizzi.@iam_davido Why will you steal my song, and claim that i sold it to you? have we ever met before?
