There’s an ongoing drama on Social Media right now, after American singer, Pia Mia released a new track titled “I am a Fan”.. But Nigerians are dragging her for stealing the song from Nigeria’s Phyno.
We quickly did a quick check on both of the songs.. and we found out that Pia’s version was a complete rip off of Phyno’s song. Pia’s version carries the same hook, same melody with altered lyrics, and that’s not counting the fact that is shares the same title with the song dropped in 2016 by Phyno, Mr Eazi and DeCarlo off his Playmaker’s album.
Listen to Pia Mia and Jeremih’s version:
And here’s Phyno’s song of same name, featuring Mr Eazi and DeCarlo:
Here’s sample of what upset music lovers are saying:
biobiosa: “CULTURE VULTURE ALERT! Straight frauding. She and Jeremiah stole this song from a Nigerian artiste phyno. This thievery has to stop.“
queen_jennila: “This is a stolen song from Nigerian Artist @phyno .. both of you should get yourself a lawyer @jeremih and @piamia 😖.. not cool 👎👎👎”
m.dottydot: “Bruh this is pure plagiarism!!!!“
Funny thing is, the song by Pia isn’t a cover, but an Official single released by her record label.. and she’s promoting it seriously!
