Did Sarkodie Steal American Singer Ne-Yo’s “DO YOU” Song? Check The Similarities (video)
Yesterday, Ghana’s most decorated and undoubtedly most celebrated rapper, Michael Owusu Addo, popularly known as Sarkodie has dropped a new song dubbed ‘Do You’ as reported on earlier by Gossips24.com.
The controversy comes in after music enthusiasts spotted similarities in the Ghanaian rapper’s song, something we believe should rather be called a copied song.
Why copied? It appears Sarkodie dubbed some lines from American R&B singer, Ne-Yo’s song which is also titled DO YOU.
Let’s break it down for you!
Now, American singer, Ne-Yo according to our checks released the original or better still his version of Do You in 2009.
Sarkodie after close to 9 years or 10 years of the release of the original song by Ne-Yo comes in with Do You, a song we are to believe is the original.
However, our listening ears made us aware that the chorus in both songs are similar. In Sarkodie’s case, his chorus was sang by Mr. Eazi and we don’t know if it was written for the Nigerian singer or he wrote it himself.
The similarity in Ne-Yo’s version – released 9years ago – and Sarkodie ft Mr Eazi’s version which was released just yesterday makes us wonder who copied who?
This has caused a controversy on social media as people suggest/allege the rapper stole the song. That notwithstanding, Sark’s version has garnered close to 150k views on YouTube.
