Phyno, Pia Mia, Pulse, the controversial song and all the drama

Once again, there is drama in the Nigerian music scene and this time a lot of the players involved are really angry. So here's the gist. The song ‘I’m a fan’ is in the center of an international drama & while music fans are shrugging it off as a publicity stunt, music pundits believe it goes deeper that that.

In 2016 Phyno dropped his second album titled 'Paymaker' and it had a song called 'I'm a fan' featuring Mr Eazi and Decarlo. Then two days ago, American singer and songwriter, Pia Mia, released a version of the same song 'I'm a fan' which featured singer Jeremih.


Her version of the song had striking similarities with one released by Phyno including the production, chorus, and verse. Immediately after her own release, the internet went bunkers. Then Pulseng went on to do a report on the story that partly reads;
'According to verified sources close to Phyno’s camp, the rapper was working on incorporating Island-ready production on his sophomore album to tap into the international market. He was in talks with Remo (the producer), who sent him the song to work with. “The guy sent the song to us, and we wanted to work together, but something happened and we couldn’t use it,” a source told Pulse'.
The Pulseng report continues to say,
'due to issues regarding remuneration, clearances and demands, Phyno and Remo did not work together. But Phyno liked the idea of the sound, so he sought the help of producer Benjamz, who reconstructed the single, and brought on Mr Eazi and Decarlo to collaborate and release the record. Remo, who had totally abandoned the Phyno project, still has his music, and so when Pia Mia tapped him and Jeremih for a new record, they had this one ready-made for her to record and release'.
This report and alleged source from Phyno's camp didn't go down well with the rapper who immediately took has to twitter to call out Pulse and indirectly threaten legal actions.

Phyno I'm a fan,
having listened to the two songs , the chorus is actually same looks like pulse is right. Same sounds only difference is your rap lyrics of which pia mai got it smoothly. You may have had the chorus but not the full track.
I will advise you to let the sleeping dog lie.
Most Nigerian artists copy each other which is not good for the game.
