Clueless Brothers, Up-and-coming artistes, are accusing dancehall group Voicemail of stealing their song.
According to Channon Brown, one of the members of the group, he, along with his brother, Naphtali, released a track called Gringo in November of last year. Voicemail also released a song of the same name earlier this year.
“Voicemail is getting airplay and more exposure from our song because
they are the more established artistes. Everybody believes that
Voicemail are the originators of Gringo, but that is not true. Mi feel a way bout it. We feel cheated,” he said.
“We released Gringo last year and it was all over the
Internet. People from all over the world saw it and were loving the song
and the dance moves. I don’t know how Voicemail hear bout the song but
dem tek it from wi.
Dem a bigger artiste and dem just tek it over. But
the good thing is that I had copywritten the song before,” Brown said.
“Voicemail need fi mek the younger artistes get a fair chance. We put
out our song and dem just jump pon it. They basically stole it. We feel
cheated,” he said.
When contacted, Craig from Voicemail told Source that the accusations are baseless.
