Days after releasing his new hit Matatu alongside upcoming rapper K-Mess Ogopa signed singer Kenzo has been accused of plagiarism.
Bassil is accusing Kenzo of plagiarising not only the song's chorus but also the title. However K-Mess who is featured on the song and was in a rap group with Basil accuses him of being "opportunistic".
K Mess told Word is, "Bassil just wants to make his name through these claims. We were a trio made of Fidempa, Bassil and I and had recorded a demo of the song before approaching Ogopa. When we got there we agreed to feature Kenzo so as to give the song some mileage. However in between the recording sessions Bassil disappeared and attempts to get him to the studio were futile. He is now mad that the song is a hit and wants to ride on it's fame to make his name."
K-Mess further explained that Kenzo had even paid for their studio fees to record another song. "Kenzo just wanted to see us grow. In fact there is a time when he want to Bungoma and invited Bassil on stage and they performed the song together. I just don't understand what has gotten over him," he added.
Kenzo on his part said, "We had a gentleman's agreement and he knows it. it's sad that this has happened but I wish him well."
