Teen rap crew, Camp Mulla are smack in the middle of a release wrangle between Bernsoft and Sub Sahara records over their peace song, If You Believe.
Camp Mulla released their debut single this year ahead of the March 4 elections. This song is both a prayer and an awareness campaign for peace and prosperity in Kenya.
Bernard Kioko of Bernsoft claims that the song was "first" recorded under their label and "refused to comment further".
However an inside source claims they were not informed of the song's release.
"It was recorded a year ago with the intention of a release on a date close to the elections. Because the producer did it under employment with Bernsoft they should have cleared it with them first," the source said.
Eve Zinzi of Sub Sahara told Word Is, "What I know is that (Ken) Kanyeria composed the song himself. And yes, he used to work at Bernsoft but he has the rights over the song."
On the Sub Sahara YouTube channel the song is attributed to the label and with Kus-Ma as the producer and Ken Kanyeria as the composer.
