‘Phyno recreated the Pia Mia’s I’m a Fan song without Producer’s consent’
It was different hard to believe that American singer Pia Mia stole Phyno’s ‘I’m a fan’ song. According to new reports, Phyno had reached out to the producer of the Pia Mia version, Remo the Hitmaaker for input on his ‘The Playmaker’ album back in 2016 where he sent them the song.
Phyno then did the wrong thing and got Nigerian producer to recreate the song sent by Remo.
According to a report,
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.
However, no official word from either party.
Can Nigerian artistes do better?
Update: Phyno has tweeted in reaction to the news, he says: U will hear from me and my team at the right time ..
