Nairobi - Did Willy Paul steal the beats to hit song Tam Tam?
Allegations have been raised claiming that Willy Paul has
stolen the beats to his latest release called TamTam, from another artists who
he worked with in 2013. The artist who goes by the name of Elijah Prince
claimed that the track was ripped off his original track, which he published on
YouTube in October Last year.
The track features DK Kwenye
Beat and Willy Paul as supporting artists.

To be honest, the two songs sound incredibly alike, and the
fact that one is called Kitamtam and the other Tamtam adds to the growing list
of similarities between the two. The only problem with Elijah’s story is the
fact that his version of the track was uploaded after Willy Paul released the
original audio to his TamTam track.
Elijah uploaded his track on the 16th
of October, approximately 20 days after Willy Paul published.
There is no official word of this matter from Willy Paul,
but we are expected to hear something from him through his social media sites
soon. In the meantime you be the judge of this story by listening to both the
Willy and Size 8: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRkkLKZEaTo
