Did Willy Paul steal hit song TamTam?

05 September 2014, 16:50 Eugene Odanga

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 tracks here:
