It so happens Wizkid’s holla at your boy was not a total new thought-out or original effort. Wizkid sorta p-squared it. Is he as amazing as, www.questionmarkmag.com/2010/10/wizkid-may-not-be-as-amazing-as-the-hype-says/

Lwkmd @ collecting inspiration

wow, this would be a big dent on his ego and image if it is true, is this not the same boy banky w is always hyping, its really e-m-easy, but i dont see a big deal in this cuz the boy sounds like sean kingston, even pype sounds like sean paul so wetin dey there, its normal for him to collect inspiration from a foreign artist and do copy and paste often. kaypumpin no laugh again o grin grin he is not the first nigerian artist to steal or collect inspiration from somebody, even jay-z bites annually from biggie grin am not saying it is right to steal o, but i dont see any thing wrong in collecting inspiration from those u look up to,

The track is called GIRLS. It's by a korean artist named se7en. This is the youtube link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WRsILQP_O04&feature=related. I don't know how to post the video. He stole huge portions of Holla at your boy from this record. He even copied the same lyrics. Very disappointing.

Please, please, this is what's killing the industry in Nigeria. Small mindedness and people like you guys who talk without thinking. What you are basically saying, is that Wizkid can only blow in Nigeria. Have you stopped to think what will happen if Holla at your Boy becomes popular outside of Africa?
He will be sued to high heaven and his international career will be over before it starts. There's a big difference between stealing a harmony or something that sounds similar, to stealing the Harmony and LYRICS AS WELL.
If you're an artist, write your own song. Don't steal someone else's song that they worked hard for and shot video and featured Lil Kim on and then pass it off as your own original work. Or at least acknowledge the Se7en guy for his efforts.

Na wah for una.

This is just the typical Naija PHD (PULL HIM DOWN) Syndrome dat worries most Nigerians in the world. once dey see a fellow Nigerian making waves, dey tend to seek and destroy. What is new in someone sampling another artist beat/ song? (not that its right as well) many artist in the US do it day in day out including the big names in hip hop. dey sample old songs and make it theirs. For ur information, Whizkid's version is way better than the original despite having lil kim rap in the original. NIGERIANS LEARN TO APPRECIATE UR OWN PEOPLE. if this was Drake who did what Wizkid kid did you haters will be all over the dance floor at parties or clubs requesting his crappy song. Inferiority complex will kill una finish.
Re: Wizkid Stole 'holla At Ur Boi"? by Genuflect(m): 11:26am On Oct 26, 2010
Let's cut the bullcrap. Wizkid stole some part of that song. I'm not even going to say whether it's wrong or not, I just hope it doesn't backfire

Any small thing, they start calling hater this hater that. Sampling is nothing new, it's allowed, no one is disputing that. BUT YOU MUST OBTAIN CLEARANCE FROM THE ARTIST YOU'RE SAMPLING if you plan to sell you record legally abroad and avoid lawsuits.

Please talk intelligently. Now that this situation has been exposed. EME should work towards obtaining clearance from se7en for the portions of the song sampled/copied. The song is a good song, that can go far. It will be a shame for it to fall because of something like this.

He stole the tune and the lyrics??

Why the Bleep??

it is ok to use another beat and rap on it if it is a mixtape.
but stealing lines and not modifying it well, thats bad, but truth be told everyone gets inspiration from others, me personally i get inspiration from listening to notorious big.! so free the poor boy.!! people make mistakes, i remember notjustok.com crucifying ''smiley'' for making an ordinary cover, sampling and gettin inspiration from others are very common in global music these days.
i guess the wizkid boy has many enemies in the music circuit. if not i dont know why this should be a big deal.  haters are everywhere.nigerians sha

Did you say the same thing for Banky W, Ebutemeta?
Did you say the same thing for Tuface, If love is a crime?
Did you say the same thing for OJB Jezreel, Searching
Did u say the same thing for P Square, Bizzy Body, Senorita, Temptation and a whole lot of them?

Didn't these song go beyond the nigerian borders?
So what are you saying, ?
Even if he get sued, na him start am?
I'm not tryna justify his doing it sha, i'm just saying some peeps are picking on him,
coz other peep have done worse and still get accolades from you lots,

BTW, I heard the small boy is acting all proud and haughty these days, so i guess this is one way to cool him down. hehehe grin grin grin

Please stop all this hating and enemies talk now. It's too much. This forum is actually helping the guy. So if anyone doesn't talk like a Zombie, he is now a hater? This is quite bad.
It is a big deal because to make real money in the music business, you have to go international. It's a well established fact. You have to look at the big picture.
He can't even perform this song abroad, because if the se7en guys record company hear of it, they can shut the show down.
Please encourage originality. Inspiration and plagirism are not the same thing. Look at 9ice for example. The real deal. An artist i truely respect. |No photocopy.

abio genu, he just be like say make ofoka or frijos blow up now, make we come dey form A-list celebrity for genuflect ,streetwsie and krayola and co, people wey we start and hussle together, na eff up now, the wizkid boy should have learnt about managing stardom. i guess its a maturity issue ,maybe he is not matured enuff, thats why i like someone like vector, vec will never form A-list for u even tho he has blow up massively! my conclusion is the wiskid boy is not matured thats why he is forming for all his old school paddies which is why they want to see him soft pedal. na so life be sha. make people free the boy sha. he is not the first to do this and will not be the last grin  even jayz bites!!  camron even nicknamed jayz  swagger jacker, chiogo should know more about this grin

btw i think the message and moral in all this is for all naija artists or aspiring artist to be 100% original like mr audio pointed out
