    My take on dis is dat no bit is owned by anybody. For instance Awilo longomba bit was used even in singn xristian songs but p square shud have avoided dis accusation by using a different bit since they are all stars

    evri bodi shuld mind his or her buz. Becoz in 1 way or d other we do copy 4rm pple ideas. Dat’z wot make uz imperfect. Even Timaya self copiez 4rm otherz.

    P-square and timaya! There’s nothing wrong about copying the instrumental or beat if i may say,but there’s something wrong if they didnt pay for the beat before using it,because if they don’t pay for the beat and they use it illegally not even for a mixtape but to sell the song then if Timaya sues them to court they’ll surely pay any amount he request,take for example the issue of kelly handsome using D’banj’s ogbono feli feli beat to sing with and sell the song,he was sued to court and he paid the fine demanded by D’banj and the then mo-hit’s family.But what i suggest is that nigerian’s should have love for one another,because if somebody uses your beat to sing a song it’s even a promotion,it shows how skillful you are,SO WHAT’S NEXT LET’S WAIT FOR TIMAYA’S RESPOND!

    Timaya I lov d way u always proof maturity,u showed Psqure dat u are mature dan dem,u alone givs inspiration to Two call dem self Psqure is so shamfull,a question is dat,since Psqure started how many up comin artist,hav dey help 2b bcom little super star,look at May D,Psqure was usin d guy lik water without a treatment,until d guy survive by him self after all d sacrifice he made 4 Psqure,so Psqure yo money is only 4yo own flex but not 2survive or a help 2a common man in street,Timaya keep it up,u are beter dan dem bcoz dey are two without a reason for common man.

    Come o, ona ear dey pain ona? Honestly 4 me dia’s notin similar b/w these 2 songs rada dis argument should either b who is beta dan who or b/w d tone of shake ur bum bum nd the thing by atumpan. Go back nd listen carefully. Buh seriouly timaya cnt b compared 2 p square in anyway. P square is d definition of talent itself
