Beat maker Magix Enga stands down and retracts his copyright strike on Harmonize’s ‘Uno’

Kenyan producer Magix Enga has been at war on social media with Tanzanian singer Harmonize over his latest hit ‘Uno’.

As reported by The Sauce, the beatmaker made good on his numerous threats to the Bongo star over the alleged sampling of his beats in the club banger ‘Uno’. The video which had attracted millions of views was pulled down last week.

“This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Magix Enga,” a message from YouTube read.

“I’m giving you 1 week take down the song otherwise… Natoa mwenyewe let me put it in Swahili so that you can understand what I’m trying to say,” he had previously threatened.

Harmonize, through his manager Mjerumani, acknowledged the ban saying YouTube was still reviewing the alleged copyright claim.

“Tumepata Taarifa kutoka Youtube kwamba mtu mmoja ambae inasemekana kutoka nchi jirani Kenya, ametuma barua pepe kudai umililiki wa wimbo wetu Pendwa #UNO. Aidha kwa taratibu zao YouTube ni lazima wauweka private wakati wakiendelea na taratibu za kudhihirisha madai hayo,” said Mjerumani in a statement.

After the video was taken down, Magix issued more warnings on social media. to the former WCB artist to remove the song’s audio on YouTube lest he takes it down himself.

“Growth of East African music is bigger than all of us. And for this reason, I have decided that I will release my copyright strike on Uno by Harmonize. Nitarudisha Uno by Harmonize pale YouTube wakati wowote,” posted Magix.

Many fans on social media called out the dreadlocked producer saying trying to make a scandal out of nothing as he also sampled the same beat. Others said his plot to get some attention failed miserably as Harmonize did not engage him and he released his strike on the song himself.

As reported by The Sauce, Konde Boy allegedly used a beat he created for the famous club banger, ‘Dundaing’ featuring King Kaka and Kristoff.
