Kenyan music producer Magix Enga is at it yet again, this time, he has a bone to pick with American rapper Tekaski 6ix9ine.
Magix Enga who is popularly known as The Beat King filed a copyright infringement claim on YouTube which resulted in the taking down of American star’s latest music video ‘Gooba’.
In a recent social media post, he warned, “Don’t sample my beats. Biggest song delete by Magix Enga.”
However, 6ix9ine’s team filed a counter claim and hours later the music video was back streaming on YouTube, garnering over 200 million views.
Enga then revealed he was paid and will use the money to help the needy during this pandemic.
“About the story that is trending, y’all need to know that he did note sample my beats, he used just one of my sample kits. I have my own sample kits and I uploaded them six years ago. Only producers can understand this.
“‘So YouTube had to take that song down, and because I don’t want to fight I decided to put that song back on YouTube after receiving some cash and I want to give that money to those who can’t afford a meal today’ he wrote on Instagram.”
The American rapper took to his Instagram to gloat. He wrote, “I know ya dead mad right now.”
The video for ‘Gooba’ is 6ix9ine’s first post-prison song after he was arrested and charged for racketeering.
Critics have questioned Enga’s motives as the song has been online for almost a month before his copyright claim.
Also, this is not the first time Magix has been embroiled in controversy over music beats. In 2019, Enga went head to head with Bongo star Harmonize over the sampling of his beard from another song on his then hit ‘Uno’.
