Controversies

Stealing Song

Jah Master claimed the song Sombonyo was originally his. Speaking on ZiFM Stereo, Jah Master said:

The song, Sombonyo was originally my song. It was just taken and changed a little lines. It is because my marketing strategies were poor and someone just capitalised on that and recorded my song at a different studio.

In his response, Hwinza dismissed the claim and said Jah Master was trying to find an entry point into the industry through a fight.

He said:

I actually took time to write and compose that song. Jah Master is a person looking for a breakthrough and might have thought pulling a stunt like that would improve hype around him. If he really was the originator of the song, why did it blow or become popular after I sang it? Why is it no one knew of the song before I sang it?.
