If actually The song was bought from Password, It seems not to be a bad idea, There is no superman anywhere, I salute Davido's courage to buy intellectual properties, more than 60% of songs are being written by lyrics writers and some composed by composers.
Hours after the release Davido’s single, another version quite similar to the pop star’s surfaced online The same song by an upcoming singer-producer named Password apparently bears the same title ‘Gobe‘ and it was released a year ago.
Password (who gained little buzz after featuring on Darey’s ‘Style na style’ remix) had made online releasefor the same song in July 2011 but it seemed not to have garnered any buzz back then. Sources says Password who produced and wrote the first version of ‘Gobe’ allegedly sold the song to Davido for a sum of money possibly up to N500,000.
‘Dude sold the song to Davido. He produced and wrote it, all of a sudden they are saying Shizzi produced it‘, a studio rat and close friend to Password said in anonymity.
What however makes ‘Gobe’ peculiaris that it had been previously released as an official single.
Both parties have not been responsive to queries over the matterbut after numerous comments were made on music blogs and social networks Twitter and Facebook about the stunning similarities between the songs, Davido and Password are now very vocal on Twitter about the matter.
‘They noticed people had found out, it’s like Password didn’t tell Davido that he had released the song before he sold it‘.
Davido was smart enough play along. This afternoon, he tweeted; Big ups 2 @iamshizzi and @iam_password for such a great combination of work for GOBE! Morestuff 2 come HKN!
Password was also very co-operative as he also tweeted in support; The song Gobe was officially replaced by @iam_davido hu co-wrote on d new version and I @iam-password is very happy and satisfied.
HKN in-house producer also tweeted;Follow my gud friend @iam_password and thanx to him and d inspiration we all put into gobe! Cc”@iam_Davido.
