Major Setback.

The award comes a day after their new song ‘Thao’ featuring boondocks gang, was pulled down from YouTube due to copyright claims.

The video was pulled down after a company called De Gigz Films launched complaints about the video for using their footage without permission.

If you had watched the “Thao” video you will realize that there was a drone shot at the beginning of the video, which apparently was stolen from a film owned by DeGigz Films.

This is not Ehtic’s first video to be pulled down from YouTube due to Copyright claims. In August their song “Figa” mysteriously disappeared from YouTube.

It later turned out that, Figa is a copy and paste of the song Cono by Puri ft Jhorrmountain and Adje that was officially uploaded on YouTube, December 9, 2017. The resemblance between the two songs is what caused its deletion from all streaming platforms.

Here are some of their comments
