The former WCB signee launched his album on March 14th, 2020, but was rocked with controversy after it turned our that he had sampled a number of tracks from existing songs.
For example, his song with Mr Blue titled Unanimaliza was originally done by Mr Blue back in the days. Another song was “Your Body” featuring Burna Boy, where he sampled the late Papa Wemba’s song Show me the way.
He also sampled Q-Chillah’s song dubbed Nikilala to create his own tune called “I miss You”.
Another sampled song is Die featuring Khaligraph Jones- its original was done by Wycleff Jean “Sweetest Girl” (Dollar Bill) ft. Akon, Lil Wayne and Niia back in 2009.
This is not the first time Harmonize’s songs are being pulled down from YouTube over copyright claims. In November last year, his song UNO got pulled down after Kenyan Producer Magix Enga accused the singer of copying hooks and beats used in his song with King Kaka titled Dundaing.
