The leaked edition of “Loodi” surprisingly provided Kartel’s original verses, which were modified and covered by Shenseea for their collaboration.
The cryptic caption wrote, “My song was never a collaboration!”
Since news emerged that the award-winning single, Loodi, which catapulted Shenseea on to the music scene, was not an actual collaboration, Shenseea and her management team have been coming under heavy attack from the public.
Enraged social media users immediately showered fast-rising dancehall star with horrid comments while accusing Shenseea and her manager, Romeich Major, of stealing Kartel’s song and passing it off as their own.
Of course, “Loodi,” as music fans know it, was released as a collaboration with on-the-rise Shenseea and incarcerated Vybz Kartel.
However, the song, which is widely regarded as the milestone that gave Shenseea her limelight in the music business, has now stirred a bizarre controversy for the Jamaican female artist.
According to several websites, for months now, fans of Vybz Kartel have been complaining that Shenseea is not giving Vybz Kartel enough credit for single-handedly launching her Dancehall career.
Nonetheless, on Tuesday, Shenseea and Romeich broke their silence with Onstage TV regarding the issue while distancing themselves from the drama and making Elvis Redwood, CEO of So Unique Records their scapegoat.
However, Romeich stated that he nor Shenseea have never failed to give Vybz Kartel credit for the song.
Subsequently, the controversial single was removed on Wednesday after racking up over 400,000 views on Youtube since its release on Monday.
Later that day, Jamaican producer Elvis Redwood opened up about the topic in a lengthy video, which was uploaded to his YouTube channel.
“This interview is 27:40 long, please don’t splice watch it to the end,” Elvis captioned the video.
