Nigerian singer Flavour

According to the Ghanaians, Flavour's new single Kwarikwa on which he featured Fally Ipupa, was a 'carbon copy' of their Kotosa song which they released in 2008. They are accusing the Nigerian singer of stealing the chorus, rhythm, tempo and the opening saxophone they used on their song, without consulting with them for permission, being the owners of the original song.

'This does not come as a surprise to me as I already knew point blank that the material put out by Flavour was an outright plagiarized product of Kotosa. I mean I heard what seemed like Kotosa blasting from the huge speakers in a CD vendor's shop when Iwas driving to a friend's home when I visited Nigeria last two months. I was happy and surprised that Kotosa had finally made its way to Nigeria aftermaking hits in Ghana only to hear Flavour's signatured hi-life voice on the beat! I was disappointed to say the least. I shook my head as I passed by' said the manager of the defunct group.

Meanwhile, Flavour's manager, Benjamin, while speaking to NET, refused to disclose any information from their quarters, 'I'm not saying anything about it yet' he told NET.

Flavour with real names, Chinedu Okoli started singing at a young age and is currently signed to 2nite Entertainment where he released his second album, Uplifted in 2010
