Music duo, Bradez made up of Stone (Da Flowking) and Kunta Kinte have been accused by Blinkz Entertainment, an entertainment outfit, of stealing the beat for their new single E Go Be.

That outfit’s management is alleging that they own the rights to the beat which happens to be the beat of a song, Kolo by Yung Harry featuring Tazmania and Tiger, all under the Blinkz Entertainment label released earlier this year.

Giving their side of the story, Stone a member of the duo in an interview with Friday said the beat to the song was given to them about three months ago by an engineer, Black Tiger of KSA Studios with its office near the KNUST campus in Kumasi.

He added that, they (Bradez) liked the beat and subsequently wrote and recorded a song, E Go Be out of it but just when they were about to release the song, they were shocked to hear on some radio stations that they had stolen the beat to the song.

They however released the song late October but had to take it back to the studio for remixing as certain aspects of the song did not meet the requirements.

Stone said the accusations “are very unnecessary” and that the so called accusers should rather point accusing fingers at the engineer who gave them the beat since they don’t make them.

“The type of songs that we do does not demand controversy...They (accusers) are only trying to get popular,” he stressed.

The song, E Go Be, he explained is an inspirational song aimed at giving encouragement to the downhearted.

Stone further said they have so many songs they have not recorded yet and therefore do not see the need to steal some one’s song.

“We have over one million tracks we have not recorded yet...we cannot steal someone’s track,” he said.

Stone also revealed that the duo have started their Bradez Party Hard Tour and for the past three months, they have toured Obuasi, Konongo, Mampong and Cape Coast.

The tour he explained is aimed at offering the group an opportunity to meet up with their fans and interact with them and also raise funds for their Bradez Foundation aimed at helping students merge their talents and education.

The next stop of the tour will be Kumasi and not only will they perform there, they will hold a talent competition to unearth the next king of the mic among Senior High Schools in Kumasi.
