YouTube Pulls Down Ndovu Ni Kuu
Popular song Ndovu Ni Kuu by Krispah, Khaligraph Jones and Boutross has been pulled down from YouTube following a copyright claim. According to reports, the claim was filed by one Dexta Briyanka, an upcoming artist, who alleged that the trio sampled his beats and therefore infringed on his rights.
Furthermore, Dexta said that the song “promoted violence in Kenyatta University,” whose name is allegedly cryptically mentioned as KU in Ndovu Ni Kuu.
Krispah, with support from Khaligraph and Boutross have publicly responded and vowed to pursue legal redress. They will be required to formally issue a counter claim to YouTube in 30 days or lose rights to the hit song, which boasts 3.5 million views since its release in May.
