Nigerian singer and music writer, Danlil has accused self-acclaimed African Dancehall king, Shatta Wale of stealing his song.
According to the artiste, Shatta stole the idea of his yet to be released Musa Mansa Money song with Jamaican dancehall sensation, Vybz Kartel. He also accused him of stealing the song cover art from him.

Never again will a release a song tittle in anticipation,last year November 2019 I recorded a song and titled it Mansa musa,I did a broadcast in anticipation and later did another broadcast that I was gonna release this song(Mansa musa) this 2020 which I was already getting ready to drop and to my greatest surprise now some artist in ghana is dropping this same song with same art work,if I choose to drop mine immediately after this I probably will look like a copy cat right,well thanks to any link that got this artist know about this song title because no musician in Africa ever dropped a song with this title,and I do not have this artist(Shatta wale) on my list,so anyone who got that licked to him Goodluck and I hope you get well paid 👌👌👍👍
In two separate posts, the Nigerian singer claimed that he did a song in November 2019 and decided to name it Mansa Musa. After the song was done, Danlil added that he made a broadcast on social media with the song title and cover art with the announcement that it will be released in 2020. But before he could release the song, Shatta Wale has popped up with his Mansa Musa Money which features Vybz Kartel.
Later, Danlil who is now describing Shatta Wale as a thief shared a photo of his own artwork which he claims to have got in November 2019. Interestingly, Danlil’s cover art and that for Shatta Wale’s song is almost the same.
