Davido Stole 'Pere' Beat From Me - Music Producer
A music producer is accusing Davido of jacking his beat to produce his latest single, 'Pere'.
‘Pere’, which also features Young Thug and Rae Sremmund, has been claimed by another producer named HOD.
The beat-maker says Davido jacked his production without credit and using it without compensation.
‘Pere’ was released under Sony Music Entertainment International Limited.
Its production is credited to DJ Mustard, a popular American record producer, songwriter and DJ from Los Angeles.
HOD claims he made the beat for singer Dammy Krane, a Davido Music Worldwide affiliate, and says the song was recorded in 2015.
“Only for me to press play on Davido’s new song last night and I hear the same fucking song Dammy Krane recorded with me in 2015! Why??” HOD wrote in a series of tweets, which he has since deleted.
“How long will upcoming producers be stepped upon? So because I am not known, you gave the song to Davido and my beat to DJ Mustard?
“I have well documented proof by the way. Shame on Sony for not being professional about this too. I’m sure they felt this was just another unknown African producer,” HOD wrote.
HOD who is also a recording artist, has produced records for other Nigerian stars including Olamide, Reekado Banks, Ayo Jay and BOJ, and claims he has proof, uploading his unfinished recording with Dammy Krane to Souncloud.
Dammy Krane, who was announced as part of Davido’s record label in 2016, was credited by Davido for co-writing the hook ‘Pere’. “Shoutout @dammy_krane !! Co wrote the hook on 'PERE' with me !!” Davido tweeted on July 28, 2017.
A source close to Davido , said ‘Pere’ beat was created by DJ Mustard, who used his earlier production from '2 On’, a 2014 hit record by Tinashe, featuring Schoolboy Q.
