Following the release of JAY-Z‘s album “4:44” veteran Nigerian rapper Modenine a few days ago reacted to one of the tracks “The Story of O.J”.

According to the Nigerian rapper the song bears similarities to his 2008 track “My Skin Is Black“.

He put up a video where he was listening to his own version, reminding his fans of the song.

However, certain reports in the media claimed he was calling out JAY-Z for stealing his song and he in turn clarified that via another video on his Instagram page.

The rapper says he never accused JAY-Z of stealing his song and actually loves JAY-Z’s version. 

He explained that both songs sampled Nina Simone‘s 1985 song “Four Women“.
