Phyno/Pia Mia Song Controversy: 'Phyno’s Version Is Unauthorized' - De Carlo
“Pia Mia’s version of ‘I’m a fan’ song is only version authorized” songwriter DeCarlo has said.
The original songwriter of the controversial song ‘I am a fan’ is on the side of Pia Mia and not Phyno.
Latest information on the controversial ‘I’m a fan’ single which was first released by Nigerian rapper, Phyno and later by US singer Pia Mia may be reaching a conclusion.
Phyno released a version of the song on his sophomore album “The Playmaker” in 2016, while US singer Pia Mia released a similar version of the record on May 26, 2017, in collaboration with R&B singer Jeremih.
Upon the release of her version, Nigerians assumed that the singer illegally recreated Phyno’s record.
DeCarlo however confirmed via his official Twitter account (@iAMDECARLO), that the only ‘authorised version’ is Pia Mia’s.
