The inspiration for singer Makhadzi’s upcoming single Change Magiya is allegedly stolen. Scrafoc, a Malawian artist, is making a charge against her. He claims that Makhadzi used the lyrics from his song “Ma Gear.” His composition is already available on streaming platforms with a music video.
Makhadzi has unveiled a teaser for her new song, Change Magiya. She used a dance competition on TikTik to present the teaser. Many people rode the wave after her debut. Fans were dancing to her music all throughout Southern African nations.
People pleading with her to remove the music filled her comment section. Some assured her they would keep playing the song until it was certified platinum.
Similarities between the two songs
The melody of Scrafoc’s Ma Gear fuses amapiano with a deep house vibe. “Ku changer magiya,” is his chant. Magiciya magiciya magiciya “Change magiya, change magiya,” is repeated throughout the chorus of Makhadzi.
Hands off, Makhadzi.
For a variety of reasons, Twitter users are not pleased with Makhadzi’s charges. The phrase “changing the gears” has been used in South Africa as slang for many years. Tweeps claim that the beats aren’t even similar.
Makhadzi accused of stealing the Changer Magiya song concept from a Malawian artist
Makhadzi is not accused of stealing anything, according to his supporters and admirers of Mzansi pop culture. They claimed that her song brought a dated phrase back to life in the nation. Many claim that there are absolutely no similarities.
Tables turn for Scrafoc
Some Twitter users claim that Scrafoc is exploiting Makhadzi to gain influence because Makhadzi is well-known internationally. Some people have even claimed that Mzansi’s Virgo Deep house and amapiano sounds were stolen by Malawian musicians.
