Octopizzo Denies Stealing ‘BlackStar’ Song

April 23, 2014

octoRapper Octopizzo has been accused of plagiarism. Producer Nomiz King of Kingdom Records alleges Octo stole from him the idea for his hit single, BlackStar. 

“Mid-last year, I sent Octopizzo the beats to the now BlackStar song after agreeing that we would record it together. He was to record his verse, but he told me, he was busy with shows so I waited. Only for the song to be released before we got to work together,” revealed Nomiz to The Star.

Nomiz says he tried to contact the Namba Nane rapper via Facebook to try and work out a deal but nothing came out of it. A betrayed Nomiz, left Octopizzo a parting shot and expressed his pain for what Octo had allegedly done.

“You might have stolen my song, but you can’t steal my talent. It hurt, but I’m over it. This is just one of the many ideas in my head plus every time I hear that song, I’ll know that my idea is a big hit. Make the most out of it, cause that’s all you’re ever going to get from me,” he said.

Reacting to these claims, Octopizzo brushed them off and claimed he did not know Nomiz.

“People got issues. I’ve never heard a name like that, never talked to person like that. And I don’t do hip hop collabos. I have never done one so what will I be doing talking to him. I do collabos with people who do different genres of music from mine,” said Octo, adding, “My producer is from New York. I have only two songs produced by a Kenyan producer since I started doing music. I don’t produce beats in Kenya, so tell him to look for a different way of publicising his a**.”
