Password had released his version in 2011 but was met with little reception. Hours after the release of Davido’s version, Twitter went abuzz with claims of the single ‘stealing’ the record after an anonymous Twitter account began sharing the links for Password’s version of the same song.
However, new reports have emerged that Davido paid the producer the sum of 500,000 naira for the new single.
Davido tweeted; Big ups 2 @iamshizzi and @iam_password for such a great combination of work for GOBE! More stuff 2 come HKN!
Password was also very co-operative as he also tweeted in support; The song Gobe was officially replaced by @iam_davido hu co-wrote on d new version and I @iam-password is very happy and satisfied.
HKN in-house producer also tweeted; Follow my gud friend @iam_password and thanx to him and d inspiration we all put into gobe! Cc”@iam_Davido.
