Right after Sarkodie released “Trumpet” hiphop song which features rappers like Strongman, Teephlow, Medikal, Donzy, Pappy Kojo and Koo Ntakra, beat police announced that beat for the song was stolen.
Investigations suggested that Def Clef, producer for the “Trumpet” song picked the beat from international music producer Superstar O and made it his own without giving credit to the original beatmaker. This act was strongly spoken against but it does not just end there.
Teephlow, one of the rappers on the song is afraid to use any of the several instrumentals Def Clef has sent him because it might be a stolen product. Speaking to MzGee on Showbiz This Week entertainment show, the alumnus of KNUST disclosed that he was disappointed when Zionfelix.net reported months back that instrumental for the “Trumpet” song is originally owned by Superstar O but not Def Clef as he made them believe.
“Personally I felt disappointed. Def Clef has sent a couple of beats and up till now I haven’t been able to use them because I don’t know whether they are legitimately his or they are for someone else so it has affected me in a way.
After knowing this, I just can’t use anything he sends me because someone can sue me.” Teephlow told MzGee on HItz FM.
