Holy Ten Accused Of Stealing Verses
Zimbabwean Hip Hop sensation Holy Ten is facing accusations of plagiarism as rapper Yung Hondo claims that the lyrics of Holy Ten’s song “We Don’t Do That Here” mirror those of his track “Bond.” The controversy was brought to light when Voltz JT shared a video on Instagram comparing the strikingly similar lyrics.
Holy Ten’s lyrics in question:
“I really have to make this clear to the women I have met this year. If you dare to call me bae then you gonna make things a bit weird.”
Yung Hondo’s original lyrics:
“I really have to make this clear to the women I have met this year. If you dare to call me bae then you gonna make things a bit weird. We don’t do that here.”
The incident has ignited a heated debate on social media, raising concerns about plagiarism within the music industry. Fans are now calling for a thorough examination of all Holy Ten’s songs to ensure originality.
In response to the accusations, Holy Ten defended himself, asserting that the lyrics in question were part of a freestyle session recorded in June 2020. He claimed that Yung Hondo had actually stolen his intellectual property.
“To the rapper turned blogger: I know that you’re so desperate to discredit me and that your career depends on my demise, but last night you celebrated for nothing.
“We don’t do that here was part of Live Session Episode 4 shot in June 2020. The episode never aired because we (BrandonSSKD and myself) recorded bad quality sound.
“Unfortunately, someone got to the files and made my freestyles theirs.
“Luckily I still have the files dating back to June 2020. I’m uploading them when you wake up (that’s if uchirara because godo nehuroyi it’s the same sin). I’ll also be out looking for “Yung Hondo” so he can explain himself.
“My intellectual property got stolen and local artists were celebrating,” reads Holy Ten’s post.
The unfolding saga has the music community and fans closely watching as both artists navigate through these serious allegations.
