Video streaming and sharing platform YouTube is usually very strict when it comes to issues of copyright claims. One of such strikes has hit Kenyan entertainment bigwig and Genge artiste Mejja in a major way after his recent song was pulled down from YouTube due to copyright issues.
The song titled 'Tabia za Wakenya' was reported to YouTube over copyright infringement by another artiste known on the platform by the name Bouja Bwoy. By the time it was being taken down it had already amassed nearly 2 million views in just a few weeks.
Mejja today took to his official Instagram page to air out his anger and frustration over this matter. In his post he talked about how speechless he was after listening to the song that made the claim. He went on further to state that from now going forward he is no longer going to be the good and humble guy who remains quiet at such moments.
Mejja was clearly annoyed as he had to wait for at least two weeks for YouTube to conduct their investigation. He also said that he will not give up or give in. Mejja believed that God is with him and therefore nothing will slow him down in his musical journey.
Fans will now have to wait and see the outcome. A two week period of lull for a musician can be a long time but Mejja has asked the fans to be patient as he tries to sort out the matter.
