A Filipino rapper now in hot water against BTS ARMY.
Ex-Battalion member Skusta Clee got called out by the fans of BTS for allegedly plagiarizing “Ddaeng”, a BTS’ 2018 Festa celebration track by RM, Suga, and J-Hope.
The Filipino rapper released a track titled “DEYM” in collaboration with Flow G for his clothing line advertisement.
Most of the BTS fans found similarities of the two tracks that lead to accusation of plagiarizing the Korean group’s song.
One netizen encouraged other fellow BTS fans to report the “DEYM” video on YouTube and send an email to Big Hit Entertainment.
On Twitter, some netizens posted screenshots of Skusta Clee’s alleged response about the issue last Sunday, October 4.
“Hindi naman namin ginaya yon OY hiniram lang namin yun beat at vibe.”
(We didn’t copy it, we just borrowed the beat and vibe).
After the tweet, Skusta Clee has set his Twitter account to private and deactivated his Facebook. The issue has been picked up by the local news media in South Korea.
