“I am too big for that, my spirit and soul wouldn’t permit me to do that. To take someone’s song and redo is below my standard.

I have so many songs to my credit, is it now that I will listen to someone’s song to write mine? If I want to steal someone’s song I would have stolen my grandfather’s.

Everyone has a problem and I have decided to use mine as a song, that doesn’t mean I have stolen anyone’s music. I mean anyone at all can have this concept. I don’t know anyone called K. Bibini, I don’t know where he is from and I have never heard his song”, he stated.
