Did Koffi Olomide "steal" from Cameroonian artist Liinx?

Kinnaka's Blog came across Koffi Olomide’s new video for his song ”Frère de Terre” released on the 24 June 2016 on his Youtube channel (KOFFI 13EME APOTRE). Watching the video, It felt like a déjà-vu. Yes, ofcourse. On the 31 October 2015 Liinx released his debut single ”Ashia” Featuring Mister Elad on their youtube channel (MudHouseEnt Channel). A tribute song that marked many becuase of its deepness and melancholy. In the video, the major scene where Liinx is seating on the bed with pictures of fallen African heroes hanging on the walls of the room in my opinion is a replica of what you see in Koffi’s video. Could this mean that even the most creative african music genuuises are capable of copying creative concepts? However, I will let KB readers watch the two videos and judge for themselves...

  6. This is so crazy to think Mopao copied that from Liinx. That's a very common style of making videos about loved lost ones. So many artists did that already including Sean Paul.
    Abeg go find place sleep if u got nothing to say.
