Nigeria's hip-hop star who has made a mark singing in indigenous Igbo language, Phyno is making the best out of a recent controversy surrounding a song he released in 2016. 

Some days ago, a songwriter, DeCarlo, announced that the only authentic version of the song, "I'm a fan," is the one released this year by American singer, Pia Mia.   The producer said he worked on the song with her. The implication is that if the allegation is proved correct, Phyno will be tried for breach of copyright or stealing someone's intellectual property because his version, though released earlier, has strong similarity with the one released by the US singer.

In a response so far hailed by his fans, Phyno published screenshot of his conversations with DeCarlo, which shows he properly secured the permission of the song writer to produce the song. The screenshot shows that Phyno had long ago informed DeCarlo of the production of the song, which attracted a congratulation from the song writer.

Phyno said he will not be speaking on the matter anymore.
