A-Reece releases statement calling “A Sotho Man With Some Power” album fake.
Mzansi rapper, A-Reece is pissed, and he has very good reason to be. The rapper who has been on the move all year dropping new music and preparing to deliver even more has recently become the victim of a fake album drop.
If you’ve seen a certain album on Apple Music titled “A Sotho Man With Some Power”, then you must know it isn’t his. The rapper and his legal team released a statement about it yesterday denouncing the originality of the album and saying it is infringing on his copyright.
They also revealed that the album is an illegal duplication of previously released material by the rapper. The statement also insinuated that whoever released the album was trying to cause a professional rift between the rapper and Nasty C. They also revealed that steps are being taken to bring the perpetrators to task and urged fans to refrain from downloading it.
A-reece shared the statement on his twitter page and the statement reads:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
COPYRIGHT INFRIRINGEMENT: A SOTHO MAN WITH SOME POWER
Johannesburg (April 17, 2020), it is with great annoyance and disappointment that we have come to learn of an album released by an entity only known to us currently as “2018 Rubber Band Gang” under the name of rapper Lehlogonolo Mataboge, professionally named A-Reece.
Not only does this album infringe on A-Reece’s copyright by what we believe to be illegal duplication of previously released music, but it has also been maliciously and intentionally titled to create a professional rift with colleagues in the industry.
A-Reece wishes to categorically denounce the album “A Sotho Man With Some Power” as a fake body of work which could only have been released as a result of cowardice and opportunism.
We have reached out to Apple music and our distributors to ensure that the project is taken down as a matter of urgency.
We will also take all possible steps to ensure that the perpetrators of this unspeakable abomination are brought to task.
In the interim, A-Reece requests all his fans and the public to refrain from downloading or entertaining the album in question as it lacks legitimacy.
