Mzansi proves to everyone that DJ Lag’s song thief is Will.i.am which I deeply apologize for.

South Africans gave aiming to the word UBUNTU once they stood for one among their own, DJ Lag after he got ripped off by an American DJ.

Mzansi proves to everyone that DJ Lag's song thief is Will.i.am which I deeply apologize for.

The Durban Gqom DJ’s 2016 song Ice Drop got stolen by American DJ and radio presenter DJ Megan Ryte, who made a remake and named it Culture.

Unbeknownst to DJ Lag, his beats and production got plagiarized without his consent and has taken action. After Mzansi noticed the similarities between the 2 songs, they were livid which resulted in Megan Ryte deleting the song from YouTube.

At first, she turned off her comments section on Instagram where she shared a snippet from her video, she then turned off the comments on her YouTube where she posted the complete video. The support Mzansi has shown to DJ Lag deserves an ovation. Megan’s video got over 15 000 dislikes on YouTube just a couple of hours after it had been posted. Feeling the warmth, Megan removed the video from her YouTube.

In the song Culture, Megan features music icon Will.i.am and ASAP Ferg. Will.i.am from the favored group Black Eyed Peas issued out an apology on Megan’s behalf, taking the blame for the “mishap” which occurred. In an IG video, Will.i.am apologized to both Megan and DJ Lag saying Megan isn’t guilty. He admitted that he was the one deserving of the hate because he got the credit information wrong.

“What’s up everybody, I’m here to clarify things between the song Culture and Drop ice by DJ Lag. First I would like to require the time to apologize to Megan Ryte from the rock bottom of my heart. Megan, I’m truly pitying putting you during this situation and that I want everyone to understand Megan doesn’t deserve the hate you’re throwing at her because Megan didn’t do anything wrong.”

“The person that’s guilty is me. When the song was turned in, I turned in the credit information to Megan, and that I obviously got the credit information wrong. once I realized I made an error I attempted to repair it which point in time it had been already too late, so I apologize to DJ Lag. DJ Lag you’re an awesome producer, you’ve got a tremendous future before you and I’m so pitying getting the knowledge wrong,” said Will.i.am.

DJ Lag thanked Mzansi for standing up for him, on his social media he wrote, “I’m absolutely aware that South Africa has my back. The people’s support has made this whole event manageable. I’m grateful to my people here reception and across the planet and to all or any the media who chose to hide the reality .”

However, he won’t accept the half-baked apology from Will.i.am saying he felt it had been directed at him.
