Literally BCCI had five months extra to make a theme song for IPL 2020 and even then they felt the need to copy one? Shame Shame.
For the news, recently, a rapped named Krishna Kaul alleged that the IPL has plagiarised his 2017 song “Dekh Kaun Aaya Waapas” to create “Aayenge Hum Wapas”.
The artist said that he was neither approached to seek consent to use the song and nor was he given any credit for the anthem. “I request my fellow artists and friends on twitter to RT this tweet for awareness, they can not get away with this,” he wrote in a tweet.
Later in a tweet, he informed that he had received a response from the “Music Composer’s Association of India” stating that the plagiarisation of Hip Hop song is “permissible” (allowed) just because ‘they all sound the same’.
As all this fuss continues, some people took on Twitter to call the IPL for its cheap thrills while others are busy making memes about it.
BCCI, you had one job.
