Users of social news aggregation and discussion website Reddit called out Andrew E. for allegedly plagiarizing his debut hit, “Humanap Ka Ng Panget” which was released back in 1990.
In the said thread, one Reddit user shared the music video of American hip-hop group Cash Money & Marvelous' 1988 song “Find An Ugly Woman” and pointed out the alleged similarities to the local rap legend's hit song.
A Redditor stated “I don't think he meant "Humanap Ka Ng Panget" as a parody. He claimed that he wrote it while at a bus." But according to the legendary rapper, he wrote his debut album (from which the track is included) while hiding from the authorities after being accused of his involvement in a hit-and-run incident in 1990. Here's a snippet of his MYX Live! interview:
