LOOK: EX BATTALION Releases Official Statement Regarding "Hayaan Mo Sila" Copyright Issue!
Filipino rap group Ex Battalion released an official statement regarding the current copyright issue that their song “Hayaan Mo Sila” featuring O.C. Dawgs is facing.
Over a day ago, YouTube took down the song’s official music video due to the copyright claim of Beats by Diamond Style Productions. Some netizens speculate that the rap group allegedly stole the beats in Diamond Style’s “One Kiss”.
However, ExB explained that they did not steal anything from the said beat production group and they paid the beat before using it on their song.
On their statement, they explained “lumampas na kami sa limitasyon na binayaran namin sa gumawa ng beat dahil na siguro sa dami ng nakinig, naniwala, at tumangkilik sa kanta. Kaya humihingi muli ng karagdagang bayad ang gumawa. Sa madaling salita, hindi nawala ang “Hayaan Mo Sila” MV nang dahil sa mga pinaparatang n’yong pagnanakaw.”
