Phyno Shows Proof That Writer Decarlo Gave Him Permission To Release “I’m a Fan”

Phyno has responded to the claims made by Decarlo on Twitter yesterday, June 11, stating that Pia Mia’s “I’m a Fan” is the “authorized” version as he was the one that wrote the song, which on the flipside means Phyno stole “I’m a Fan” from him.

I wrote the original demo of I’m A Fan” and pitched it to various artists.

I worked with Pia Mia and Jeremih on the track. Their song is the only version authorized

This indirect accusation is not one Phyno is ready to shove down his throat, and while he has been keeping silent for so long, this is just that push he needed to speak out, so speak out he did. Phyno, who said this was going to be the last time he would be talking about the issue, did less talking but gave us more to conclude ourselves with screenshots of the chat he had with Decarlo where the deal of “I’m a Fan” was initiated.

According to the photos he shared, Decarlo had approached him for a music barter deal which Phyno had accepted without hesitation (the time shows there was no hesitation there), probably because it is a barter that is meant to favour both parties.

So according to the barter, Phyno was supposed to help Decarlo promote a song on his platform while Decarlo will produce “smash” for Phyno at no cost, as he has been “dying” to work with Ezege1. Fast track to November, Phyno released the song “I’m a Fan” in his Playmaker album and shared the good news with Decarlo who was also excited about it, at least he seems so from his chat.

With Phyno releasing this statement, he is making the world know that he had a chat with Decarlo who gave him full permission to make and release the song only to be shocked in May where an American artiste released the same song, replicating everything, from title, lyrics and the beat.

This subtle yet strong accusation is alarming to the singer, songwriter, and producer who in an interview with BeatFM expressed his shock, saying a statement from Pia Mia at the initial stage of the issue would’ve been appreciated, but since she has decided to not say anything, he has also been advised by his team to not say a word about it yet, even though he has tons of evidence to prove the song was not stolen by him.

Finally, Phyno mentioned that if he had indeed stolen the song, he would’ve been sued by now or the issue would’ve been raised at that moment, but since nothing of such happened, we’ll all have to wait till the issue is ripe enough to be officially narrated by the parties involved. For now, we know for a fact that Decarlo had given Phyno the right to use what he used and whatever issue they bring up, Phyno has revealed he has all the evidence to attack, defend and win the case… at least that’s the summary of his interview on the issue.
