K.O Gets Called Out For Allegedly Stealing “Sete”
K.O Gets Called Out For Allegedly Stealing “Sete”: South African singer and songwriter, K.O has been called for allegedly stealing hit single tagged “Sete”.
The news started making the rounds recently that K.O actually “stole” the song from another music artist by the name Reefer.
A Twitter user named Tempy Pusha shared a screenshot of Reefer’s song and captioned with, “SETE sounds exactly the same as this joint.”
This alone caused a ruckus online, causing a lot of people to listen to both songs and verify that they truly sound alike.
While some came to defend the South African rapper, others dragged him for plagiarism. Some others simply joyed away at the news.
It was also revealed that an artist by the name Mizo Phyll initiated the sound which was allegedly sampled by K.O and Reefer. No one knows if K.O actually stole the song from Reefer or bought it.
“If there are no lyrics and flow similarities, the person to blame is the producer. There is an artist called Mizo Phyll who first used this beat before Reeder Tym and KO,” Johnny Malepa wrote.

This Sete situation isn’t what y’all guys make it out to be. The Producer Callie Majik drop his beats on YouTube and Both KO and Reefer Tym used the beat issued on YT but KO reached out to the producer and subsequently credited him on SETE. I don’t know about the other dude.
