BellaNaija - "I never said JAY-Z stole my song" - Modenine reacts to reports of him calling out JAY-Z

Following the release of JAY-Z‘s album “4:44” veteran Nigerian rapper Modenine a few days ago reacted to one of the tracks “The Story of O.J” which bears similarities to his (Modenine’s) 2008 track “My Skin Is Black“.

He put up a video vibing to his own version, reminding his fans of the song:

However, certain reports in the media claimed he was calling out JAY-Z for stealing his song and he in turn clarified that via another video on his Instagram page.

The rapper stated that he did not accuse JAY-Z of stealing his song and he actually loves JAY-Z’s version. He explained that both songs sampled Nina Simone‘s 1985 song “Four Women“.
