Music wars never seem to end in this country of ours and when King Saha came out and claimed to have been the one who wrote Dr. Jose Chameleone’s Valu Valu and Badilisha recently, we knew we were in for another of such wars.

According to King Saha who has been to Coke Studio this year, he is the one who penned the two popular songs. Chameleone has however come out to reveal that this is all bullocks.

Here is what Chameleone said about the entire saga when contacted; “Those young people have things that are disturbing them. Valu Valu is not a song for simple minded people. I don’t want to fight with anyone but he should stop claiming music that is not his. I went to studio and created the entire song, he doesn’t have a genius mind to create the work I create. He is lying. Let him write for someone else and we see. He should stop using the media to sell his lies.”

Chameleone then referred all those in doubt to his producer PaddyMan who also confirmed that the songs are indeed his.

“We worked on Valu Valu in 2012. This was after I started my studio audio one in 2011 and I called Chameleone to come and support me. He is a freestyler. He didn’t come with any demo, or book with the song. He got everything from his head as we were recording,” Paddy of Audio 1 revealed.

It should however be noted that some musicians don’t respect songwriters and when the song becomes a hit, they claim it all and leave the artiste with nothing.

We will keep you posted.
