Ghanaian born rapper Nyako Patterson, popularly known as Ikon, has made claims that, colleague musician Kweku Darlington stole his song.
According to sources, Kweku Darlington also claimed he posted the song on his status, which gave the opportunity Ikon to sample, which rapper Ikon disagrees with, saying rather Darlington sampled his song.

According to Ikon, either Kweku Darlington or his manager saw the song on blogger Kumikaa’s status and asked him not to release the song for a 2x bonus. Where he later called other bloggers to release his artiste Kweku Darlington’s song rather ahead.
