There are startling similarities between IPL 2020's anthem 'Aaenge Hum Vapas' and Krsna's track 'Dekh Kaun Aaya Waapas'
Kaul alleged that the track has been used without his consent
Krishna Kaul aka ‘KR$NA’, a renowned rap artist from New Delhi, has levelled accusations against the Indian Premier League (IPL) regarding the anthem for the IPL 2020.
IPL’s social media handle released a promotional video for the upcoming tournament, with the background track ‘Aaenge Hum Vapas’.
The track encapsulates the feeling of uplifting spirits for the Indian masses during a tumultuous period in the history of mankind.
The Pranav Ajayrao Malpe-composed track also emphasizes on the relentless efforts of thousands of personnel involved for the smooth conduct of the tournament.
IPL 2020 will provide some sort of entertainment and relief to the millions affected due to the global pandemic situation.
IPL 2020 anthem allegedly plagiarized from ‘Dekh Kaun Aya Waapas’
Earlier, the tournament was scheduled to be held in India in between the months of March and May. Due to the pandemic, and growing cases of coronavirus cases in India, the tournament has been shifted to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
However, ‘KR$NA’ has levelled allegations that the song is copied from his track ‘Dekh Kaun Aaya Waapas’, without his consent, credits or prior intimation.
The greater the setback 😷
The stronger the comeback 💪
