Sheng masters Mbogi Genje seem to have attracted some serious haters from their fast-rising success in the music industry.
The group compromised of Guzman, Militan, and Smaddy Tingz are on the receiving end of plagiarism allegations after a group from the Soweto slums publicly exposed them on social media.
According to a video circulating on Instagram, the Soweto-based group said Mbogi Genje took advantage of their talent and left them in the cold after stealing their lyrics. Finally, the trio has put their feet down and broke their silence on the issue by denying the allegations.
Mbogi Genje denied any association with the angry group and referred to them as loners who are out to clout chase by tarnishing their name and credibility as creatives.
“We have said time and time again that we have no affiliations with any gang groups. We indeed know them since we are in the same hood, but we have had no other business associations with them,” they said. Mbogi Genje now accuses the group of spreading malicious rumors to tarnish their name.
They further explained they are familiar with the young men as they hail from the same area and did not discuss business with them at any point of their career.
The Sheng Masters concluded by urging the youth to quench off the ‘ghetto mentality’ where their peers are not happy when a person gets their big break in whatever field they are pursuing.
“It would be important to kill this ghetto mentality where the youth are not happy when their peers make it. Tuinuane, hii ng’ombe ni kubwa sana Mbogi haiwezi maliza,” they pleaded.
