Tanzanian Singer, Zuchu Reacts To Claims That She Stole Tanasha Donna’s Lyrics For Their ‘Cheche’ Jam

WCB signee, Zuchu has come out to respond to claims that she stole Tanasha Donna’s lyrics for her song Cheche that features Diamond Platnumz.

In an interview from a Tanzanian publication, Zuchu expressed utter surprise that there were even claims doing rounds about her copypasting Diamond’s Kenyan baby mama’s lyrics.

She revealed that the first time she heard about the reports, she was very busy at the time working on the song. Having already released Cheche’s audio and now shooting it’s video.


Zuchu comes clean

So the next day just after Cheche’s video had premiered, one journalist asked the Bongo singer why she had stolen Tanasha’s lyrics. But Zuchu could not understand what kind of question that is.

According to her, she was the one who had scripted every bit of that song, thought about it for days before writing the final script. So Zuchu listened to Tanasha’s track Ride that features Khaligraph but could not find any similarities. Until she realized it was the Spanish bit.

Zuchu explained that before even writing the song lyrics, she was given beats by her producer and asked to figure out what to sing to. And immediately she figured the line Yo te quiero would go well with the beats.

Cheche is not something I copied from anyone. I wrote it all from scratch I swear! I don’t know Tanasha’s manager, I have never seen him. But I can only leave it all to God,” clarified Zuchu.

The Wasafi singer revealed she had gotten tired of hearing everyday someone coming out to claim rights to Cheche. And has now decided to leave it up to God.


Zuchu’s response comes barely a week after Tanasha and her manager, Jamal Gaddafi went online to call out her baby daddy and the signee for stealing lyrics off her Donatella EP album.
