TRINIDADIAN SONGWRITER Jason ‘Shaft’ Bishop did nothing wrong – legally – when a song he wrote ended up being recorded by two Barbadian artistes two years apart.

In 2015, Denise DeeVine Phillips released We De Same, while on Monday, Nikita’s 2017 Crop Over release called Same Way hit the airwaves, which ignited controversy.

The song has the same lyrics, albeit a different melody.

DeeVine, who is based in England, told the DAILY NATION yesterday that she felt hurt, embarrassed and frustrated over the whole affair. However, Shaft maintained he controlled the publishing rights to the song. (NS)
