But now the IPL 2020 is dealing with with one other obstacle. Indian rapper Krishna Kaul, aka KR$SNA, has alleged that the match anthem, Aayenge Hum Wapas, which was launched not too long ago, was copied from his 2017 album ‘Dekh Kaun Aaya Wapas.’
“Hey guys, @IPL has plagiarised my song “Dekh Kaun Aaya Waapas” and created “Aayenge Hum Wapas” as this years anthem without credit or consent. I request my fellow artists and friends on twitter to RT this tweet for awareness, they can not get away with this. @DisneyPlusHS,” Krishna wrote on his Twitter account.
The higher the setback 😷
The stronger the comeback 💪
We can sum it up in three phrases:
