Last week news broke that Pia Mia, an American artist may have ‘stolen’, “I’m a fan”, a song sang by Nigerian musician, Phyno.
As the drama continues to unfold, here are three important things to note:
There are two producers who worked on “I’m A Fan”
The fan theories and speculations may continue to rave across the internet but contrary to early reports by Pulse.ng’s music pundit Joey Akan, Remo The Hitmaker did not produce “I’m A Fan”. According to Native, “I’m A Fan” was produced by rapper and producer, Yung Berg under the producer name Hitmaka. There’s also mention of Smash Davids, who co-produced the base instrumentation for “I’m A Fan”.
It’s still unclear who actually wrote the song, but there is a clue
Jeremih and DeCarlo are both songwriters who have worked together in the past. In fact both DeCarlo and Jeremih released a collaboration last year.
DeCarlo is the only connection between Phyno and Pia Mia
While it’s still impossible to ascertain who exactly wrote the words for “I’m A Fan”, as we mentioned in our last update on this story, DeCarlo, a Brazilian born American songwriter who featured on Phyno’s earlier released version of “I’m A Fan” is the only actual link to Pia Mia.
