Three days ago, Yverry released a song titled “Naremewe Wowe” which sounds, in name to the lyrics, like that of Alyn Sano’s released in January 2018, drawing controversy between the musicians.

In IGIHE’s interview with Yverry, he says that he started working on the song in 2017, working with Alyn Sano’s brother named Sano who is a music producer.

Yverry did not like the quality of Sano’s version of the song. He says that he left the project to work on another, a song named “Mbona Dukundana” with Ishimwe Clement, which was released.

Later, he reworked “Naremewe Wowe” with Bob Pro. That time, he says, Bob Pro’s version failed to satisfy his likes, making him take it to Pastor P, who produced one that met his satisfaction.

After producing this new version, Yverry says that he was astonished at finding Alyn Sano’s song out. This made both the musicians enter into discussion, but Alyn Sano informed him that the song was hers and that she registered with Rwanda Development Board (RDB).

Yverry says that he was saddened by the news, which brewed hate between them. To resolve the conflict, the duo sought redress and mediation through the associations of musicians and producers.

He says that each one of them was given 50% rights over the song, the reason he released his version.

Alyn Sano dismisses the contention that each one of the musicians was given 50% of the rights to the song.

She said, “We met. Yes, that meeting really took place, but he [Yverry] should not lie. If he is speaking the truth, he should show documents justifying what he says. For me, I have documents; the song is mine a hundred percent.”

Alyn Sano claims her brother had composed the song for Yverry but when they fell out he [Yverry] He passed it over to her.

Alyn Sano was asked if she plans to file a lawsuit against Yverry and said; “For me, I make music. I cannot manage taking someone I consider as my big brother to court. Instead, I must give my fans more music.”

When asked how he can deal with it in case Alyn Sano takes him to court, Yverry said; “For me, what matters is that I’m happy, all else means nothing to me.”

On making a clip video for the song, Yverry said that he did not think about it, but he might do it in case it is decided by his team.

The skirmishing comes at a time when Yverry has announced his first album launch on February 14th, 2020, and Alyn Sano having a new song out called “None”.
