Actress Fella Makafui is back in the Twitter trends, occupying the first position following the release of her single ‘Over’ – a song some have said is a subliminal shot at Sister Deborah.

The fast-tempo song comes few days after Sister Derby, ex-girlfriend of rapper Medikal who is now married to Fella Makafui, released a song titled ‘Sweet Ex’. Before the release of ‘Sweet Ex’, 35-year-old Derby had in a post sent best wishes to Medikal on his 26th birthday which fell on Sunday, April 5.
“Happy birthday my sweet ex,” the caption of an old photograph which captured Medikal planting a kiss on Derby’s cheek read.
In her ‘Over’ song which came along with an official music video, Fella Makafui first salutes her better half but ‘borrows’ a word from Derby as she says “shout outs to my sweet husband…”
Hearing the song for the first time, one would notice a striking resemblance to Shatta Wale’s ‘Freedom’ but moments after the song hit online, Sister Derby went into the archives and shared Bisa Kdei’s ‘Over’ song released in 2013 – appearing to suggest the hook, instrumentation as well as the title of Fella Makafui’s piece were ‘stolen’ hence, the actress-turned-singer is a copycat.
But there is a twist to the story! Music enthusiasts and tweeps are not only subjecting Fella Makafui’s song to scrutiny – there is a list of ‘terrible’ musicians being compiled in the wake of the release of ‘Over’.
Recall actress Emelia Brobbey was trolled months ago when she released her debut ‘Fa Me Ko’ and even though her subsequent release ‘Odo Electric’ was said to be better than the previous, the mark remains indelible.
Patapaa may have cemented his name in Ghana’s music industry with his ever popular ‘One Corner’ song and his captivating stage performances but finds himself in the list, likewise Sister Derby known for her single ‘Kakalika Love’.
Social media is buzzing and it is expected the controversy will linger considering how people are interested in the issue coupled with the quest to ease boredom in this lockdown period.
