Jacqueline Fernandez & Badshah’s ‘Genda Phool’ in trouble: Plagiarism Allegations



Jacqueline Fernandez & Badshah's 'Genda Phool' in trouble: Plagiarism Allegations

Jacqueline Fernandez starer Badshah’s track Genda Phool has reportedly landed in a copyright mess because of the Bengali lines in the track are reportedly from a Bengali folk song written by Ratan Kahar. The Genda Phool song includes lyrics, “Borlok er Bitilo, lomba lomba chul…lal genda phool” from the original folk song Borloker Bitilo. This folk song was originally written by Ratan Kahar, who did not receive due credit for the Genda Phool song. The song also has Bengali folk music and urban music. Although this song is being loved by fans, this copyright issue could be troublesome for the music producers.

According to a media portal’s report, Arghya Bose, a Doctoral researcher in France, wrote to West Bengal CM Mamta Banerjee to look into this plagiarism issue.

Amidst the tense coronavirus induced lockdown, singer/rapper Badshah dropped a brand new track titled Genda Phool. This new track features none other than Jacqueline Fernandez in a Bengali avatar. The music video also includes Bengali folk music along with some new urban tunes and sounds.

Arghya Bose wrote that in the capacity of a common but responsible citizen of Bengal, he feels obliged and responsible to bring to Madam CM’s notice the exploitation of the poor artist of the state of West Bengal at this level by world-renowned artists. With his initiative, Arghya hopes that Mr. Kahar gets his due credit and material remuneration for his contribution to the song. He further explained and appreciated the West Bengal Government for their respect towards the culture and diversity of Bengal.

Norwegian internet sensation Boy Pablo has released a pair of new songs called ‘Hey Girl’ and ‘I Just Wanna Go Home’ – listen to them below.

Announced last week, ‘Hey Girl’ arrived after Pablo hosted an online listening party for the new single earlier tonight (May 28).

“damn it’s really out now,” Pablo said of the new song on Twitter.

The singer-songwriter shared another new song called ‘I Just Wanna Go Home’, featuring guest vocals from Andrea.

Listen to both of the new songs below:

Whether ‘Hey Girl’ or ‘I Just Wanna Go Home’ will land on a full-length project is not yet known. Boy Pablo’s last project was 2018’s ‘Soy Pablo’ EP.


Last month, Boy Pablo shared a cover of Arctic Monkeys song ‘Piledriver Waltz’ that he performed for the Verftet Online Music Festival.

The Norwegian internet sensation joined a lineup that included the likes of Aurora, Enslaved and Datarock.

Armed with an acoustic guitar and donning socks and sandals, Pablo offered up a cover of ‘Piledriver Waltz’, taken from Arctic Monkeys’ 2011 album ‘Suck It And See’, which he performed in front of a green screen that displayed a family deer wandering in the snow.

Gang Of Four to release guitarist Andy Gill’s final recordings




Andy Gill

Gang Of Four have announced that they will release the final recordings of late guitarist Andy Gill.

Gill, who was a founding member of the legendary post-punk band, died in February following a short respiratory illness.

The news was announced in a statement posted on the band’s official Twitter account. “This is so hard for us to write, but our great friend and Supreme Leader has died today,” the statement began.

It continued: “Andy’s final tour in November was the only way he was ever really going to bow out; with a Stratocaster around his neck, screaming with feedback and deafening the front row.”

Today (May 28), the remaining members of the band, along with Gill’s widow, the author and Women’s Equality party co-founder Catherine Mayer, have announced a new EP that features the guitarist’s final recordings.

Titled the ‘Anti Hero EP’, all proceeds from it will benefit Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS foundation trust, to “recognise, celebrate and support” those who cared for Gill during his hospitalisation.

Speaking to The Guardian, Mayer said that her late husband was “working on this music and overseeing mixes from his hospital bed until literally the last day when they put him under.”

Mayer said that she and the rest of the band named the EP to recognise Gill’s “very healthy scepticism of the lauding of so-called great men.”

“So many – mainly men I’m afraid – seem susceptible to the idea that if you behave and dress a bit badly and break the rules, it makes you a genius,” she explained. “Andy talked about how it was becoming impossible for such populist figures to not intrude into his lyrics. He’d look at Trump’s tweets and go, ‘There’s a Gang of Four lyric right there.’”

The ‘Anti Hero EP’, which will feature art work by Shepard Fairey, the man who created Barack Obama’s Hope poster, will be released on July 17.

In February, Gang Of Four shared new song ‘The Dying Rays (2020)’, which later appeared on the band’s most recent release, ‘This Heaven Gives Me Migrane’ EP.
