Naira Marley’s new signee Lyta has been accused of music video plagiarism by South Korean K-pop fans.

K-pop fans took to social media to expose the obvious similarities between Nigerian singer’s new video for the song “Hold Me Down” And “Just Right” by South Korean K-pop boy band GOT7.

A Twitter fan page of GOT7 @GOT7_JYP noted the similarity between both videos. “Please take legal action on this. We do not accept plagiarism”, they tweeted and tagged the boy band official Twitter account.

Along with their tweet, the fan page shared a video in which both music videos were placed together.

Watch here:

So far, Lyta’s ‘Hold me Down’ music video has gained 464K views, 8.2k likes, 116K dislikes on Youtube.

Naira Marley has since come forward to say the video was inspired by the popular GOT7 video but K-Pop fans are not having it. They are reporting the video for plagiarism and demanding Youtube takes it down.

Who do you think is to blame for this? The video director? Lyta? Or his management as a whole?

In my opinion, I’d blame the video director because he was solely responsible for creating the video. Lyta could have been on set without an inkling what the video would look like after shooting. Only the video director has the picture in his mind.
