Harrysong who recently welcomed his twin babies by Abuja based girlfriend. The singer has reacted to allegations that he stole a picture of an adorable set of twins to announce the arrival of his new babies.
In his defense about allegedly stealing baby photos, Harrysong said,
“I’ve not seen the kids, I’ve been very very busy. They are not around yet, I just saw pictures, their mother has been sending me pictures and it’s been amazing.”
In a chat with PREMIUM TIMES on Tuesday, the singer said the news broke while he and his entire team were on the set of a video shoot with Emarshall at Maryland, Lagos.
He said, “To set the record straight, the Instagram account, perezandtarela was set up by my baby mama who is very reserved and media shy, despite being a successful business woman.
She created the account with the sole aim of catalogueing the growth and development of her lovely twins. However, the account which was meant to run privately and operated by one of her younger siblings who mistakenly posted internet photographs was blown open by me.
I was obviously overjoyed and reposted the first photos on my way from Port Harcourt. With every sense of humility, it was a huge and regrettable mistake.”
The photo of the babies which he shared on his Instagram page was traced to its original source – a nursing website in the United States that had absolutely nothing to do with the singer.
The development led to an outcry on social media with many users attacking the singer for his failed attempt to fool them that the images of the babies were his. They also accused him of intellectual theft.
Harrysong, is a Nigerian singer, songwriter and instrumentalist who rose to fame after his tribute song to Nelson Mandela won the “Most Downloaded Callertune Award” at The Headies 2013. He was born in Warri, Delta State, Nigeria to Ijaw parents but moved to Lagos in 2007 after spending some of his early life in Port Harcourt.
