In a surprising move, Jah Signal’s hitsong ‘Sweetie’, has been removed from YouTube.

Jah Signal song which had already amassed over 6 million views was pulled down from YouTube due to a copyright infringement claim by Pastor Charles Charamba and Fishers of men.

According to source, Jah Signal hitsong ‘Sweetie’ was apparently a remix from Pastor Charamba’s gospel song ‘Kana Vanhu Vangu’

Gospel musician and clergyman Pastor Charles Charamba and Jah Signal copyright violation conundrum over the song Sweetie started way back in 2019.

Jah Signal revealed that Pastor Charles Charamba did not respond to him when he sought consent to record the rendition.

Regardless he went ahead and released the song without Pastor Charamba’s approval. Pastor Charamba went on to lay a copyright violation claim against Jah Signal.

“Pastor Charamba is an icon and I’m a great fan of his music, that is why I did the song, but when he heard the song he was not impressed at all,” said Jah Signal.

Charles Charamba was not impressed with Jah Signal over the later ‘s rendition of his song ‘Kana Vanhu Vangu’ popularly known as Stonyeni because of the catchy punchline in 2019.

Speaking out in an exclusive interview, after the song was released, Pastor Charamba said the lyrical content in Jah Signal’s song ‘Sweetie’ was blasphemous.

He revealed that he discouraged Jah Signal from recording the song after they texted him seeking approval.

“ I never spoke to him after release. They texted me seeking consent and I advised them not to go ahead after sampling the lyrics. I discouraged them to do so not just on the basis that it was my melody but mostly because I sensed danger. To me the rendition is not ordinary joke or parody but blasphemy ,” he said.

He said as an elder it is his role to counsel young musicians to stand guided by morality test in their lyrical content.

“I really expressed reservations as an elder who should counsel the promising class of youngsters. When someone changes the whole scope and meaning of a Christian song that would have been composed for worship and souls-winning, I am not the one seriously offended but God, in my view. I thank God that I advised against,” Pastor Charamba said
