Badshah Denies Plagiarism Claims Over Genda Phool Lyrics, Ratan kahar's Name Isn't In Records, To Help Him Financially

Rapper Badshah on Tuesday denied allegations that he used folk artiste Ratan Kahar’s lyrics in his track ”Genda Phool” without credits, saying he could not find the lyricist’s name anywhere in the records.

People soon pointed out how the song has been plagiarized from a Bengali folk song written by Ratan Kahar. What’s more surprising is that he wasn’t even given the credits.

Soon, Ratan Kahar spoke up. He appealed to writers and literary personalities to protest against the plagiarism.

IndiaTimes reported, “The lyrics of this song were written by me and music composition was also mine. But I never got any recognition for the song and it pains me a lot. I am Ratan Kahar, who never got recognised for the song. You judge what kind of justice is that.

Badshah said the term folk implies a song of the people. “I am sure he is a great artiste… It is such a beautiful composition and piece of music and I just wanted to sample it in a song and I wanted the whole world to listen to it.

“Whosoever has tweeted me and all those who made this documentary and his well wishers, I want you to reach out to Ratan Kahar and tell him that I am here and he can reach out to me, I would love to help him. I have heard he is struggling financially and I want all my friends from the fraternity to support folk artistes.”

The rapper said he would love to help the artiste in “whatever form I can, on humanitarian, artistic grounds”

“But as of now, as per records, it”s a Bengali folk song. It”s not in the records that it”s written by Ratan Kahar ji. I have no qualms in helping him. if there was no lockdown, I would have come and met you.

Badshah has now denied allegations that he used folk artiste Ratan Kahar’s lyrics in his track Genda Phool without credits. He said that he could not find the lyricist’s name anywhere in the records.
