There’s no love lost after the parents of the 4-year-old viral sensation ZaZa took to Instagram to address Kim Kardashian and Kanye West over the use of ZaZa’s 2019 Youtube song, “What I Do?” with no credit.
North West, the 6-year-old daughter of the famed couple, closed out the Yeezy Season 8 fashion show with what appeared to be North rapping over ZaZa’s “What I Do?” beat.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As footage of the performance went viral, ZaZa’s parents took to Instagram to address the situation in a post.
“In July of 2019, ZaZa & her dad went into the studio for the ultimate experience! To finally begin making the music she wanted to make. We take PRIDE in creativity, and believe whether a child’s involved or an adult… creativity deserves RESPECT/homage,” the statement read.
”What @kimkardashian (Kanye west) are doing with their daughter… with the inspiration of ZaZa & our family in mind is okay… we not mad BUT….PLS SHOW LOVE AND SUPPORT TO THE ORIGINAL FIRST!!! We admire Kanye west, and adore his journey. However, we don’t wanna feel like our daughter’s journey in the world of entertainment is being STIFLED.”
Kim West responded to ZaZa’s accusations in a comment under the post, before highlighting her daughter’s ”remix” of the popular song.
”We love you, North is a huge fan and records in the studio all the time with her dad and is inspired by ZaZa and loves Lay Lay too! Today’s performance of North’s remix of ZaZa’s song was something she asked to do at the last minute and a complete surprise. I didn’t mean to not give credit where credit was due. I would love for the girls to meet soon. ?”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“What I Do?” has over 13-million views and counting on Youtube. ZaZa appeared on Ellen with guest host tWitch, where they chatted about her “bad and boujee” personality and taking to the stage to perform an adorable routine to Chance the Rapper, “Hot Shower.”
