HAPPY DAY: Did Sarkodie and Kuame Eugene Sample FatBoy Slim’s Original Version ?

In recent times Kuame Eugene, touted as Ghana’s Highlife Artiste of the year and Multiple Award Winning Rapper Sarkodie has been caught in several sampling and musical theft scandals. Well, it seems this is not going away anytime soon as on the 15th of July 2021, The Food Chain Show (Hosted by Emily Thomas) on BBC once again has brought Sarkodie’s Viral and subtle NPP campaign song titled Happy Day, onto the “sampling chopping board” for Netizens to discover, analize and figure out the real truth on their own.

So far, it’s not been easy for the Lynx Entertainment Signee whose hard work and creativity most of the time ends with his fans and music lovers asking if he can ever be original. Then again, this time Sarkodie’s Viral Happy Day Song which featured him seems to be sampled from Fatboy Slim’s song titled “Praise You’.

Team mcBLOG has discovered an audio clip on the BBC World Service Podcast, that used Fatboy Slim’s song as one of it’s background music. In fact, upon hearing the intro, we thought BBC had used a modified version of Sarkodie’s Happy Day song on their show, only to realize that the song was not what we imagined.

So team mcBLOG took it upon ourselves to dig deeper and a lot of questions arose after finding out how Praise You and Happy day have some semblance in composition. So we ask just one simple question: Who sampled who?

Moving on to do our comparison, we quickly reached for the app known to easily listen to songs and predict its composer. we allowed the app to listen to Sarkodie’s Happy day Song and the results were perfect. Shazam reports that Happy Day song Featuring Kuame Eugene indeed belongs to “Obidi Pon Bidi”. We then went ahead to play the radio cut of the other and shazam reports the owner as Fatboy Slim.

But then further checks reveals that Fatboy Slim is the original composer of the opening and dominant beat which we had thought BBC had modified from Sarkodie’s Happy Day Song for the show.

As of 1999, it has sold over 150,000 units in the US.

So we asked, how come nobody noticed. If it must be done, it must be done well… Team mcBLOG thinks the record labels Lynx Entertainment and Sarkcess Music owns it’s fans some explanation.
