GLORIA MULIRO on being EXPOSED …. I am not a LIAR or THIEF

Friday, February 15, 2013 - It’s been a bad week for gospel award winning singer Gloria Muliro after her fans bashed her for allegedly plagiarizing a song. The track in question is the recently released song Follow you which is copied from Chris Tomlin’s I will follow.

And finally Gloria has spoken out about the track through her Facebook page and said that she did not steal the lyrics as she found inspiration for the song from the Bible verse Ruth 1:16-17 which she quoted:

But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.” NIV

She then went forth to quote the lyrics of the track which definitely are not similar to the Tomlin’s lyrics since hers are in Swahili. What she did not say is that she actually stole the tune for the track which is very similar.

Verse 1:

1. Unaponipeleka
mie si lazima nijue Unachoniwazia mie si lazima
nijue Njia zako hakika Mambo yako sambamba
Mipango yako sawa,sawa Njia zako hakika Mambo
yako sambamba Mipango yako sa.a……wa 


Verse two :
2.hakuna dhiki kwako,hakuna chuki kwako,wala unafiki kwako,baba kwako,ni marafiki kwako,kuna amani kwako,baba kwako,hakuna vita kwako,hakuna magonjwa kwako,wala talaka kwako,baba kwako
kuna upendo tele kwako,furaha kwako,umoja kwako,baba kwako 
where you go,al go,where you stay al stay,where you move al move al move,i will follow you!!
