Renowned songwriter Blackskin is reportedly behind bars following his arrest over issues concerning his song titled ‘Gyenvudde’ originally done by Bebe Cool.

Earlier this month, Blackskin, real name Frederick Ssenyonga, revealed how he was not paid by Bebe Cool after writing for him a new song dubbed “Gyenvudde”.

He vowed to send two faded artistes back into retirement because they do not want to pay creators yet they cannot make music on their own.

“Am going to send you in retirement you two faded artistes. You can’t make music and you don’t want to pay creators,” Blackskin wrote on social media.

The songwriter went ahead and hit studio, recorded his own version of the song, and released it a few weeks later.
