Team Eternity Ghana, known for their gospel hit "Defe Defe," is embroiled in a copyright infringement controversy. Veteran music producer Kwame Mickey has accused the group of unlawfully sampling a song by his artists, Helleluyah Voices. The dispute surfaced when Mickey expressed his grievances on social media, questioning the originality of "Defe Defe." He wrote, "Who is that Defe Defe Singer? If I start right now, they’ll say I'm causing trouble. What is the difference between the two songs? Somebody tell her to report and do the needful, that's all." Mickey claims that "Defe Defe" closely mirrors a song released by Helleluyah Voices 15 years ago, sharing the same lines, composition, and arrangement, despite featuring different melodies. Comparisons highlight striking similarities in lyrics and structure between the two songs.
