  1. Good evening,
    I’m D8’s personal assistance and I wanted to warn you that those “accusations” are all faked and they all come from haters and as we all know, from the music industry, that all the artists have haters and that those “accusations” should NOT be valid.
    Due to the fact that I’m his assistance I guarantee you that he HAS the rights to that music, in fact he bought the rights to use it.
    Further more, I am politly asking you to remove this announcement or “news” due to the fact that those “accusations” are false and only rumors.
    Thank you very much!

    Theresa Cardoso, personal assistance

      • Since ‘personal assistant’ Teresa had her say, I figured it’d be important to have another view because unfortunately she distorted quite a few facts. I’m Portuguese too and I love both K-Pop and Hip-Hop, hence I’ve been following this situation very closely. I can also provide evidence of everything I’m writing if need be.
        First, she claims that the accusations are faked by haters, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. I don’t even see why D8 would have haters, he’s definitely not famous or successful enough for that, far from it, he was just on some talent show, didn’t win, and then he made a commercial that most people detested or ridiculed, and this was 2 years ago, I didn’t even know he had released an album until these plagiarism news emerged, his album just went completely under the radar.
        In any case, the so-called accusations were published over 1 month ago by a news website that to the best of my knowledge has a good reputation in Portugal. Just like this article, the website didn’t say D8 plagiarized, it simply listed the accusations, Suju’s SOLO was only one among many. But anyone can see that many of D8’s lyrics are indeed very similar to previous songs, there are even whole sentences that are exactly the same, and that is a fact. Also, at least one Portuguese artist has stepped forward and publicly accused D8 of having plagiarized one of his songs. So, faked accusations? Haters? Definitely not.
        As regards SOLO, Suju’s fans have been asking D8 about it for over 1 month now and he has kept mute. I even discovered that he had been confronted about this in early 2015 and also kept silent at the time. If he’s got the rights, at least no public credit seems to have been given.

      • Hi. Seeing how Teresa had her say, I figured it’d be important to have another input, since unfortunately she distorted a few things. I’m Portuguese and a big fan of both K-Pop and Hip-Hop, hence my interest and following of the case. I can easily produce evidence of everything I’m about to say, if need be.
        For starters, she claims plagiarism accusations have been faked by “haters”. I don’t even see why or how D8 would have haters, he’s definitely not famous or successful enough for any of that. He was on a talent show, didn’t win, and then shortly after he made a commercial that most people detested or ridiculed, this was all 2 years ago and he hasn’t been heard of since, I didn’t even know he had released an album until these accusations emerged, it just seems to have stayed completely under the radar.
        In any case, those accusations were disclosed by a news website, which appears to have a good reputation in Portugal. Just like this report, that website didn’t say D8 plagiarized, it simply listed the plagiarism claims, Suju’s S.O.L.O. being only one among many. Fact is several of D8’s lyrics are very similar to previous songs, some even feature entire sentences from other songs. And at least one Portuguese artist did step forward and publicly accused D8 of having plagiarized one of his songs.
        Now onto Suju’s S.O.L.O.: Suju’s fans have been asking D8 about it for over one month now and he has stayed mute. His videos, including the one on his Vevo account, have no mention or credits whatsoever. I know now that Suju fans had already confronted him over one year ago about this and he also kept silent at the time.

        • Hello. Thank you very much for your input to this situation and we have figured out ,after a discussion with D8’s assistant, that D8 has actually bought the rights to use some parts of the song.

          If D8 had stated that he has bought the rights to sample SuJu’s song earlier, then this whole controversy would not have even happened.. In order to bring light into this controversy, we have decided to help publish an article that will be able to show D8’s side of the story and hopefully clear out any misunderstandings.

          Thank you for your support for NowKPop and we will try all our best to continue to bring out unbiased and entertaining KPop news and content.

          • Hello NowKPop. And thank you for your reply.

            I must say that translation is extremely difficult to read because the English is very poor. I have seen D8’s tweets as I can read Portuguese, they are a tad confusing as well but not as much as the “English” version, which is virtually unintelligible.

            Regardless, it seems like some rights were bought, not clear when. But there are still a few unclear elements, notably the title and the chorus, which he credits only to himself, despite being the same as in Suju’s song.

            Also, this whole issue started over one year ago and only now has D8 clarified anything, after he saw the situation escalate. He really didn’t seem to want the public to know he was using a third-party song, as he always claimed to be 100% original and did present S.O.L.O. as an original of his. So, regarding this song maybe he’s somewhat legal after all, but he’s definitely not the most transparent person out there.
