Song thief? Makhadzi accused of stealing the Changer Magiya song concept from a Malawian artist
Singer Makhadzi is being accused of stealing the idea for her upcoming single Change Magiya. She is being charged by the Malawian artist called Scrafoc. He says Makhadzi drew lyrics from his song titled Ma Gear. His piece is currently released with a music video on streaming platforms already.
A few weeks ago, Makhadzi debuted a teaser for her upcoming single titled Change Magiya. She debuted the teaser using a TikTik dance challenge. After her debut, a lot of people caught the wave. She had fans all over Southern African countries dancing with her sound on.
Her comment section buzzed with people begging her to drop the song. Some promised her they would play the music until it reached platinum.
Similarities between the two songs
Ma Gear by Scrafoc has the melody of a deep house feel fused with amapiano. His chorus is, “Ku changer magiya. Magiya magiya magiya.” Makhadzi’s chorus is, “Change magiya, change magiya,” repeatedly.
Hands off, Makhadzi.
Tweeps are not happy with the accusations against Makhadzi for various reasons. Reason number one is that ‘ change the gears ‘ has been a South African slang term for years. According to tweeps, the beats aren’t even alike.

Fans of Makhadzi and followers of Mzansi pop culture say Makhadzi did not steal anything. According to them, her music revived an old term in the country. Many people say there are no similarities whatsoever.
Tables turn for Scrafoc
Since Makhadzi is a big name internationally, some tweeps are accusing Scrafoc of wanting clout using Makhadzi. Some even accused the Malawian artists of stealing the Virgo Deep house and amapiano sound from Mzansi.
