She released her first song called ‘Radio’, featuring Barak Jaccuzi which people claimed that it was pretty much average and basic but the mainstream media gave it a lot of attention and airplay compared to other talented underground artists who struggle to get airplay.

Now Bey-T took it to social media to accuse Tanasha of using her phrase “Kenya to the world” in the ‘Radio’ song.

She claimed that she coined it and was the one who used it first in her previous songs and Tanasha Donna is just clout chasing but not here to do music.

Bey-t still doesn’t believe that she is talented enough to start using other artists’ verse who have been out here pushing their craft for a long time.

This accusation turned into a heated argument on Instagram which later ended in Bey-T dropping a diss track, which of course made her some money.

In the song she is pressing Tanasha to go back to Radio broadcasting since she uses ghost writers in her music.

Tanasha Dona clapped back to Bey-T with an insta story saying that she is just chasing clout.

Maybe Tanasha should just go back to radio or just respond back with a hard diss track or just keep quiet and ignore the whole thing instead of looking stupid with an insta story.
