Rapper A Reece has distanced himself from a fake album released under his name called 'Sotho Man With Some Power'.

The album was released on the 17th of April and Reece and his team issued out a statement explaining that it is a copyright infringement. The album title is a cloned version of Nasty C's upcoming album 'Zulu Man With Some Power'.

A Reece describes the album as "a fake body of work which could only have been released as a result of cowardice and opportunism."

The hackers released the album in an attempt to cause havoc between the two rappers whose fans are constantly trying to pit against each other. They did a pretty good job by hacking into his Apple music account and release the album that is a duplicate of previous releases.

Reece and his lawyers released the statement which also expresses their anger towards this malicious act. In the statement they express how this was deliberately done 'to create a professional rift with colleagues in the industry.'

"...it is with great annoyance and disappointment that we have come to learn of an album released by an entity only known to us currently as '2018 Rubber Band Gang' under the name of rapper Lehlogonolo Mataboge, professionally named A-Reece," the statement reads.

They contacted Apple music and other distributors to immediately take down the album from all their platforms.

Despite their call for fans to refrain from downloading or streaming the album, because of its lack of legitimacy, the album is currently ranking at fourth place on Apple Music’s Hip-Hop/Rap album ranking for South Africa.
