It may be trending well on YouTube, but Badshah's song Genda Phool has irked some people on social media who want the rapper to give due credit to the original composer Ratan Kahar. This is how he has responded. 

Let's talk about Kahar first. While talking to reporters in West Bengal where he resides, he said, "The lyrics of this song were written by me and music composition was also mine. But I never got any recognition for the song and it pains me a lot. I am Ratan Kahar, who never got recognised for the song."

A lot of people on Twitter also reacted to his plea and began sharing videos of the composer and how he has complete right to get his due credit. The reactions were scathing, to say the least. Have a look at them right here:

He wrote- "I would first of all like to thank each one of you that have loved and liked the song "Genda Phool" especially the appreciation front the Bengali community worldwide." (sic) And then came his clarification. It's a long one so do read from start to finish, have a look right here:
