Lethal Bizzle, real name Maxwell Owusu Ansah, is claiming Love Island stars Kem Cetinay and Chris Hughes have agreed to give him a percentage of the royalties from their new single.
The rapper took to Instagram to reveal the situation had been sorted, after claiming earlier this week that the boys had used his phrase “leave it” in their track, Little Bit Leave It.
He is now urging fans to download the single and said he will donate the royalties to charity.
Lethal Bizzle took to Instagram to explain the rights issue had been sorted, jokingly referring to the lads as “Kemp and Ross”.
He said: “Right about now, it’s not leave it. Ah s**t. So Kemp and ross have come to their senses and we’ve agreed a percentage for the Little Bit Leave It song.
“So there’s no more issues, yeah? So you lot go out there, support the ting, cos now mans getting paid for it, mans want to make sure my cheque is healthy. So, support it. It’s out now and all that good stuff.”
Earlier this week, the rapper demanded a cut from the Love Island stars and expressed his annoyance that he hadn’t been credited for what he claims is one of his sayings.
“You couldn’t leave me alone innit,” he said in a video posted on Twitter. “Kem and his other brother – I don’t know what his name is – Ross, you took my phrase fam. Cool, I want everyone to use my phrase.”
He continued: “Everyone knows I make up words but when you want to go and do a song and make money from them then I have a problem with that.
“So we need to have a conversation. Shabs – the guy who signed the record – I know him very well. I’m a very reasonable person so let’s just get this sorted out before it goes anywhere else because it doesn’t need to go anywhere else.
