T-Pain copies Aashiqui 2’s Tum Hi Ho, gets a taste of ‘brown Twitter’, T-Series’s wrath

In what might be a first for Bollywood music, T-Pain was openly accused of lifting the signature tune of Aashiqui 2’s ‘Tum Hi Ho’ (sung by Arijit Singh) for his song ‘That’s Yo Money’ after fans had a chance to watch the song’s video and listen to the track.

He tweeted about the ‘surprise’ track ‘That’s Yo Money’ on Dec 14. And the next day, he got a message from the Tum Hi Ho composer himself. Mithoon openly called him out…

Later that day, the film’s director, Mohit Suri weighed in…

In response, T-Pain went ahead and wrote this…

And while being called ‘Brown Twitter’ didn’t go down well with most Indians, one in particular asked others to cut the rapper some slack because his name’s Faheem, bruh! (so what, bruh?)

Yeah, so he’s “collaborated with our culture”, so what? What exactly do you mean by “we should never forget that”, bruh? Anyhoo, so T-Pain responds with this…

Mohit, for one, was having none of T-Pain’s casual racism. He let one tweet loose…

A music producer weighed in, saying the term ‘brown Twitter’ “isn’t racist and never has been”…

T-Pain went on to say this, with no apology forthcoming…

As things stand, the song has been pulled off from YouTube and Twitter.

But T-Pain hasn’t called it quits, slyly releasing the track on Spotify and other audio streaming platforms…

Who needs YouTube and Twitter, right?
