A singer by the name of Portah claims that pop act Sean Tizzle stole a chorus of  his that was used in his hit song 'Perfect Gentleman'. Portah who is an Ibadan based act has come out to say he is the composer of the 'Perfect Gentleman' hook, but was not informed by Sean Tizzle or D'Tunes.

The upcoming act made this claim during an exclusive interview with THE NET. In the story, Portah recollects how he met D'Tunes in STAR FM in Ibadan when the producer and Sean Tizzle were making promo rounds for their hit single 'Sho Le'. According to Portah, D'Tunes recognized him as one of his BBM acquaintances in the past. After catching up with the budding singer, D'Tunes promised the Lead City undergraduate that he was going to sign him.
On January 2, 2014, D'Tunes called up Portah, told him to come to his studio and bring his songs along. The songs were 21 in total. On getting to the studio D'Tunes copied Portah's song from the two CDs he bought to his system. In Portah's narration of events, D'Tunes revealed to him that a friend of his based in the UK was interested in signing him, but wanted to use the producer as the front for the label. D'Tunes further told him that when his friend from the UK comes to Nigeria in a few months, the record deal will be made.

The producer later asked him if he was interested in writing for Sean Tizzle, and Portah said yes. Nothing however materialized from that because according to him D'Tunes didn't pick his calls or answer his texts after that day in the studio.

The upcoming singer said he was unaware his chorus was used in Sean Tizzle's 'Perfect Gentleman' until a friend of his sang the hook and told him it was off the pop act's debut album. Portah downloaded the song and found out it was true.

Portah claims that he reached out to D'Tunes afterwards, but the award winning producer said that he did not jack his chorus.

A representative of D'Tunes' label Difference Entertainment, Johnson has reacted to the allegations. "The guy is fabricating all these, because the song ‘Perfect Gentleman’ was done with me and a lot of other people in the studio" he stated.

'Perfect Gentleman' is the seventh single off Sean Tizzle's debut album The Journey.

This is not the first time Sean Tizzle has been involved in a song jacking scandal. His breakout single 'Sho Le' in 2012 was written by Sound Sultan. The young pop act however didn't credit his former boss. Sound Sultan threatened legal action, but the issue was settled out of court. Despite the success of 'Sho Le', the single didn't feature on The Journey despite being one of the hottest songs of 2012.
