The controversial house music producer didn't take this lying down. He quickly responded to the claims and denied having stolen the song, saying he didn't even know Phora nor had any interaction with him. He also apologised for insulting him while defending himself from the allegation.

The news and gossip page MDNews posted the DJ's side of the story on their Twitter (X) page and wrote:

"The intention was not to insult anyone, I got worked up by the allegations that aren’t true. I still stand by my previous stance, I don’t know him, I have never received or replicated his song and I do not use that email address because I have a personal email.
"Yes you might argue he thought of me when he did the song hence it emphasises my approach and energy in making songs maybe but thats still a long shot. The song in question was produced from the same template I used to do Charlotte thats why its the same chord progression and other songs in the same key or different. Apologies for my approach but we say a lot of things when angry and thats exactly how I felt."
