Upcoming rapper and song writer, Truth, released a single titled "Nokware" in August, 2014. Fast forward to December, 2014, Joey B released his "Otoolege" single with beat and rhythm from the same samples of ‘Nokware’. This created a feud between the rappers in question.

The artiste in an interview with Ytainment stated that his argument isn’t to create discourse on issues that affect the Ghanaian music industry but he feels he cannot bear it any more than to speak out.

"You know when I heard that I was like “hold up” musicians do sample different songs all the time so if Joey did that on his single “Otolege” it is not such a big deal but yeah Joey did take some part of my composition which he should have given some credit to me but since he didn’t it doesn’t feel right so yeah that’s the only issue but apart from that am cool with it and it even tells how far that song “Nokware” is making an impact so yeah is cool." he said

Expressing his feelings on how people use others work without duly accrediting the original owner, he said "Sampling others song is not a bad thing, we all do it every musician does it but not giving credit to the owner or consulting them first might not be the right thing to do".
