In February 2019, Patapaa was featured in Kawoula Biov’s song “Daavi Neba”.
The song was, however, low-key until the release of the video to the track which made it gain internet fame. One part of the song that has won more people over is the is Patapaa’s rap verse.
Even though he spoke a lot of gibberish, one word was heard clearly is “Skopatumana”.
Trending on Twitter now sighted by Ghanacelebs.com indicates that Tanzanians want to claim the ownership of the word ‘Skopatumana’.
In the tweet sighted by Ghanacelebs.com a guy from Tanzania tweeted “Swahili word ‘Sco pa tu manaa’ to the world, proudly Tanzanian.. proudly swahili”, And this conversation has extended to trending number one on twitter.
Some Ghanaians can’t let it go, making it a huge and trending argument on Twitter.
