During an interview with Capital Xtra, UK, Mr Eazi clarified that he couldn’t face copyright issues with the slang because he didn’t utter it in the same manner as it was presented in the song.

In his words;

“Big shout out to Beenie Man. Beenie Man and 2Face. I got my catchphrase ‘Zagadat’ from their song ‘Nfana Ibaga’ remix. From the part, ‘And the Lord say let there be light. Zagazaga za.’ That’s where it’s from, bro.

“I don’t have to give them royalties because I said, ‘Zagadat.’ I didn’t say, Zagagaza za.”
