Another single by Shaira disappears from digital platforms amid plagiarism claims

The unexpected disappearance of Shaira’s chart-topping track, “Forever Single (Walang Jowa),” from online streaming platforms has sparked discussions about potential plagiarism.

Followers of the Bangsamoro pop sensation were the first to notice the conspicuous absence of “Forever Single (Walang Jowa)” from Spotify PH’s viral songs chart on Sunday, March 24. The song had also completely vanished from the platform, accompanied by the removal of its music video.

Despite fervent speculation surrounding the song’s disappearance and its alleged resemblance to “Masih Mencintainya” by Indonesian band Papinka, Shaira’s agency, AHS Productions, has refrained from making any official statements on the matter.

This latest incident comes in the wake of the removal of Shaira’s previous hit, “Selos,” from online platforms, intensifying concerns regarding the originality and integrity of her musical repertoire.

Numerous questions arise as the music community ponders these developments, contemplating Shaira’s career trajectory and the broader implications for artistic integrity in the digital age. Whether Shaira’s musical legacy can withstand this scrutiny remains uncertain. However, one fact remains undeniable: the disappearance of another single signifies a pivotal moment in the singer’s journey, leaving fans awaiting further developments.
