Dancehall entertainer Shenseea is being accused of using art from popular American contemporary artist Stephanie Sarley in her Foreplay music video without giving credit.

Sarley, who is known on social media for her creative yet satisfying fruit art, is claiming that Shenseea used her work in the risque music video without permission or giving credit.

“HOLY SH*T. NO, SHE JUST RIPPED OFF MY ENTIRE VIDEO THROUGHOUT HER ENTIRE VIDEO. IT’S LITERALLY ALL THERE IS. MY VIDEO AND HER DANCING ON IT. I FEEL SO VIOLATED,” Sarley said when she posted clips from Shenseea’s video on Instagram earlier this week.

The matter hasn’t been addressed by Shenseea or her management team, but Sarley’s fans have been commenting on the video on YouTube, insisting that credit should be given where due.

Meanwhile, the Foreplay music video, which was released on October 24, already has more than 900,000 views on YouTube.
