The purpose of writing this article is not to despise or humiliate anyone or to prove anyone wrong. We just want to share with you some of the interesting facts we found on the internet. There are also songs that have given our childhood a really fun moment. Listening to this song today also reflects the moments spent in our childhood.

At that time when there was not such a good scope of music in our country and listening to the songs and music of outside artists, inspired by them, when you compose a song, you get a glimpse of it. This is not a new thing, but I think it is wrong not to give credit to someone’s song by copying it.
