Rhett Price, the US violinist who accused a Trinidadian man of taking his music and passing it off as his own had high praise of Trinbagonians in the wake of the drama.
Price posted a status to Facebook late on Friday lauding Trinbagonians for their “amazing sense of humor”.
The ongoing saga began on September 3 when Price accused Chaitoo of passing his music off as his own in an article in the Boston Globe,
Price said someone sent him a link to a video in which Chaitoo was playing covers of Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” and Major Lazer’s “Lean On” in a bar. He believed that Chaitoo was playing his version of the songs and passing them off as his own.
Price and the Boston Globe contacted Chaitoo, who reportedly broke down in tears while confessing he was a huge fan of Price’s and was inspired by his style of playing.
When contacted by Loop, Chaitoo, who many are now referring as the local “Milli Viollini”, denied that he was doing anything wrong by playing over Price’s tracks.
