ZaZa's Parents Call Out Kim Kardashian After North Samples 'What I Do,' Kim Responds

The parents of the young viral “What I Do” singer ZaZa are calling out Kim Kardashian after she posted a video of North West sampling the song without crediting the original artist.

North performed her own remix of “What I Do” while singing on stage at dad Kanye West‘s Yeezy fashion show in Paris.

“In July of 2019, ZaZa & her dad went into the studio for the ultimate experience! To finally begin making the music she wanted to make. We take PRIDE in creativity, and believe whether a child’s involved or an adult… creativity deserves RESPECT/homage! What @kimkardashian (Kanye west) are doing with their daughter… with the inspiration of ZaZa & our family in mind is okay… we not mad BUT… PLS SHOW LOVE AND SUPPORT TO THE ORIGINAL FIRST!!!” ZaZa‘s parents wrote on her Instagram account.

They added, “We admire Kanye west, and adore his journey. However, we don’t wanna feel like our daughter’s journey in the world of entertainment is being STIFLED.”

I didn’t mean to not give credit where credit was due. Would love for the girls to meet soon. 💕”

Kim later wrote on her Instagram Stories, “I’m so proud of my Northie!!!!! Her 1st performance had me in tears! She had an impromptu performance on stage at her dad’s Yeezy Season 8 fashion show! Shout out to @zazathecreator, North hopes you like the remix!!!”
