K.O’s “No Fear” Free Download Campaign Sabotaged

K.O’s No Fear was dropped on Friday and reached its
download limit on Soundcloud. In order to meet the
demand Cashtime moved the song to datafile host.
Understanding the game is about numbers and how
rare it is for K.O to give out a song for free this was a
good case study for Cashtime to see how well he
does on a free platform. It turns out someone claimed
to own the song to datafile host and asked for it to be
removed. The song was unavailable for a few hours
and when datafile host eventually put it up the
download count was reset. Check out the
conversation with Datafile Host and Cashtime
Manager Thabiso Khati.
