The situation garnered attention both locally and internationally, casting a spotlight on issues of artistic inspiration and intellectual property rights.

Acknowledging the similarities between the two songs, Shaira and AHS Productions initiated talks with Lenka’s camp to secure a cover license for “Selos”. This proactive approach aimed to address any legal concerns and ensure that listeners could continue to enjoy Shaira’s song without facing legal repercussions. Throughout the negotiations, both parties remained committed to finding an amicable solution that respected the rights of all involved.
