Lyta’s controversial music video in question is titled ‘Hold Me Down’ begins with a female lead sitting in front of her mirror, when the drawers suddenly start shaking.

The lead pulls out the drawer and the singer emerges, sitting on top of a foundation cushion.

The scene changes to a table with a cereal box. The female lead removes the cereal box to find the singer, Lyta accompanied by dancers, using the table as a stage to perform.

However, according to fans of GOT7 boy band, the video is similar to a 2016 music video of the group.

There are now demanding an apology from the singer with the hashtag #ApologizeLyta trending on social media for allegedly ‘stealing’ the video idea and passing it off as his own.

GOT7 fans have also been reporting the YouTube page and disliking the video, demanding for the music video to be pulled down from the platform.
