Later, Manni clarified the matter through an Instagram video in which he said:
The song is owned by Sangra Vibes, who wrote it and recorded a lead voice for the song over 2 years ago for which I still have the date stamped files. He had invested 20 lakhs in Dilraj, which became dead money since the legal notice was received. I recorded 3 songs with Dilraj, flew him to the UK, paid for studio time, all of which now went down the drain. Once the legal notice was sent, the song ‘Verified Jatt’ returned to the original owner: Sangra Vibes. “
