Should Clarence Peters be “Sorry?” Director Accused of Ripping Justin Bieber’s Video!

Flavour retained the services of well known music video director Clarence Peters to shoot his music video ‘Dance.’ The video was released in April 2016. However, the video is fast gaining attention for the wrong reason, plagiarism. Peters has been accused of ripping Justin Bieber’s ‘Sorry’ video for  his final work in ‘Dance.’

As long time readers of this blog know, this is is not the first time we have heard  this kind of accusation. We saw such accusation with videos Peters shot for Ice Prince and Tiwa Savage (Eminado). Now we are here again. Take a look. Do you agree? Did Clarence Peters rip off Justin Bieber’s video? Should he be “sorry?”
