Kenyan musician doesn't recall working on Kanye West's album even though Kanye credited him as co-composer

American rapper Kanye West has released his eighth album titled Ye and two Kenyans were listed as having contributed to one of the seven songs in it.
Legendary musician Ayub Ogada and his one-time bandmate James Mbarack Ochieng are listed as co-composers of Yikes, the second song in the album but Ayub did not seem to recall exactly what input he had in the Kanye West song when The Nation contacted him.

He said "I've done so many projects. I cannot remember everything, I cannot remember at what moment in time I did that job. People use my music to do their own projects." 

In the album details, Yikes is listed as having been produced by Kanye and Mike Dean. It includes additional writing credits for Kenyan musician Ayub Ogada and collaborator James Mbarack Achieng, possibly related to a sample.
