Kirani Ayat Accuses President Akuffo-Addo Of Using His Work To Promote Ghana Without Permission

Kirani Ayat Accuses President Akuffo-Addo Of Using His Work To Promote Ghana Without Permission

In order to draw tourists to Ghana, President Nana Akufo-Addo is allegedly utilizing a musician’s work without their consent or giving them credit.
Before filming his Guda music video, Ghanaian musician Kirani Ayat claimed he asked the government for assistance but was rejected.
The video, which was produced in northern Ghana, highlights the local culture and includes beautiful scenery.
Ayat criticized the president on Tuesday after he tweeted a promotional video:

“The President of Ghana has used my video ‘Guda’ in this ad to promote Ghana. I was actively reaching out to the Ministry of Tourism in 2018/19 to use this video to push tourism in the North and got no reply, yet today it’s in an ad and no one reached out to me for permission,” he wrote.

Scenes in the musician’s video featuring women posing on top of a giant tree and others dancing have been featured in the tourism advert.

Here is the artist’s video:

Kirani said he worked a 12-hour shift as a security guard for seven days over a three-month period to save money for the video production costs.

“I reached out a couple of times to no avail. I was depressed throughout that period,” the musician wrote.

Ghanaians on social media have encouraged the musician to sue the government for copyright infringement.

Ghana has previously marketed the country for tourism with the famous year of return initiative launched in 2019 termed a great success by the government.

Several international celebrities visited the country that year.
