Sarkodie Backs Kirani Ayat over Copyright Allegations Against President Akuffo-Addo
Recently, the Ghanaian artiste took to social media to enlist his disappointment over what is additionally depicted as copyright violation.
In a Visit Ghana mission to celebrate the World tourism industry Day, the President shared a gathering of some tourists destinations in Ghana with different recordings that exhibit Ghana’s way of life.
In the post by the President, a selection of Kirani Ayat’s ‘Guda’ music video was utilized. As per the Ghanaian artiste, nobody contacted him, consequently, he feels cheated and disregarded.
“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 said in a Tweet that has gone viral.
The report came to BBC, drawing in Sarkodie to impart his insight. Responding to a distribution by the English news source, the rapper said
“we ( creatives ) do a lot to put our country out there , attracting a lot of tourists x investors that translates to money to help nation building yet that’s one sector with no support… I feel my brother and support him especially if he actually reached out and didn’t get help”.
