When news broke that, popular music producer, Mark Okraku Mantey, had threatened a legal action against Sarkodie over copyright infringement; some observers, especially the fans of the rapper, called his bluff and stated that the case would not go to court. They were damn right!
The producer, in an interview on Hitz FM 103.9FM, told listeners, he was not going to pursue the case in the court anymore.
His reason; he’s had a conversation with Sarkodie’s lawyers and he’s also had a chat with Sarkodie.
“Sarkodie’s lawyers called me over the weekend. Sarkodie himself called me. We’ve spoken,” he stated.
He went on to disclose that, there will be a meeting in the course of the week between Sarkodie’s camp and his camp to discuss the way forward.
“Yes… We have a meeting within the week and we will discuss further. Whatever happens, I’m sure we will all know,” he noted.
Over the weekend, a member of the Sarkcess Label, Angel, stated on Starr FM that – they do recognize the violation and were making efforts to reach Okraku Mantey.
Last week, Mark Okraku Mantey, head of Slip Music, right owners of the song, ‘Kokooko’ by the late Daasebre Gyamenah, threatened to sue Sarkodie, for not seeking permission and clearance before making a rendition of the song, which is a tribute to the highlife legend.
