Copyright breach: Sarkodie supports Kirani Ayat against the government

Sarkodie, the multi-award-winning rapper, has backed Ghanaian artist Kirani Ayat in her legal battle against the government over a copyright violation.

Kirani Ayat recently chastised the Tourism Ministry for using excerpts from his Guda music video to promote the #VisitGhana2022 agenda without his permission.

According to him, he expects to be paid royalties owed to him because he did not give the government of Ghana permission to use his content.

He tweeted an hour ago, “It took blood, sweat, time, effort, and a lot of money to make GUDA happen.”

Earlier, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo posted a video on his Twitter timeline, promoting the #VisitGhana2022 agenda to the world.

Shortly after the video went viral on Twitter, Kirani Ayat called out the government for using his works without his permission.

Taking to Twitter to vent his anger, he tweeted:

“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.

“Whoever worked on this video should’ve reached out to the rightful content owners before proceeding. I spent my all in making GUDA possible, I’m sure you were paid for this job, where is my cut?“.

Sarkodie has reacted to Kirani Ayat’s tweet, throwing his support behind him for calling out the government for a copyright violation.

“Guess this quote is for the people cos if there’s anybody who knows this, I’m here!” Sarkodie tweeted. People might freak out if they found out how much it costs to create that 2 to 3-minute visual. “
