Popular Kumasi-based gospel music star, Anita Afriyie, has sued telecommunication giant MTN over copyright breach of her intellectual property.
A source in the management team (DANKAY Records) of the gospel artiste, explained to MustaphaInusah.Com that MTN has been using the said gospel musician’s music for the past two years for caller-ring tone and on MTN play; without any formal notification, permission or consent from the management team.
The source further stated that many attempts by Anita’s team to reach out to officials at MTN have proved futile – as the latter keeps acting unconcerned about the issue.
Due to MTN’s unconcerned posture, management of the artist (Plaintive), who’s patience run out, had no option but to sue the Yellow branded telecommunication company (Defendants).
DANKAY Records have sued MTN and have also officially served the latter the writ suit number C12/36/16 on 12th February, 2016– waiting for an appropriate response within eight days.
