Video: This Is The “Alewa” Song Andy of Mentor 1 Says Ofori Amponsah Has Stolen
I don’t actually know the correlation between Ofori Amponsah’s “Alewa” song which features Sarkdoie and this “Alewa” song from Andy of Mentor 1 but the latter says All 4 Real stole his song for his u-turn to highlife.
Andy in an interview on Pluzz FM in Accra said he contacted Kofi Nti for a collaboration after he wrote the song but Kofi never came back to him after he heard the song but Kofi Nti on the other hand has denied that he gave Andy’s song to Ofori Amponsah.
“The song ‘Alewa’ was produced by NADACO in Kumasi. My producer told me the music sounded like Hi-life so I should feature a popular Hi-life singer to sing the chorus version.”
“I had first considered to feature my mentor colleague, Okuraseni Samuel but later told popular Hi-Life singer, Kofi Nti and he advised me to change some lyrics in the song but I declined. He told me to wait for him at the studio which he never showed up at Taifa PI Studio.”
“He later called me on phone to meet him to discuss something with me but told him I’m done with the song until I recently heard that Ofori Amponsah has released similar song with same titled ‘Alewa’.”
