Gospel Singer Patience Nyarko To Sue NPP For Using Her Song ‘Oby Nyanime’ Without Permission

1 min

Gospel singer Patience Nyarko has threatened to sue the ruling NPP government over alleged use of her songs at their campaign rallies without any permission from her.

Using music without permission or paying royalties on it is second nature down here in Ghana and the singer has revealed if the NPP doesn’t stop the practice she would sue them.

Nyarko had one of the biggest hits last year titled ‘Obi Nyanime’ and after claims emerged that the NPP uses the song at rallies and plan to use it as the official 2020 campaign song, she replied on a recent episode Onua 95.1 FM’s entertainment talk show Anigye Mmre.

“I mean it’s not right , its a big offence for using someone’s intellectual property without the person’s knowledge and I believe that NPP is a big party which understands all these terminologies so I’m hoping for the right thing to be done,” Nyarko said.

Her management team also made clear that they seek an amicable solution but if that fails to materialize they would head to courts to get what is owed.
