The man of God stood trial for extracting part of Celestine Donkor’s song titled “Agbebolo”- the bread of life, without her consent.
He pleaded guilty with an explanation to infringement of copyright contrary to Sections 42(1)(a) and 43 of Copyright Act of 2005, (Act 690).
Rev. Obofour told the Court presided over by Madam Eva Bannerman Williams that he accepted liability as the owner of the various Television (TV) stations that used her music without consulting her, adding that he had already met her and paid compensation.
The Court took the explanation as a plea for mitigation convicted Rev Obofour on his own plea. He was bonded to be of good behaviour for six months.
