Okraku Mantey to sue Sarkodie for Kokooko song remake.

Music Producer Mark Okraku Mantey has disclosed why he has threaten to sue Ghanaian rapper, Michael Owusu Addo real name, Sarkodie for sampling Daasebre Dyamena’s
song Kokooko which he produced.
Okraku-Mantey says he wants to seek redress in court to get the right thing done and not as a result of jealousy as some people believe.
“Under normal circumstance if he had called me to
say that he is doing Kokooko remake as a tribute
to Daasebre, I would have just said ‘go ahead’. I
want to hear it sound good or even better. The most important part of this whole thing is how it sounds funny. I didn’t hear anything from him only to see Jon Germain send me a link and when I opened it, I heard my song playing so after hearing
my song play, I said at least show me some respect,” said Okraku-Mantey when he appeared as a panellist on Pundits on GhOneTV Tuesday
“I am the sampling master in this country so we
know how this game plays. I know when the person does not have access to me or I don’t have access to the person, it is a different ball
game but when the person is just next door, you
know the person can chase you so we shouldn’t take this case for granted.”
The Slip Music owner adds the response from Sarkodie and his team will decide whether he will
head to the court for a decision to be taken.
“I want to see the steps he will make. If he doesn’t make any steps then it gives me a clue
that he doesn’t want to respect the industry then we will use him to set example for the younger ones to learn from it. All these court cases are
precedents so if we set one for others to learn from it, there is nothing wrong.”
