The Rolls Royce Family, representing the interests of renowned Ghanaian musician and DJ, DJ Azonto, has announced legal action against three prominent political figures in Ghana.

The demand centers around the unauthorized use of DJ Azonto’s popular track “Fa No Fom” in political campaigns.

The controversy began when a video went viral, showing Ghana’s Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, dancing to “Fa No Fom” at a political event in the Ashanti Region.

This incident follows a prior instance where DJ Azonto had demanded $10 million in compensation for a similar unauthorized use of his song, which was not honored.

The recent video also features Chairman Wontumi, the regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party, and the Honorable Kennedy Agyapong, a member of parliament.

Both were seen using the song for their political activities without obtaining permission from DJ Azonto or his management team.

In response to these repeated infringements, the Rolls Royce Family has escalated their demands, now seeking $1 billion in compensation from each of the three political figures.

This totals a staggering $3 billion, reflecting the seriousness with which DJ Azonto and his management view the unauthorized use of his work.

Sammy Anim, the public relations officer for the Rolls Royce Family, emphasized that the issue extends beyond financial compensation. “This is about respecting the rights and efforts of artists. DJ Azonto’s creation is being exploited without acknowledgment or compensation, which sets a harmful precedent for intellectual property rights in our industry,” he stated in the press statement they released on Friday, June 14, 2024.

They have also urged music bodies, such as the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO), to take a stand in protecting the rights of musicians in such cases.
