A Ghanaian music producer has commented on DJ Azonto’s decision to demand $10 million from the campaign team of Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.

In a statement released on May 16, 2024, Rolls Royce Family, the management of DJ Azonto, complained about the unauthorized usage of the artiste’s ‘Fa No Fom’ song during a campaign event.
