“I got a hint that NPP was using my song during their congress without my consent where the MC being an active member of the party, Lord Commey, declaring ‘Obi Nyanime” song as the official song for the event which borders on copyright…” Patience Nyarko revealed.
“The reason is that I think about my fans, we first considered what the party discussed with us to make peace but they think they are big and that they can just take someone’s property without thinking about the person”, she added.
The ‘Atigya’ singer went on to also reveal that her management had written officially to the General Secretary of the party, John Boadu, Chief of Staff Tourism minister but had yielded no results.
“People think I have sold the song to NPP, it is very difficult for people to believe me when I ask for loan from them because they think I have taken money from NPP. Nobody has given me anything, they took the song without my consent”, she sadly said.
“It’s not right, it’s 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 legalities so I’m hoping for the right thing to be done or go to court for redress”, she stated.
