Following the notice lawyers of highlife singer, Rex Omar sent to Zylofon Music concerning Obibini, an artiste signed on the label using portions of their client’s song in his latest single, Gogo Woho, the two parties have finally met to solve the issue amicably.
The spokesperson for Zylofon Music, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo speaking to Zionfelix.net about the development stated that both parties have met to resolve the issue. According to him, top officials of Zylofon Music and the highlife legend had a meeting to talk over the matter and the musician who was not happy about the release of Obibini’s ‘Gogo Woho’ single agreed to let sleeping dogs lie.
He also added that the ‘Abiba’ hitmaker following the successful meeting accepted to mentor artistes on the label. To him, “Rex Omar’s interest was not to bring the label into disrepute but as chairman of GHAMRO, it was to provide enlightenment on copyright-related matters.”
Rex Omar, through his lawyers Poku Adusei & Associates of Oyikwan Chambers threatened to sue Obibini for the use of lyrics from his song, Dea Ne Me on the rapper’s latest track, Gogo Woho.
In the notice, the lawyers state that their client was contacted by Obibini/Zylofon Media for the use of the hook/body of Dea Ne Me in 2017. Rex Omar agreed to enter into negotiations about the terms and conditions but before that could be done, Obibini went ahead to use the hook/body of the song.
The lawyers said if they did not hear from Zylofon after the 10 days, then they would resort to legal action.
