Highlife musician Kofi Nti is planning to take legal action against Nigerian-American singer, Rotimi for allegedly ‘sampling’ his song without his permission.
The Empire artist has been accused of ‘stealing’ lines from Kofi Nti’s song shortly after he was reported to have pulled down Mr Drew’s ‘Eat’ song for similar actions.
A video online suggests that Rotimi grabbed lines from Kofi Nti’s ‘Odo Ndwom’ song featuring Ofori Amponsah.
Ghanaians have since called on the highlife legends to address the issue just as Rotimi’s team did to Mr Drew.
Reacting to the now viral video in an interview, Kofi Nti threatened to sue Rotimi and his team for sampling his song without his permission. He told Akwesi Ampofo, host of ‘Timebrunch’ on Time FM in Obuasi, that his lawyers are putting things together to take legal action against the US-based singer.
