Ghanaian highlife artiste, Rex Omar has disclosed that he has dropped his intended suit against Zylofon Media signee Obibini.
According to him, his reason was that Zylofon was supporting the music industry at the time.
He explained to Delay on her show that although Obibini refused to give him the due credit, he reconsidered the young generation and decided to let things go.
“If you want to take my song, there’s a way to go about it. At least give me some respect and approach me before you use my song. Don’t go use my song and think that.
“I was actually going to take them to court. Upon second thought, for the sake of the young generation, everybody had placed their hope on Zylofon thinking that they would do something for the industry which I think they were doing.” Rex said
“They were trying. I think they gave hope to the industry. So I decided to go low on it. I didn’t push it.” He added.
Rex Omar threatened to sue Obibini if he is not compensated for the use of lyrics from his song, Dea Ne Me on Obibini’s track, Gogo Woho.
Rex Omar, through his lawyers Poku Adusei & Associates of Oyikwan Chambers, has given a 10-day ultimatum to Zylofon Media demanding the unspecified compensation.
In the notice, the lawyers stated 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.
