Highlife musician Rex Omar and Entertainment Giants Zylofon media have settled their differences after the musician threatened to sue one of its artiste Obibini.
Obibini, an artiste signed onto the Zylofon record label used portions of Rex Omar’s song in his latest single, Gogo Woho, which didn’t go down well with him and gave Obibini and his record label a 10-day ultimatum to respond or else face him in court.
The spokesperson for Zylofon Music, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo speaking in an interview 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.
