One of the biggest wedding on the lips of Ghanaians at the moment happens to be that of Tema-based rapper Sarkodie and his longtime girlfriend Tracy Sarkcess which came off last week after 13 years of being together.
One aspect of the wedding that wowed guests present at the event was the appearance of their wedding cake which descended from the roof of the venue where the white event took place.
After new bride in town, Tracy Sarkcess revealed the motivation behind the “Helicopter” cake, a Facebook user with the username Kathrine Akua Akoto-Bamford is accusing the event planner of using her idea for the newlyweds.
In a post shared on social media, Kathrine gave details of how she shared her idea with the event planner only to realize her idea has been used by the same person she contacted to her plan hers.

I didn’t want to talk about this but its about time I did.
Stealing of intellectual property and vendor confidentiality breach and disclosure is something that we don’t uphold here. I contacted BIG IDEAZ for a concept development. Way back in March 2018. He was to help me develop an idea for a wedding cake that will be lowered to the ground on a hoist. This guy acted oblivious to the concept. I explained everything to him and how I wanted it. Sent him videos of the place as well.
We agreed on a price last month only for him to stop contacting again so I picked another vendor.
Its surprising to see the same vendor who i discussed this with since march, who bailed out on me in June, do the same concept for another client SARKODIE which he never made mention of since march.
Creativity doesn’t lie in one persons head and I know nothing is exclusive to one particular person, but for him to not mention it and actually make me take the pain of guiding him through it since the beginning after conceptualizing the idea is appalling.
Big Ideas respect creativity from your clients and maintain disclosure and confidentiality. These pretenses don’t auger well for business. What a shitty rip off!!!

Kathrine also posted a screenshot of her conversation with the event planners
The wedding planner had earlier posted a long congratulatory note to his team which executed the feat at Sarkodie’s wedding.
