Plagiarism stretches the breadth of every artistic industry in the world.
There have been some really inflamed cases around the world, from Fareed Zakaria’s numerous cases to the most recent Melania Trump jacked speech from Mrs Obama, plagiarism rears its ugly head every now and then.
In Ghana, the most conspicuous cases have involved musicians. Here are the 7 Ghanaians who have been accused of stealing musical contents from others…with evidence.
As a true M.anifest fan, it is almost hard to include him in this list, but the internationally acclaimed rapper came under scrutiny when he was accused of robbing Belizean musician and producer, Ivan Duran’s beat for his hit song “Someway Bi.” Duran’s beat originally appeared on Umalali’s “Mérua” originally recorded in the year 2009 and M.anifest’s “Someway Bi” came out in 2013.
Edem (Formerly Ayigbe Edem)
The list of infamy continues with Ewe-rapper, Edem. He was accused by two musicians, Eduwodzi and Kosi Bone, of stealing “Nyedzilo”, a song which features Mavins star Reekado Banks.
Yaa Pono in an interview with BBC’s Rita Ray in 2014 claimed ownership of Dark Suburb’s first major hit “I Dey Feel You Die”.
The Ghanaian darling, Stonebwoy was accused of musical theft by “No Noise” hit maker, Rashid Metal.
Guru has been accused of plagiarism on countless occassions. He has been accused of stealing many unknown songs but on records, he has been accused of stealing “Bossu”, a song by an upcoming act Osagy, “Kpakpakpa Movement” (a popular term by an internet sensation) and the recent “Obumpa”, a song owned by an upcoming act Nautica.
Kumawood movie producer, Paul Gee, accused singer Bisa Kdei of stealing his soundtrack “Aboa Sika” for his first album. The movie producer disclosed that he paid Bisa to record the song for his movie so it came to him as a surprise when he noticed that the “Song Writer of the Year” award-winner at the 2014 Ghana Music Awards had put the song on his album. In the same year, he was accused of stealing his chart topping track “Saa” by sound engineer O’tion. He accused him of stealing a song titled “Ewiase” – which he released before Bisa Kdei’s “Saa”.
In 2012, Asem released a Hip-hop track “Show Something” off his Solid Ground album. Shortly after the release, Purp’man, a Ghanaian rapper based in Chicago, USA, accused Asem of stealing his music beat which he (Purp’man) used for his song “Y U Bore”. Purp’man claimed he released his track before Asem’s album.
Man Calls Hajia4Real An International Prostitute And This Is His Reason (Photo)
Today on Throwback Thursday, we are taking you to last year, when Mona Montrage, the then girlfriend (fiancée) of Ghanaian business man, Kennedy Agyapong (Kenpong) parted ways, which led to a tape by Amanda Acquah – who is now married to Ghanaian footballer, Afriyie Acquah. The tape, as many may be aware caused a stir in the media as Amanda accused Mona of sleeping around with many top footballers.
We are throwing back to revelations by a man called Adams who backed his allegations that Hajia4Real is an International prostitute with proof. He made a tall revelation on Facebook that awed everyone. Here is an unedited copy of it, directed at advising Kenpong:
Hey bro I saw you just posted a picture of Mona in your profile. Well I am not the usual type that comments on stuffs like that but just wanna let you know it’s never love. I was the first victim of Mona. I guess you know the story if we’re following my facebook in 2011. I was introduced to her by a friend and finally we got engaged. I paid for her school and brought her to the U.S. Her first time of coming to the U.S. and when she came over here, I bought her a Range Rover, you can still see that on my page. I spent a total of $100,000 dollars on this girl expenses. But then what happened, she didn’t even spend 6 months in my house. She left and start sleeping with taxi drivers with the help of Sirina Issah. So she is nothing but an international Prostitute.
My story is silent because I ain’t one of the guys who will like her downfall but before I brought her here for the first time, she didn’t have no high school certificate so she took about $5000 dollars to do a fake one and that was what she sent to the embassy.
What I went through with this girl, if I were to make it known on facebook, her life would have been over. I still have all the fake high school certificate she did in order for me to enroll her in to a school here. She was nothing.
You know I was born in tamale and I left Ghana when I was very young. Made a lot of money here in the USA and I wanted to get marry because of pressure I was getting from back home.
So a homie in tamale named Abdul basit Tuba Dagomba introduced her to me It was back in 2010. I was taking care of her, her schooling until 201. When she decided that she want to join me here in the USA. So as usual, our families got together for engagement ceremonies and I started her school procedures her.
Immediately she got here, she said she wanted to stay in Chicago so I went to Chicago met Sirina Issa Rented an apartment there for her I didn’t wanna quite my job in New York. So I was with her and Chicago and very monday I had to fly in to New York. That serious thing u got for her.
Then when ever I leave for New York she would go and be staying with taxi driver and smoke weed (that’s not a problem to smoke weed). Then sometimes she brings men in my house whiles I was in New York, they will smoke and sleep in my house. I didn’t believe it until when I bought a Range Rover for her and later they decided to send the car to exchange for cash and the car company called me.
I rush over to Chicago to talk to her and she got mad and moved out of my house to stay with Sirina Isaah. That was the end of the story, I tried many times to talk to her, and she wouldn’t return. Sirina Issah took advantage of my love vulnerability to steal a lot of money from me with the promise that they gonna let her come back to me
