Ghanaian musician Barima Sidney has been sued for his new song “Papa No”.
Sidney was surprised by the fact that his songs did not specifically target anyone. He said that the fact that people attached some personal photos to his songs caused lawsuits.
“When I released this song, people were reading the meaning of it. I never mentioned anyone’s name in the song. We were all looking for “Dad No,” and we didn’t have any clues about him. Throughout social media People attach some images to my song. I used photos of some famous people, such as photos of former President Mahama that has nothing to do with the song. I didn’t mention anyone’s name, but I did It’s unfair to be dragged to court. I don’t know anything about it, and for this reason, my management is issuing a press statement on this.” He told Okay FM’s Halifax.
The producer of the “Ghana Money” hit single also seized the opportunity to warn the public not to associate his song with any personality or image.
“Those who add pictures to the song, please stop playing. Don’t tag my song with any personality. I don’t know who is Dad, I just said what he did.”
Tracey Boakye yelled that since she gave birth to the man’s daughter (three-month-old baby), a man (Akan translated “Papa No”) has been taking good care of her.
Interestingly, it appears that the NPP infantry has adopted this song, apparently for political capital, as many people have been identified to share the song with various political comments on social media.
