Rev Obofour will have to meet the management and husband of Gospel musician Celestine Donkor in court on Wednesday after the two failed to reach amicable resolutions to a copyright issue.
Readers of Buzzgh.com will remember a report we wrote about how unhappy Celestine Donkor was when her song “Agbebolo (Bread Of Life)” was used to promote the 31st night service of Obofour’s church.
When Mr Kofi Donkor , the husband and manager of Celestine contact Obofour and his team of the unauthorized use of the song, they made no comments and just changed the soundtrack without any apologies or compensations.
Mr. Kofi Donkor wrote the letter below to inform Obofour about the actions taken against him.
Dear Rev Obofour,
I write to you not as one of your followers and a beneficiary of your ‘generosity’ but as the executive producer of the song you used to promote your 31st December watch night service WITHOUT permission.
When the police investigator and myself met you in your Achimota office you claimed you were promoting the song and that you have a very large following but sadly you said you have never heard a name Celestine Donkor before. I am surprised at how you can promote a person you don’t know exists but granted.
My team did everything to get you to put on your sense of reasoning but like you got one of your subordinates to tell Akwasi Aboagye on Peace fm when this issue first broke in November, “we can go to hell”.
We are not going to ‘hell’ but we are going to the courts to seek justice. Just so you know, we have a date on Wednesday. But this time it is an order for you to appear before the Criminal Court. This is just for the commencement of the Criminal aspect of your unlawful act. Also, note that the Civil suit will soon commence.
We did everything to get you to address this illegality but you know we are nobodies and so you retreated us with gross disrespect. Justice will prevail. Like they say “the wheel of justice grind slowly”, We shall surely have Justice!
See you in court Sir.
