Ghanaian defunct musical group, Wutah, have said that they’ll be suing Nigerian high-life singer, Flavour N’abania for an alleged intellectual theft of their work.
‘Kwarikwa’, a song released by the ‘Ashawo’ hit maker, Flavour, which features Congolese music sensation, Fally Ipupa, is said to have the same chorus, rhyme and rhythm with their award winning song ‘Kotosa’.
‘Kotosa’ was released in 2008 and was a hit in Ghana before the Wutah groups split in 2010. Flavour released ‘Kwarikwa’ in 2011.
According to a report, one of the Wutah duo has said that they will consult their legal advisers and file a legal suite against Flavour.
However, this is not the first time the popular Nigerian high-life singer is in the news for copyright issues with the Ghanaian music industry. It would be recalled that similar reports were made concerning his hit song “Ashawo”. It was stated in the report that the song was culled from an old Ghanaian hi-life song.
