DJ Azonto's management demands compensation of $10m for unauthorized use of song in Bawumia's campaign

DJ Azonto and his management, the Rolls Royce Family, have accused Vice President Dr. of unauthorized use of the artist's track ‘Da No Fom' during a campaign trip to Nalerigu in the North East Region. In a statement shared on , the management asserted that the Vice President's use of the song infringes on DJ Azonto's intellectual property rights, demanding compensation of $10 million.

“This unauthorised use of our artist's property for campaign purposes is unacceptable,” the management stated adding that it also disregards the efforts put into making the song possible.

Like many other entertainers, the Rolls Royce Family noted that they are willing to collaborate with political figures who would like to use their artiste's work, however, only if the proper legal channels are used.

“As the rightful managers of DJ Azonto's work, we were neither approached for permission nor did we authorize the use of ‘Fa No Fom' in any capacity related to the Vice President's campaign.”

“In light of this infringement, we demand a compensation of $10 million. This amount reflects the value of the work and the damages incurred to the artist and management due to its misuse in such a high-profile campaign,” they indicated.

The management stressed the importance of respecting copyright laws and intellectual property rights.

They noted that a simple call to the artist's management could have ensured the legal and respectful use of their work, thereby avoiding any unauthorised usage.

“We urge Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia's campaign team to immediately address this issue and take steps to prevent such oversights in the future,” the Rolls Royce Family stated.

“We also request a fair and timely settlement from Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia's team to resolve the unauthorized use of DJ Azonto's song in a manner that protects and respects the intellectual property rights of the country.”
