D-Black Abandons Kwaku T In The Vodafone Copyright Infringement Case

Ghana’s Hip-Pop sensation Kwaku T finds himself stack against the odds, in what could potentially be a contemporary rendition of the biblical David and Goliath tale, as he faces a telecommunication giant in a litigation which is by far the biggest test yet for Ghana’s copy right protect laws. He will not relent in becoming the first musician in Ghana to take on a corporate entity in the law courts and win, for the violation of his intellectual property rights. False reports yesterday suggested that he and his partner in the suit D-Black had been paid off by Vodafon Ghana to withdraw the case from court but Kwaku T has denied this. What actually emerged yesterday during their court session is that counsel for D-Black said his client has decided to pull out of the case leaving his buddy, Kwaku T in the cold. It remains unclear, however, where his pull-out was indeed influence by some pay-off. The Ghana rep at the second edition of Big Brother Africa remains optimistic despite the latest development. In his own words: “The case has taken various twist and turns but we're on the winning side, if things are handled properly from here on in. They're just stretching the settlement and being disrespectful at the moment. It’s a joint civil suit and just last week they bought off my co-plaintiff D-Black.”
