Management of Ghanaian gospel musician Celestine Donkor has filed a lawsuit against Rev. Obofour.
This is after the team allegedly found the Founder and Leader of Anointed Palace Chapel (APC) using the singer’s “Agbebolo” in a 31st December 2019 All Night Service commercial, without permission.
Reports available to PlugTimes.com reveal, a query letter was sent to Rev. Obofour on November 29, 2019, however, he declined comment.
Our sources also add the recorded promotional was aired on Rev. Obofour-owned TV stations Kiss TV, Lion TV, Sweet TV and Cash TV.
PlugTimes.com understands all efforts to settle the difference through negotiations and mediations proved futile, hence, the need for arbitration.
Read the full statement below:
“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 surprise 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”.
