(Ghana) Sarkodie settles pending ‘Kookoko’ law suit

You know say money no be problem!

Sarkodie won the Best International Act: Africa category at the 2012 BET Awards, and was nominated in the same category at the 2014 BET Awards.

Who would have thought Sarkodie will have the heart to sit and have a heart to heart talk with his biggest critic, let alone take photos together.

It all started when Mark Okraku Mantey threaten to sue Sarkodie for alleged theft of intellectual property.

The “kookoko” song originally sang by Late Daasebre Gyamena and produced by Mark Okraku was at the center of the court issue.

Sarkodie often raps in his native language Twi, and is considered a “multifaceted rapper” due to the various musical styles he possess.

Mark explained that he was the executive producer of the song and a such Sark and his team should have sought his permission before remixing the song. It caused a lot of brouhaha in the media and entertainment circle but finally it has been put to bed.

Sarkodie together with his lawyer met with Mark today around 4pm to discuss and settle the case amicably. Although we are not yet privy to the terms of agreement but what ever the agreement was, the case has finally been quashed.

In June 2014, Sarkodie collaborated with Mi Casa, Lola Rae, Davido, Diamond Platnumz and Tiwa Savage on a song for DSTV’s Africa Rising campaign, which was designed to inspire Africans to partake in community-based social investment projects.

The beauty part of the whole brouhaha is that it created the opportunity for Sark and Mark to pose for a picture together for the first time.
