Ghanaian musician, Kofi Kinaata has threatened to sue an event promoter for making defamatory comments against him.
Kofi’s lawyers have sent a writ to an artist manager, one Sleeky demanding public apology and clearance from the promoter before May 22, 2020.
Failure to do so will end him in court to face the wrath of the law.
The summons signed by the lawyers of Kofi Kinaata and his team move in Takoradi, Bosomtwi Sam, and Associates have been served to Sleeky, who has further acknowledged receipt.
Some parts of the writ read “Take notice and notice is nearby given to you that, should you fail to comply by this notice by the time hearing set, we shall not hesitate but promptly sue you in court for the necessary remedies,”.
This summons comes after Sleeky asked Kofi kinaata to support upcoming artiste in Takoradi in the western region as he was aided to reach the heights he has attained.
Speaking on Tarkoradi Based Radio Station, sleeky observed that, the boys in the region played a crucial role in making Kofi Kinaata and therefore must help the undergrounds come up.
He added that being a native of a slum in Effiakuma, Kinaata’s current posture towards ‘boys in the hood’ is not healthy.
Sleeky particularly criticized the manner in which Kofi Kinaata addressed the issue of illegal fishing and irregular migration prevalent in their enclave recently.
The promoter who describes Kinaata as a ‘Stomach Musician’, explained that instead of prioritizing his interest over all others, he should have explained to the organization that the youth are pushed into vices and illegal migration because of the pressures on them due to lack of jobs.
He emphasized that Kofi Kinaata should have campaigned for legal avenues to support the ‘boys’ to set up a business or learn a trade, rather than lambasting them outrightly.
