Host of Joy FM’s Geeks Squad and Ghanaian beatmaker Kobby Spiky Nkrumah, has called out African football’s governing body, CAF for the use of his work without prior authorisation.
The beats producer has revealed that the football governing body used a soundtrack belonging to him for the promotion of CAF Awards without his permission.
He spoke to AdomOnline last week about the development.
According to Spiky, not even emails to CAF drawing their attention to the infringement on his intellectual property rights prompted the Federation to take the right action.
Mr Nkrumah produces beats under the production name, and has expressly stated under his beats, “If you want to use my beats for commercial purposes, please contact me at Spiky Beats
In spite of the expressly stated conditions for use of his beat, however, CAF has gone ahead with the use of the beats without contacting Mr Nkrumah.
“When I complained to CAF, all they could do was to delete the promotional video from their page,” he told adomonline.com.
Mr Nkrumah has served notice that he would go all lengths to ensure the world is made aware of the infringement on his right.
