Kwame Yogot warns Bawumia and NPP for this reason

Ghanaian rap-singer Kwame Yogot has accused Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia of song theft for using his hit song, “Biibi Besi”, for political campaigns without his consent.

Yogot expressed his displeasure and issued a warning to Dr. Bawumia and his campaign team, urging them to stop using his music.

The musician got to know of this after the said video went viral.

According to Kwame Yogot, he was not aware that his music was being used by the NPP, and that he had not permitted them to do so. He said that he was “very disappointed” by the NPP’s actions and that he felt that they were disrespecting him and his family.

Yogot’s grandfather, James Gyakye Quayson, was the Member of Parliament for Assin North until he was disqualified from office in 2022. Quayson is currently facing a court case challenging his disqualification.

The musician said that, he felt that the NPP was using his music to “stir up emotions” and to “gain political mileage”. He said that he did not support either the NPP or the NDC, and that he did not want his music to be used for political purposes.

He stressed that he had filed a complaint with the Copyright Society of Ghana and that he was considering taking legal action against the NPP.

The NPP has not yet responded to Yogot’s allegatio. Kwame Yogot is known for  several hit songs, including “Biibi Besi” and “Aben Wo Ha”.
