Ghanaian rapper, Nana Kwaku Okyere Duah, famously known as Tic Tac, has explained why he sued Wizkid for $82,000.
According to the rapper, suing the Nigerian artist was not for monetary gain or to trend, as some social media users have suggested, but to protect his intellectual property right.
“I don’t feel good about trends. I feel good about what I stand for, and what I stand for is protecting my intellectual property as well as protecting what is me. If doing that will make you trend, so be it! I like the fact that I’m trending but I don’t like it that I may sue somebody before I trend," he said in a recent interview.
He further claimed that the decision to sue Wizkid for laying claims to his ‘Feet na Efe’ song, which he did with Tony Tetuila, did not come to him so easily.
“It’s something that musicians wouldn’t like to really do. It’s something that may let you lose some fans and may let you gain some fans. It’s a 50/50 thing. It’s not something that you wake and say you’d wanna do. But when it gets to the point that you have to do it, then you obviously have to do it,” he stated.
