A Kumasi-based Gospel musician, Evangelist Michael Antwi has accused Kwame Yogot and Kuami Eugene of plagiarizing his song “Biibi Besi”.
Speaking to Akoma FM’s Tony Best on Kwantenpon Drive, Evangelist Michael Antwi said he released his song in September 2020 while Kwame Yogot released his in February 2021.
According to the Evangelist who is also popularly known as ‘Condemn’, he can’t claim ownership of the coinage of the term “Biibi Besi,” however he was the first to have put it on a rhythm hence his intellectual property.
“I released my Biibi Besi in September 2020 and Kwame Yogot’s release was just February, 2021 and that’s a clear indication that he copied mine,” he said.
“The Biibi Besi runs through my song and if anyone uses that in another song, it means that my rights to the song have been infringed upon and if proper negotiations between myself and Kwame Yogot’s management are not met, I will have no choice than to take him and his management to the appropriate quarters because I have registered the song under Copyright,” he added.
