The CEO of Lynx Entertainment, Richie Mensah has said that the media is not a courthouse. This is due to a law suit by Oduma Essan against Kuami Eugene.
Ghana-based Nigerian artiste, Oduma Essan has sued Kuami Eugene for copying certain parts of his song. The song in question is “Show Body” and both artistes have a song with the same title.
According to Richie, the only similarity between the songs is their title. In an interview with Doreen Avio, Richie Mensah said, “Anyone who listens to the two songs will see that there is no similarity whatsoever. The only thing that is similar about the two songs is that, they are both called Show Body.”
Richie Mensah further questioned why Oduma took his case to the media while the case was already in court. He asked, “What business has this got to do in the media? When somebody is suing somebody for a house or somebody is fighting over land ownership, do we come on the media to speculate on who is right or wrong?”
Richie goes further to say that Oduma Essan is just seeking attention since he did not not use the right means to channel his grievances. Going to the media will in no way solve the issue. This is because people would only speculate about who was right or wrong. It could even bring about some unnecessary conflicts.
The CEO also says that there is no case. “So this artiste has taken it to court, and our lawyer sent everything to show them that this case makes no sense. So, it is up to the court to decide. You can go on Kuami Eugene’s IG or goggle Son of Africa tracklist, and you will see it was released a month before they released their song. So, there is no case.”
