The Founder of the Anointed Palace Chapel, Rev. Obofour may be in the docks soon.
The management of Ghanaian gospel musician, led by Kofi Donkor, the husband of Celestine Donkor has reportedly sued Rev Obofour for using her song without their consent.
According to Mr Donkor, in 2019, the management of Celestine Donkor raised an issue about Rev Obofour using her song ‘Agbebolo (Bread Of Life)’ to promote his 31st December Watch Night Service without seeking permission from them.
Even though both parties agreed on reaching on any settlement outside the court, the manager of Celestine Donkor in a recent post, Rev Obofour has been unyielding to the earlier agreement.
See his post below:
Dear Rev Obofour,
I write to you not as one of your followers and a beneficiary of your ‘generosity’ but as the executive producer of the song you used to promote your 31st December watch night service WITHOUT permission.
When the police investigator and myself met you in your Achimota office you claimed you were promoting the song and that you have a very large following but sadly you said you have never heard a name Celestine Donkor before. I am surprised at how you can promote a person you don’t know exists but granted.
My team did everything to get you to put on your sense of reasoning but like you got one of your subordinates to tell Akwasi Aboagye on Peace FM when this issue first broke in November, “we can go to hell”.
We are not going to ‘hell’ but we are going to the courts to seek justice. Just so you know, we have a date on Wednesday. But this time it is an order for you to appear before the Criminal Court. This is just for the commencement of the Criminal aspect of your unlawful act. Also, note that the Civil suit will soon commence.
We did everything to get you to address this illegality but you know we are nobodies and so you retreated us with gross disrespect. Justice will prevail. Like they say “the wheel of justice grind slowly”, We shall surely have Justice!
See you in court Sir.
