Singer of popular gospel song “Bobolebobo”, Evangelist I K Aning, has revealed that the opposition National Democratic Congress has compensated him with a Honda Accord car for using his song without prior notice.
The gospel musician demanded compensation from the NDC after his popular song was used to climax the National Democratic Congress (NDC), 9th Delegate congress in Accra in 2018.
He told Hitz FM’s Andy Dosty the NDC party honoured their promise to him after he met over the issue.
“I told the NDC leadership that once I’m still doing the work of God they should help with any resource that can facilitate God’s work.
“I’m not a politician and I haven’t given any of my songs to any political party to use for their campaign. It is a privilege that they took my song and after meeting them, they gave me a Honda Accord. I don’t even know the model.
“There was no cash added to the car gift. They only donated a car to me and no money was added.” Evangelist Anning told Andy Dosty of Hitz FM
According to him, the party leadership can consider showing more appreciation if their evaluation after using the song is impressive.
“If their assessment proves that the ‘Bobolebobo’ song has contributed greatly to their campaign, then I will advise them to consider showing more appreciation.
“I didn’t tell them I needed a car. I had a discussion with them [NDC] and told them my problem and they suggested giving me money to solve the issue but I told them that the money won’t help. I told them to consider a gift that will last for long so they did the needful by giving me the unlicenced Honda Accord. I was using an old Renault car so I was content with the Honda Accord gift.” Anning added
Anning in 2018 called on Former President John Dramani Mahama to compensate him for adopting his beat and words in the making of the Mahama version of the song.
His demands follow the use of ‘Bobolebobo” in a campaign song for the former president that was played to climax the National Democratic Congress (NDC), 9th Delegate congress in Accra.
According to him, he has not consulted in the making of the Mahama version of the song and that the singer violated the copyright laws, hence the need to pay him some royalty.
