Gasmilla’s hit song “Telemo” has been re-recorded with lyrics into a campaign song purportedly for NPP flag bearer Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, raising questions about the musician’s political leanings, Adomfmonline.com reports.
But Gasmilla, known in private life as Milla Joseph Odartey Lamptey has told Adom News he has no idea who stole his tune and put NPP campaign lyrics on it.
He said his management will take legal action against anyone who uses his tune for other purposes without his knowledge.
Adom News reached Gasmilla’s Manager, Esther Konadu Gyan and she confirmed that no one has sought permission to use the song, and vowed to take legal action against the perpetrator(s).
“If we find out the person is linked to any political party we will seek the assistance of that party to get to the person and ensure he faces the full rigours of the law,” she said.
Meanwhile, the National Organizer of the NPP, John Boadusays the party has nothing to do with the conversion of Gasmilla’s “Telemo” into an NPP campaign song.
“But if we decide to use Gasmilla’s song for the 2016 election we will use the right channels and make a formal announcement,” he added.
