Ghanaian musician King Ayat calls out the entire Ghana government being led by Akuffo Addo for using his music without his permission.
The President of Ghana H.E. Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo shared a video to promote tourism in Ghana to mark World Tourism Day 2022 on Tuesday September 27.
In the video, which captures beautiful scenes of the country with a VoiceOver by the President, some portions of Kirani Ayat’s music video for his song “Guda” can be seen in the video.
The video which has been shared on Twitter and other social platforms caught musician Kirani Ayat’s attention and he has since called out the President for using his music without his permission.
According to the musician, the President used a portion of his “Guda” video in the ad, even though he reached out for help in the year 2018/2019 and got no reply from the Ministry of Tourism to give him permission to use the said video to promote tourism in the north.

The president of Ghana has used my video “GUDA” in this ad to promote Ghana. I was actively reaching out to the Ministry of Tourism in 2018/19 to use this video to push tourism in the North and got NO reply, yet today it’s in an ad and no one reached out to me for permission. 🤦♂️ https://t.co/vLnAP0bRqf
