Not long ago, Ghanaian rapper, Asem after descending heavily on fellow rapper Sarkodie which according to many on social media did not have much impact, he then switched his torment to Amerado Burner, upcoming rap artiste who has been doing the most with his YeeteNsem Series aside his recent hits.
The YeeteNsem series has received attention and great reactions from the public since the time it was set into motion. Amerado in the series, gives a coverage and summary of all trending news of the week in rap music. His consistency in rhyming and craft, being able to rap in every series no matter the kind of news really amazes Ghanaians. This new initiative by Amerado has received great support.
Asem claimed that he is the copyright owner of “YeeteNsem”. He meant it is his intellectual property so the young rapper should come and seek him for his blessing else he is going to sue him.
It’s to this caution from Asem that Amerado decided to educate Asem on the copyright ownership he was talking about. In a released document posted on his Instagram handle, Amerado and his management responded to Asem’s threat to legal suit.
In the document, it was stated far from what Asem alleged that concepts, ideas, methods and procedures are explicitly excluded from all copyright issues and can’t be registered by Asem or any other person.
It was also mentioned that Asem’s alleged copyright in the form of lyrics, content, beat had not been sampled in the YeeteNsem series by Amerado.
The letter by the management boldly claimed that the review of a news item or event in a rap song is a general concept which no one can claim copyright over. They added two sections of the copyright Act 2005 (Act 690) of Ghana Sections 2 and 22(1) specifically for Asem to be well informed and educated.
