There is now a controversy that has ensued over who owns the soundtrack of a song former president John Mahama sang at the National Democratic Congress (NDC) party elections in mid-November.
The song "Borborleborbor" has suddenly become popular song and the success has forced two men claim that they fathered the song.
Starrfmonline.com reports that one Pastor Isaac Sie claims the song is originally his brainchild. Earlier, the song was attributed to a Christian evangelist, IK Aning.
Sie claims that Borborleborbor was a song he composed and made many years ago. He was however not specific as to when the song was released.
Sie narrates that he has been challenged by Evangelist Aning to prove he (Sie) is the rightful owner of the song.
Sie is quoted as saying: "In fact I have had an encounter with the evangelist and he told me that I can’t do anything to him because I don’t have anybody to help me.
But I have the document to show anyone who will be willing to help me. He said it in presence of my lawyer; he didn’t know he was a lawyer."
However responding to the allegation, Evangelist Aning dismissed the charges, noting he has enough people to back his claim of ownership to the song.
The evangelist also said the NDC has contacted him for compensation for the use of the song. For him, it was a signal that he is recognised as the legitimate owner of the song.
