RuffTown Records CEO, Ricky Nana Agyemang, popularly known as Bullet, has accused his former partners in Ruff n Smooth of selling their songs without his knowledge.
According to Bullet, who formed the Ruff n Smooth duo with Ahkan, their manager, Theophilus Baah, who is also a brother to Ahkan, informed him in 2015 that some people were interested in using their song for a movie soundtrack in America.
Though he did not hear anything about the deal again, Bullet claims to have just realised the movie features some of their songs without his permission or a legal contract.
In a social media post, Bullet shared a trailer of the movie claiming his former partner's brother had taken a huge amount of money.
Feeling disrespected and cheated, Bullet indicated his intentions to seek justice and thus asked people to proffer solutions.
"I feel so disrespected and cheated. Two people cannot create music for one party to silently sell the music and take the money without the knowledge of the other. I need HELP, I want justice. Maybe social media can help me," Bullet wrote.
After Bullet's post, YEN.com.gh reached out to him and he confirmed it was not just one song but three of his songs that were used in the movie titled, Everything But A Man.
The songs, according to Bullet, were Shabba, Beautiful, and Not What You Think.
Bullet's post got some interesting reactions from his followers.
@lord_carter said: "I think you should grab a copy of the movie, read the credits, and contact everyone responsible for putting this movie together – from the director to the producer. If they don’t comply, an entertainment lawyer is what you need."
@mabelmettle advised: "Please consult your legal team about this. They can advise better on the way out."
