GTP, the textiles producer at the center of the Sarkodie-Manifest beef, has come out to clarify that the company would not be taking any legal actions against Sarkodie.
In an interview on "Sika Sem", a program which airs on Amansan Television, the Marketing Director of GTP, Rev. Stephen Badu debunked media reports that his company was planning to take legal actions against Sarkodie.
Speaking with the host of the show, Mr. Eric Acquah, the marketing lead of Ghana's leading textile company expressed his shock at the headlines which seemed to suggest that the company would sue Sarkodie.
According to Rev. Badu, he realized that Sarkodie recorded the "Kanta" song in anger and did not mean to bring disregard to the GTP brand.
However, he was quick to add that even though GTP would not be suing Sarkodie, their initial reaction towards that line was indeed a negative one.
"Honestly, we were not happy when we heard of that but we have accepted the apology from his lawyer so for us, that settles it", he said.
He added "I like Sarkodie a lot, I’m his fan so in the beginning when I heard it I was like oh! So is it my favorite person who has done this?’ But the apology from the lawyer settles it".
He continued to speak to the host on the issue, saying, "…I heard him apologize on one of the Accra-based radio stations and that settles it. The apology from his lawyer is very genuine, I wish one of these days he comes to our office for yards of our cloth but then he shouldn’t use it to sew ‘Kaba’. He should use it for a shirt."
