Mark Okraku-Mantey, the Slip Music boss has officially dropped an intended legal suit against Sarkodie for recording a rendition of the late Daasebre Dwamena's song 'Kokoko' without permission.
The Slip Music boss was not happy when he heard Sarkodie's rendition of the classic highlife song, as he was the Executive producer of the original song by Daasebre Dwamena.
Speaking on Hitz FM, the music producer said, "I was in charge of the entire production of the song. I produced the song with Zapp Mallet and Daasebre just provided the lyrics."
He further added, "“I heard the song courtesy of Jon Germain who sent it to me and I think it’s an honour to Daasebre. I am not impressed with the song and I do not know the inspiration behind the making of the song. For all you know, I do not want my song to be associated with certain elements like funeral, alcohol and what have you."
With regards to the law suit, Mark Okraku-Mantey said his decision to sue is on hold as Sarkodie's management reached out to him.
"Sarkodie's lawyers called me over the weekend. Sarkodie himself called me. We've spoken," he said.
When he was asked if he had dropped the suit against suit, he replied in the affirmative, saying, "Yes... We have a meeting within the week and we will discuss further. Whatever happens, I'm sure we will all know."
