The model sent out a post on Instagram instructing Sarkodie to take down the image he used as a background with Kwen appearing alongside other models.
Kwen insisted the rapper respect his job and cited previously that Sarkodie lashed out at other companies for using his image without his consent.
Kwen says he expected the rapper to contact him and his agency before the images went up on social media. Sarkodie previously lashed out at Charterhouse for using his image without his formal approval.

Copyright laws in Ghana however are not stringent enough for this to hold water or for the rapper to get sued.
Sarkodie has come under severe backlash after the ad he put out instructively said the gig would not be a paid one.
This news did not sit well with creatives who are fighting to get paid for their work and not just gain exposure and experience since that won’t be paying the bills.
Kudos to Kwen for taking a stand in ensuring that his creative genius and that of his agency was not taken advantage of.
