Their letter follows an earlier press statement released, where they demanded the song be edited to remove the section they found to be derogatory to the women of Krobo.

A lyric in the song, which also features rapper Sarkodie, says “Krɔbɔ nii baa papa a ahweneɛ da ne sisi. Ɔkɔmfo Anɔkye de adwaman no abɔ ne dua”.

This apparently translates to “A good Krobo lady with beads around her waist. Okomfo Anokye has cursed her with promiscuity,” which is a reference to an old story of the Ashanti priest Okomfo Anoyke cursing a group of Krobo girls after they had seen him naked by a river.

In the letter which was sighted by Cit FM, the group gave the artiste and his management one week to fulfill their list of demands or face legal action.

Among these demands include the removal of the lyrics the group found offensive or ban the song completely; a written letter of apology to the Chief and people of the Krobo Traditional Area for using defamatory words against them as well as issuing a full statement pledging to never repeat such actions again.
