Kirani Ayat – Ghana Tourism Authority Reach An Agreement Over Copyright Tussle

The copyright infringement battle between Ghanaian music star Kirani Ayat and Ghana Tourism Authority may soon be over as the former has hinted at reaching an agreement with the GTA.

On Wednesday, October 19, 2022, Kirani Ayat announced the new development although he would not give full details yet.

He also took advantage of the opportunity to announce his first live show scheduled for October 20, 2022.

“Good morning everyone, I’ve reached an agreement with the GTA, I’ll issue a statement soon, thank you. My first live show is this Thursday 20th October at @thealleybargh 7PM. Bring your friends,” he tweeted.

On Tuesday, September 27, 2022, Kirani Ayat called out the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo for sharing a campaign which used portions of his creative piece without any prior arrangements.

He wrote;

“The president of Ghana has used my video “GUDA” in this ad to promote Ghana. I was actively reaching out to the Ministry of Tourism in 2018/19 to use this video to push tourism in the North and got NO reply, yet today it’s in an ad and no one reached out to me for permission.”

The tweet, however, did not sit well with the Ghana Tourism Authority which had oversight responsibility of the said promotional video hence leading to a battle of press releases and media engagements.
