UPDATE: THE SARKODIE & CO DEFAMATION OF KROBOS SAGA, AND WHERE WE HAVE REACHED SO FAR IN SEEKING JUSTICE FOR KROBO AND ITS CITIZENRY

 
Unedited Press Statement by Kloma Hengme (The eye of the Krobo land)
__________________________

On Wednesday June 14, 2017, Krobos led by the Kloma Hengme Association, took a bold and major step to fight one of the age-old albatrosses which have been hanging on the neck of the Krobo nation for centuries now__ A continuous defamation and denigration of Krobos & Krobo women as a result of an alleged and unsubstantiated curse by one Okomfo Anokye.

On the said Wednesday June 14, 2017, a ''NOTICE OF INTENTION TO SUE'' was served to Sarkodie and two others over the role they played in denigrating, assassinating and corroding the image of Krobos and Krobo women through a new song they composed ''Jennifer Lomotey''.

In the aforementioned legal document, We were demanding 6 reliefs. We gave Sarkodie and Co ONE WEEK ULTIMATUM to respond to those reliefs or they will meet us in court.

In response to our ultimatum, the legal team of Sarkodie, Kaywa and Kurl Songx met with Kloma Hengme on two Consecutive occassions. The first one was 6 days after the ONE WEEK ultimatum (Tuesday June 20, 2017). And the second meeting also took place on Wednesday June 28, 2017. Both meetings took place at the Errata Hotel, Accra.

The Konor of Manya-Klo, Nene Sakite II, at both meetings delegated his State Linquist; Otsame Narh Huapoyu II, and another Krobo Stateman; Joseph Tetteh, to be part of both meetings at Accra.

It is important to note that at the Second meeting on the Wednesday June 28, 2017, both Sarkodie and Kurl Songx, and their Personal and Events Managers took part in the meeting. Their Lawyers argued that their presence at the Meeting ''Is a sign of Humility and Respect to the Krobo people''.

Our lawyers are Dr Kwadwo Appiagyei-Atua; an International Human Rights Lawyer and Senior Law Lecturer of the Law faculty of the University of Ghana, and another associate lawyer, Lawyer Faroukh Seidu of Ibada Chambers, Accra.

The Lawyer for Kurl Songx (Kelvin) & Kaywa is Nana Fredua Agyemang.
And the lawyer for Sarkodie is Cynthia Quarcoo, a lady.
_____________
*BRIEF DETAILS OF THE TWO MEETINGS*

In summary, at the end of two meetings they convened with us, they said they cannot apologize to us Krobos publicly.
They said that as much as they are willing and as hard as they have tried, they dont think they will be able to meet our demands and that should not to mean that they are being disrespectful to the Krobo people.

They stated emphatically that apologising would mean that they have accepted the accusations levelled against them as being right. They also said that accepting to do our bidding could pave for the way for us to make further demands...and that ''Meeting our demands would be tantamount to stifling creativity''.

Music, they added, was supposed to, among other things, raise societal issues for discussion and that is all their clients had done.

They believed that their clients had not infringed on any laws being it defamation or discrimination.

They further added that there is no way they could expunge the lyrics because a lot of investment had gone into the song and as such meeting our demands would only cripple the new artist.

They said the best they could do, would be to state that defamation was not the intention of the track, and apologise to the Kloma Hengme and Krobo representatives at the meeting, and not a public apology as we wanted.

KLOMA HENGME LAWYERS

Our Kloma Hengme lawyers however kicked against the ''Close door apology'' they preferred to render. Our Lawyers argued that the song had been heard beyond the walls of the room (where the meeting was being held) and so no closed door apology would be accepted.

They (Our lawyers) also stated as much as creativity had to be respected, there had to be a limit on what could be considered as creativity, and issues of this nature cannot be counted as ''creativity''.

Our Kloma Hengme lawyers concluded that since the image and dignity of the krobo people was tied to the song, and since they had taken an entrenched position, we were left with no choice than to pursue the case in court.

OUR STAND, THE LEGAL FEE AND OTHER MATTERS

The stand of Kloma Hengme still remain the same and has not changed: KROBOS HAVE BEEN DEFAMED IN THEIR SONG. WE WILL SEEK FOR JUSTICE AT THE COURT OF LAW. WE HAVE A CASE. AND JUSTICE WILL BE SERVED KLOMA.

The case in question, as we all know, is a high profile case. And as such the legal fee involved is a very huge one than we anticipated.

The association is currently doing everything possible to raise the legal fee to seek justice for Krobos, Krobo nation, Krobo women, our children and progeny.

This is for our information.
