Really? Kwaw Kese’s manager says he’s recieved death threats over Ghana Music Week



fenec okyereWhat started as a mere quarrel between the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) and Mad Time Entertainment on who has legal right to organize the Ghana Music Week (GMW) Festival, is getting out of hand as Fennec Okyere reports he has started receiving death threats.

“I have received calls from people who threaten me with death and ask me why I am worrying Obour over this Ghana Music Week thing and whether I do not know this is big money business,” Fennec, told NEWS-ONE and said he was on his way to get the police involved.

“I know how to go about taking care of my security; and I am not taking chances at all. I have to report the threats to the police because we are all in this industry and I hear a lot of things,” Fennec added.

Fennec Okyere, manager of Kwaw Kese, a music maestro, insists MUSIGA is perpetuating an illegality by organizing the Ghana Music Week Festival and even soliciting for sponsorship for the event when the Union is aware it does not own the brand name or franchise.

“We have incorporated the name Ghana Music Week as our company name and we have also registered Ghana Music Week Festival as our product. Kwaw Kese and I are 50-50 owners of the company and we have all the legal backing to prove it…

“Obour, myself and Kwaw were all summoned to the Registrar- General’s Department and they were told by the arbitrator there that MUSIGA cannot use the name GMW. He further told them that if they wanted to use the name, they had to negotiate with us first. But for some reason, they are now calling it GMW Festival. What does the GMW mean?” he queried, adding that he had not given MUSIGA permission to use the brand name under any condition.
