The “Killer Cut” sound sampled off “Oye Ohene” remix is not Obrafuor’s intellectual property- Mantse Aryeequaye, voice behind the sound alleges



The plot to Obrafuor’s suit against Drake for copyright infringement thickens.
Chale Wote’s Mantse Aryeequaye, who is the original voice behind the “killer cut” sound which Drake sampled from Obrafuor’s “Oye Ohene” song has come out to claim intellectual ownership.

Mantse responded to the suit against Obrafuor in a series of tweets, detailing how the sound belongs to him and not Obrafuor.

According to Mantse, the sound belongs to him and Obrafuor has no right to claim ownership.

“Hello @RobertFreundLaw, The intellectual property more specifically the ‘KILLER CUT’ sound which was sampled by @Drake in the track “Calling My Name” belongs to Mantse Aryeequaye and not to @iamobrafour …


Hello @Drake the intellectual property more specifically the ‘KILLER CUT’ sound which was sampled in your song “Calling My Name” belongs to me Mantse Aryeequaye and not to @IamObrafuo, Mantse tweeted.

Mantse maintains “intellectual property rights and claim over all my artistic works including the “Killer Cut” sound you sampled off “Oye Ohene” remix used on Obrafuor’s album.”

Directing his tweets at Drake, Mantse revealed “lawyer Kofi Bentil esq. of Lex Praxis Incorporated [email protected] who is pursuing this matter has informed me of a lawsuit against you solely in the name of @IamObrafuor”

He further confirms via the tweets that “I [Mantse Aryeequaye] insist that
although @IamObrafuor has interest in the matter, he is not the owner of the right, and cannot assert it, definitely not alone, or make any demands for sole compensation for its use.


“Drake I wish to convey firmly as owner of the right and request that you consult my lawyer Kofi Bentil [email protected] before you take any steps regarding claims for compensation for the use of the intellectual property of Mantse Aryeequaye. You’ve been notified,” Mantse added.

Meanwhile, Mantse has expressed his disappointment at Obrafuor for his actions.

“Hi Mike @iamobrafour I’m disappointed at your actions. Would be good to tell the public the truth about this matter or I will be forced to lay out how you’ve never paid a dime for any of my works on your songs over the last 20yrs,” he tweeted.

Mantse adds that he has “been trying to get you to meet my lawyers since @Drake released that song. You cannot claim compensation on my intellectual property that you also didn’t pay for. We can revert to what I suggested last year and keep it moving.”


“For the record @iamobrafour filed a law suit to lay claim to my intellectual property without notification. Mike I expect you to tell the truth about this matter or I will,” he concluded.
