Rapper and singer Kirani Ayat has responded to the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) after the outfit claimed they sought permission before using elements of ‘Guda,’ in the “Visit Ghana” campaign through a “bespoke creative agency.”

The publication was made by the outfit on September 28 on Instagram.

Reacting to the statement, Kirani Ayat responded to the Authority with a press release.

The rapper reiterated that he had not given any right to the outfit to use his video for any promotional materials.  

“I [Kirani Ayat] have NOT given rights to any agency to use my likeness or work on my behalf.”

The statement went further to highlight the fact that the name of the agency was not revealed by the Ghana Tourism Authority.

It concluded by admonishing the outfit to reveal the name of the agency, along with the signed documents binding the agreement with the Ghana Tourism Authority.

This comes after Kirani Ayat called out the government for using portions of his video, GUDA, for the “Visit Ghana” campaign ad without permission from the rapper nor the music video director, David Nicol-Sey.
