Andy of mentor 1 fame recently claimed that Ofori Amponsah’s comeback song ‘Alewa’ is a copyrighted song he composed.
“Ofori Amponsah stole my ‘Alewa’ song” he disclosed to Sammy Flex on Pluzz FM Tuesday, that he was advised to feature a popular high life singer to sing the chorus but according to Andy, he thought of featuring his colleague Okuraseni Samuel but later called Ghanaian High Life artiste, Kofi Nti, who urged him to change some lyrics in the songs which he refused.
He said all efforts to get Kofi Nti to feature on the said song proved futile, so Andy recorded and mastered the song and handed it over to his producer.
Andy also revealed that Kofi Nti later called on phone to have a discussion with him but could not turn up until he heard Ofori Amponsah release similar song with the same titled ‘Alewa’.
Kofi Nti’s respond to the allegation still insists he had never given out lyrics of Andy’s ‘Alewa’ song to Ofori Amponsah but only advised him to change some portion of the song. Listen to Andy’s version below.
