Sarkodie, a rapper from Ghana, has been called to testify in front of the Accra High Court regarding a Kantanka Automobile marketing.
The rapper was due to appear before the Court to give an account on a case between Jude Osei and Kantaka Automobile on 13th June 2021, However, he failed to appear before the court.
The lawsuit was filed by Jude Osei against Kantanka Automobile and its CEO, Kwadwo Safo Jnr in May 2019. This was after the company did not honour a promise it made to some Twitter users to promote its brand.
According to the plaintiff’s writ, he received a private message from Kantaka Automobile that asked him to share an image of a Kantaka Automobile car on Twitter. His writ further indicated that if his promotional tweet gained 30,000 retweets, he would be given a Kantanka Mensa automobile.
However, after his tweet reached the required number, the company did not honour the promise.
Sarkodie’s involvement in the case is because he is purported to have joined the promotion by sharing images of Kantanka automobiles.
The plaintiff, therefore, wants him to share his views on the promotion of the brand as, to him, it influenced a lot of Ghanaians to participate.
In an interview on Akoma FM‘s Entertainment 360, Jude Osei disclosed that Sarkodie has been subpoenaed to testify before the Accra High Court or the Court will issue a bench warrant for him.
“Sarkodie was previously subpoenaed by my lawyer on the 13th June, 2022 but failed to honour the court’s invitation. Another invitation has been sent to him to appear before the Court on the 21st June, 2022.”
With regard to what will happen, if Sarkodie fails to show up for the second time, the Jude said: “It is up to the court to decide the next line of action and most likely there will be a court warrant for his arrest.”
