Rex Omar, a renowned Ghanaian musician, has taken legal action against fellow veteran highlife musician Akosua Agyapong.
In a letter written by Rex Omar’s lawyers, Akosua Agyapong is accused of making defamatory statements against their client and other executives of the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO).
Rex Omar, who is currently serving as the Board Chairman of GHAMRO, was alleged to be operating unlawfully and without legal authority.
In a recent statement, Akosua Agyapong called upon the office of the Attorney General (A-G) to shut down GHAMRO, claiming that the organization’s license had not been renewed due to court issues.
Rex Omar’s legal team has denied these allegations, labelling them as spurious, false, and unfounded.
They have accused Akosua Agyapong of tarnishing their client’s hard-earned reputation by making malicious and reckless public statements without any evidential or lawful justification.
Rex Omar’s lawyers demand that Agyapong publicly retract her defamatory statements and issue an unqualified apology within 14 days.
They also insist that she ceases making any further malicious and false public utterances against their client.
Failure to comply with these demands could result in legal action, seeking heavy damages against Agyapong.
Rex Omar’s legal team expresses hope for an amicable non-adversarial resolution but emphasizes that they will utilize all available legal means to compel Agyapong to retract her statements and issue an apology if she fails to comply with their demands.
