Rex Omar Threatens To Sue Akosua Agyapong

Lawyers of Rex Omar, have written to veteran highlife musician Akosua Agyapong to retract and render a public apology to him over alleged defamatory statements she made about him or risk being sued.

In a letter, Rex who is the board chairman of Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) said Akosua Agyapong on different media platforms allegedly called him a thief and that he embezzled GHAMRO funds.

According to him, she made the malicious statements without proof.

“Upon our Client’s assumption of office and to date, you have on several radio and television stations and other media platforms with wide coverage in Ghana, made spurious, false, and unfounded claims against our Client and other Ghamro Executives. Without any evidential and lawful justification, you have described our client, the members of the Ghamro board, and the Chief Executive Officer, Abraham Adjetey as criminals and thieves,” the legal team indicated.

“On 23 December 2022, you granted an interview on a television programme called, ‘Time with the Stars’ in Twi which posted on oneLarry Bozzlz’s Facebook page where you stated that our client and some GHAMRO executives are embezzling GHAMRO funds.

You also granted an interview to One Captain Smart on Onua TV, which interview was posted on YouTube on 22 March 2023 where you falsely stated that our Client together with GHAMRO executives are Embezzling GHAMRO funds and thus are thieves.

“On 25 May 2023 in an interview on Power Fm, you repeatedly called our Client a thief for stealing GHAMRO funds. Further, in the interview, you falsely alleged that our Client has stolen items belonging to his brother-in-law, without lawful justification or proof,” it added.

Rex Omar’s legal team denied the allegations, indicating it was a ploy to tarnish Rex’s hard-earned reputation.

The lawyers, therefore, demand that Akosua retract her defamatory statements and render 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 resuEntertainment lt in legal action, seeking heavy damages against her.
