regarding the unauthorized use of DJ Azonto’s hit song “Fa No Fom” by prominent political figures.
Recently, a video surfaced showing Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Vice President of Ghana, dancing to
the track once again, during his political events in the Ashanti Region despite previous demands for a
$10 million compensation.
The video, which has gained widespread attention, also features the regional chairman of the New
Patriotic Party, Chairman Wontumi, and Honorable Kennedy Agyapong, using the song for their
political purposes. This repeated use of “Fa No Fom” without seeking consent from DJ Azonto or his
management is seen as a blatant disregard for intellectual property rights.
In light of these events, the Rolls Royce Family demands an additional $1 billion from each of these
political figures for the unauthorized use of the song.
The management team emphasizes that this is not just about financial compensation but also about
respecting the rights and efforts of artists.

DJ Azonto has previously expressed his intentions and made a promise to reward his mother with a
car as soon as his song is used in political activities, even before the success of the song. However,
despite the repeated use of “Fa No Fom” by Dr. Bawumia and other political figures, no
compensation or acknowledgment has been provided.
We find it deeply troubling that our artist’s work is being used without permission, especially for
political purposes. This not only undermines the value of the artist’s creation but also sets a negative
precedent for respecting intellectual property rights in our industry. The Rolls Royce Family urges Dr.
Bawumia, Chairman Wontumi, and Kennedy Agyapong to address this matter promptly and provide
the necessary compensation for the unauthorized use of “Fa No Fom.”
The management team remains open to dialogue to resolve this issue amicably but insists that
appropriate measures must be taken to rectify this ongoing infringement. We urge music bodies like
the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) to advocate for and protect the rights of musicians
in such matters.

I Won’t Attend TGMA Again If They Keep Awarding Musicians Over 10 Years – Dj Azonto

Renowned Ghanaian musician, DJ Azonto, has made a bold declaration regarding the Telecel Ghana Music Awards (TGMA).

In a recent outburst, DJ Azonto expressed his frustration over the event’s trend of awarding musicians who have been in the industry for over a decade, neglecting the rising stars who are making waves and pushing boundaries in the music scene.

DJ Azonto minced no words in his critique, stating, “I will not attend TGMA again if they keep giving awards to old men who can’t buy their mum a jet.”

His dissatisfaction stems from a belief that the awards which is aimed at promoting Ghana music and talents should recognize and inspire the youth who are the future leaders, rather than giving such awards to those who he feels have already had their time in the spotlight, including Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy etc.

According to DJ Azonto, these seasoned musicians no longer have anything to prove to the younger generation and TGMA has become the yardstick for them so they can’t keep competing on the global market since they already feel comfortable winning TGMA.

He emphasized that most of these veteran musicians have started to perform at Senior High Schools (SHS) and kindergartens, taking money yet offering little inspiration or value in return.

“They aren’t inspiring the upcoming youth like Davido, Burna Boy, and others,” he remarked, highlighting the need for fresh, dynamic influences in the industry.

DJ Azonto’s grievances extend beyond the awards themselves.

He pointed out the importance of recognizing new talent that resonates with the youth, who are the future of the music industry.

By continuing to honor long-established artists, he argues, the TGMA is failing to support and nurture the next generation of musicians and the growth we expect to see in the Ghanain music.

DJ Azonto added that key elements need to be addressed for the awards to regain their relevance and impact. He calls for the inclusion of awarding new gems Artists Of The Year over veteran artists which will further push the older musicians to keep fighting extra and pushing more in the international market for the younger ones to follow.
