Socrates Safo to sue Tinny

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Chief Executive of Movie Africa Productions, Socrate Safo, is lacing

his boots to sue hip-life musician Sexy Tinny over what he describes

as defamatory comments against him in the artiste's newly released

song, 'Socrate Atanfo', News-One has gathered.

"I don't have a problem with the song, but I feel the insults on my

brand and works are defamatory and we all know the laws of Ghana do

not allow defamation.

The song,'Socrate Atanfo', was better produced because of my

criticisms on Tinny.

He wanted to prove he can do a better song than 'Badder Than Them' and

he proved it but asfor the insults on my brand, I will take him on.

But with the personalattacks on me, I will not hit back athim. I know

when he grows, he will realise his childish mistakes. I forgive him so

Ghanaians should also forgive him," Socrate told News-One.

Socrate said though the song did not specifically mention his full

name, Socrate Safo, it was "speaking about a Ghanaian movie producer

by name Socrate who produces bad movies and he used very bad

adjectives and insults on the Socrate he was talking about. Now tell

me, apart from me, which other Ghanaian movie producer goes by the

name Socrate? Tinny even spoke about the Peace FM Entertainment Review

incident between us, so it is clear that the song and insults are

directed at me and my brand."

The back and forth between Tinny and Socrate started on Peace FM about

a fortnight ago when the artiste appeared on the show to promote a

remix of his 'Badder Than Them' track, featuring Jupiter and Edem.

While Socrate thought the new song was put out for a critical and

honest review, Tinny and his management said they brought the song for

promotional purposes.

After the song was played, Socrate said the only thing he could hear

in it was the noise from a "badly played or spoilt accordion".

He also told Tinny to be ashamed for paying the sound engineer for the song.

Tinny, after the show, told News-One: "I suspect Socrate wanted to

provoke me so I come across as a disrespectful person. I got angry but

I controlled myself. He insulted me, rubbished my song and attacked my

brand. This same Socrate did the same thing to Bisa K'Dei about two

weeks ago. But I know my song, 'Badder Than Them', is bigger than

Socrate and God would be the best judge.

"What has the number of children I have and my wife got to do with the

song? He told me in the face that at my age if I have four children,

it means I was giving birth by heart.

He said I am not a role model for his kids. He even said that after

listening to my song, it sounded like noise and that all he could hear

was noise from an accordion and that I should be ashamed for paying

the sound engineer for the song."
