Singer Barima Sidney and his Squade-Yie Entertainment have been sued in a move to prevent the hiplife musician from releasing his video for his controversial song ‘Papa No’.
But the ‘Apuskeleke’ crooner told NEWS-ONE on Thursday that he will go ahead to release the video regardless.
A court document in circulation indicates that one Abdul Ganeru Isaka is seeking a high court to place an interlocutory injunction on the release of the video.
The document popped up on social media days after Sydney announced he was releasing the video on September 3.
“Please take notice that the counsel for on behalf of the plaintiff applicant here in will move this honourable court in an application praying for an order for interlocutory injunction to restrain: the first and second defendant respondent from releasing the said video of the music title ‘Papa No’ to the various media outlets as captured in their promotional artworks.
“The first and second defendants respondent their agents, workmen assigned or any other person acting for or on their behalf for promoting the said video or proceeding to premier or release it.
“And for such further or other order(s) as to this honourable court may deem fit. Upon all grounds stated in the accompanying affidavit. Court to be moved on Wednesday the 2nd day of September 2020 at 9:00 in the forenoon or so soon thereafter as counsel for the plaintiff may be heard,” the writ read.
However, Sidney had said on Thursday that “my lawyers have advised me to go ahead and release the video because I have not been served.”
Prior to the court brouhaha, Sidney had confirmed to NEWS-ONE that he has been receiving death threat messages on his life.
“They are sending text messages to try and silence me. I have received a number of death threats and messages,” he disclosed.
