Veteran Highlife musician and producer Kwabena Nyamekye Amoo-Mensah popularly known as Pat Thomas has revealed that he sued Hiplife musician Tic formerly Tic Tac because the latter’s father disrespected him.
“The father was nice with me before but I didn’t know Tic Tac was going to use my song. I went to his father and told him this is what has happened so what are we going to do? But it seemed to me the father didn’t take the matter seriously. He took it as a normal thing. Then I told him if he is not going to do anything about it then I’m going to take action. Then my lawyer came in”. Pat Thomas said this in an interview with Pure FM in Kumasi monitored by MyNewsGH.com.
“He later called me to settle it but by then I had taken it to court. I think I asked for 50 million but I had only 20 million”, he added.
