It was a wrong move for Obrafour to ignore Drake’s email, he might miss out on business opportunities – Arnold.

Ghanaian rapper, Obrafour has been making headlines recently, following his $10 million lawsuit against Canadian rapper, Drake.

Obrafour is claiming that Drake sampled his song ‘Oye Ohene’ without permission, which was featured on the latter’s 2022 album, ‘Honestly, Nevermind’.

However, according to Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo, an entertainment pundit, Obrafour might have missed out on a potentially lucrative business opportunity by failing to respond to emails from Drake’s representatives.

Asamoah-Baidoo made this assertion during an interview on the ‘United Showbiz program, hosted by MzGee, on Saturday, April 22.

Explaining how Obrafour could have benefited from a collaboration with Drake on his song ‘Calling My Name’, Asamoah-Baidoo argued that instead of resorting to a lawsuit, Obrafour could have reached out to Drake and engaged him in a one-on-one conversation to resolve the issue and possibly create a business relationship.

“Let me insist that if indeed Obrafour’s team saw the email and ignored it then that was a wrong move. There is no guarantee that they will win the court case. Number two, you’ve missed an opportunity to actually have some business relationship with Drake. Why waste time and contract lawyers from the US?,” he pointed out

He stated that while he had seen people criticizing Mantse for his public condemnation of Obrafour, the latter had allegedly ignored Mantse’s attempts to reach out to him for 20 years.

“I have seen a lot of people bashing Mantse but the gentleman says he has been trying to reach Obrafour or Hammer for the last 20 years and they never respond to him. So, what do you expect the person to do?…the only part where Manste slacked was his continuous tagging of Drake in his tweets,” he underscored

It remains to be seen how Obrafour’s lawsuit against Drake will unfold as several angles and factors have played out since it was announced that he was suing for copyright infringement.

Neither Obrafour nor his lawyers have spoken out since the news became public a week ago.
