Sauti Sol To Sue Raila Odinga Over Breach Of Copyright

Award-winning Music group Sauti Sol has threatened to sue Raila Odinga and his political outfit Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance for using their song without prior approval during the unveiling of Martha Karua as Raila’s running mate.

In a statement released on Monday, May 16, the boy band argued that Azimio used their song ‘Extravaganza’ without their permission noting that it was a blatant breach of copyright.

“We did not licence this song to the Azimio la Umoja campaign neither did we give any consent to it’s use in the announcement of their vice-presidential candidate. Furthermore our authority to use the composition, which is one of our most distinct compositions was neither sought nor given. This is blatant copyright infringement as directed by Section 35 CAP 170 of the Copyright Act of Kenya,” read part of their statement.

The group which expressed their disappointment with the Azimio la Umoja campaign’s blatant disregard of their right to control the use of their copyright vowed to seek legal redress.

“We Shall be seeking legal remedy for this clear violation of our copyright,” Sauti Sol in their statement.

They further stressed that they were not affiliated to any political party.

“This action is a flagrant disregard of our basic and fundamental rights to property and freedom of association.”
