Take legal action against your former managers- Maurice Ampaw advises Joyce Blessing and Eshun
Private legal practitioner Maurice Ampaw has directed Ghanaian female artistes, Joyce Blessing and Eshun, who have both been denied access to their social media handles by their managers to immediately seek legal redress in court.
In an exclusive interview with www.ghanaweb.com, he stated that they both share equal rights to those platforms with their managers.
Eshun and Joyce Blessing are no longer in possession of their various social media handles and YouTube channels after breaking apart with their managers who doubled as their romantic partners.
But Mr. Ampaw reacting to the issue has described both managers as abusive.
He has therefore advised the artistes to quickly put an injunction on their managers to prevent them from having access to those social media platforms.
“I don’t see why the manager will deprive his artiste the right to own the social media platforms. All those females involved should seek legal advice and redress in court and place injunction on their mangers from having access to those social media platforms and for denying them access to it,” he stated.
He added, it is their work that drives attention to these social channels and as such, have every right to access it even after break-up.
“Most at times these media handles have the names of the artiste or brand. In the case of Joyce Blessing, who knows her husband? It’s Joyce blessing’s works that drive traffic and attention to these handles and therefore he cannot deliberately take control and deny her access to them,” the lawyer said.
