The Executive Producer for Hallelujah Voices, Kwame Mickey, and dynamic music group, Team Eternity Ghana (TEG) have announced that the impasse that arose concerning the use of ‘defe defe’ in the recent gospel hit song has been resolved. 

This comes after Kwame Mickey alleged that the group had unlawfully sampled Hallelujah Voices’ 2004 song of the same name, written by Osuani Afrifa and produced by Kaakyire Music Productions.

Mickey threatened legal action if Team Eternity Ghana failed to acknowledge the original creators of the song.

However, in a statement by OFM Computer World on July 1, under the signature of Kwame Mickey and sighted by Channel One TV, it was noted that the dispute has been resolved and Team Eternity has the non-extensive right to use the new song, those words derived from the existing song.

“The parties have duly entered into a license agreement under which Kwame Mickey grants to TEG the non-extensive right to use the New Song, those words derived from the Existing Song,” parts of the statement read.

Team Eternity Ghana’s “Defe Defe” song has topped social media charts, garnering over two million views on YouTube since its release on May 1, 2024.

Below is the full statement by OFM Computer World
