Ghanaian singer Wendy Shay has threatened to sue the producers of ‘Slay’ an African movie streaming on Netflix, for using her song without her permission.
The Rufftown Records signee shared a snippet of the film on her Instagram page and lamented that neither she nor her management was informed her hit song ‘All For You’ was featured in the movie.
“So, I watched this movie last night on Netflix, and my song, ‘All for you’ was featured without my consent or that of my management. Producers of the movie ‘Slay’, it is a crime to use someone’s intellectual property without her consent. Kindly do the needful or I will see y’all in court” she captioned the post.
Produced by Elvis Chucks, Slay features a star-studded cast of African legends which includes Amanda Dupont, Ramsey Noah, Dawn Thandeka, Enhle Mbali, Fabian Lojede, Lilian Dube, Trevor Gumbi, Tumi Morake, Idris Sultan, Leroy Gopal, Joe Kazadi, and Kabomo Vilakazi and Ghanaian actors, Kalybos and Bismark the Joke.
The movie Slay tells the story of girls who prey on older, promiscuous men.
It further sheds light on tales of girls who want to appear as if they come from a wealthy background when they, in fact, are living in poverty. Some say they are merely attractive girls who get given what they want whether they’ve asked for it or not. Or is it simply girls who slay at everything they do. They have the best in everything.
