South Africa-based model, Kwen Maye has registered his displeasure with Sarkodie’s use of his image to promote his ‘talent exposure’ without permission.
Sarkodie in a post had invited fashionistas to display their Afro-futuristic concepts in an upcoming music video by his SarkCess Music label, a project which will not be a paid-for but will offer them immense exposure.
Kwen Maye whose image was used on the promotion bill, asked Sarkodie in an Instagram post to do the honorable thing.
[email protected] didn’t ask for my permission or contact my agency @20modelmanagement before using my picture for some cast promo.. I’m aware you don’t like when someone use ur pics without your permission___ please take it down or crop me out___ speaking for myself and don’t know about other models___ this is so wrong___ @ameyaw112 please speak to this guy to get it down____No disrespect, if you don’t accept this from anyone don’t do it to others____ #RespectMyJob I’m not looking for such publicity___ #CropMeOut.” his post read.
