Wode Maye calls out Anas Aremeyaw Anas over copyright infringement –
Popular Ghanaian YouTuber Wode Maya called out Anas Aremeyaw Anas on Twitter after the investigation journalist shared a sneak peek of his latest expose.
The expose which is set to premiere at the Accra International Conference Centre on 14 and 15 November, 2022, bothers on illegal mining activities that have destroyed water bodies in some parts of the country.
The content Anas shared on social media to promote the public viewing event contains footage of a galamsey site captured by Wode Maya some 5 years ago.

“Big man Anas! Is that my shot? Did this amateur galamsey content 5 years ago!”

It would be recalled that Ghanaian musician Kirani Ayat also called the government over a similar incident last month after the Ministry of Tourism used portions of his music video “Guda” for promotion without his consent or giving him due credit.
After a back and forth, his team and the state reached a settlement.
