In June of 2022, Canadian rapper Drake released a song titled, Calling My Name, which appeared as the 6th track of his Honestly, Never Mind album.
Shortly after the release, social media went into a frenzy when it was discovered that a sample of the song used by Drake belonged to one of Ghana’s Hiplife Legends, Obrafour.
When it was revealed that Drake had used a sample from Obrafour’s Oye Ohene remix, fans took to social media to request Obrafour sue Drake.
