Dubai Authorities Request Rapper Amerado To Pull Down Cover Art For New Single
Dubai Taxi Corporation, a subsidiary of Dubai Roads and Transport Authority has asked Ghanaian rapper Amerado to pull down art covers for his new single Taxi Driver.
This, according to the corporation is due to the inappropriate usage of DTC assets.
A message sent to the musician and shared via social media reads;
“We would like to inform you that DTC’s assets cannot be used in any communication material without prior approval and the ad also must be relevant to our services otherwise, our material cannot be used. You are kindly requested to delete any images/videos that include DTC’s material from all platforms as your Ad is irrelevant to our services.”
Amerado, who recently visited the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) took advantage of the visit to shoot a music video to a new single Taxi Driver.
He, however, used the official logo of the Dubai Taxi Corporation as official cover art, something the corporation finds inappropriate.
As a response to the request, Amerado in a post stated the official art cover for the song has been changed. He also revealed information has been sent to all online stores to commence the replacement of the art cover.
