"This is the first and will be the last warning. Next time, you will hear from my lawyers. Please, let's not start dragging ourselves through the mud because I expect so much more from you."

Bra Kwesi Kelvin commented:

Madam, they refused to show their own Country Creator's content because they always think they're doing us a favour. But they rather show yours to drag traffic to their TV station. Please sue them. If you sue them, they will learn how to support their own and make them beneficial to them. That warning is not even necessary. You should've dealt with them straight forward.

Dominique Mcquibe commented:

Madam, be grateful and appreciated. That's your one-way story you're disturbing people.

Kenny Dee commented:
