K Naan - Mitt Romey
The Somali born,canadian-based Rapper K'Naan is upset that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney used his song "Wavin' Flag" during his Florida primary victory speech.
In a statement released Wednesday, K'naan says Romney's campaign did not seek approval to use the song and that he would not have granted permission if he had.
The rapper says he would happily grant President Barack Obama's campaign the use of the song.K'Naan says he wants to make sure Romney does not use his song again and he is seeking legal action.
Romney spokesman Rick Gorka says the song was used through the campaign's regular blanket license but, out of respect for K'Naan's statement, it won't be used again.
"Wavin Flag" was an international hit for K'Naan in 2010, co-written and co-produced by Bruno Mars' production team, The Smeezingtons.
