According to an official statement from K'NAAN's camp, he's not too happy about Mitt Romney using the song "Waving Flag" during his campaign. The Somali-Canadian rapper wants to make it very clear that he does not endorse Romney, and he will be taking legal action if necessary.
The statement reads:
A&M/Octone recording artist K'NAAN was dismayed to learn that his song "Waving Flag" was used by Mitt Romney in his speech last night following Florida's Republican primary.
The artist was not aware that the song would be used by Romney and the campaign is not something K'NAAN endorses.
"I have not been asked for permission by Mitt Romney's campaign for the use of my song. If I had been asked, I would certainly not have granted it. I would happily grant the Obama campaign use of my song without prejudice."
K'NAAN is currently seeking legal action so that further use of the song by Romney's campaign can be prevented.
