The Dakar Court of Appeal will examine several cases involving celebrities this Monday, May 13, 2024. Among the cases listed in the general list of the Court, is the case of the activist and deputy Guy Marius Sagna, the case opposing the rapper Bril to Bouba Ndour and Tfm (future media television) and finally the Range Rover file involving the singer Wally Seck and the former footballer Ibou Touré.

Concerning the first case between Guy Marius Sagna and the gendarmerie and his former boss, General Moussa Fall, the Court of Appeal will overturn or confirm the sentence pronounced at first instance. Indeed, accused of having brought discredit to the national gendarmerie, Mr. Sagna was sentenced to 3 months in prison with a suspended sentence.

Finding this sentence unfair, the activist immediately appealed. As a reminder, it was the public prosecutor who decided to prosecute the deputy for disseminating false news because according to him, Guy Marius Sagna carried false information by accusing the gendarmerie of being in the pay of the former President of the Republic Macky Sal, in a post on Facebook.

Another matter is on the agenda. According to Les Echos, this concerns the case of violation of the right to exploit the work and the moral rights of the author over his work, which pits the rapper Djibril Mbaye Fall alias Bril against the Futurs Medias Group.

After yet another referral, the case will be raised again today, before the same court. It is the artist-singer who is suing the Futur Media Group, Birane Ndour (the CEO), Bouba Ndour (the Tfm program director), and the sponsors Nestlé Senegal and the Pakfood brand.

At first instance, Tfm and Bouba Ndour were ordered to pay Bril the sum of 10 million CFA francs. Bouba Ndour was sentenced to a 3-month prison sentence with a suspended sentence in addition to a fine of 1 million CFA francs for the offense that Bril accuses them of.

Finally, if the case is not returned, the singer Wally Seck, the former footballer Ibou Touré and others will be before the appeal judge in Dakar today. This is the Range Rover affair.
