T.I.’s Akoo Wins In Two Ways
As mentioned before, T.I.’s prison stint proved to be good for business – especially his fashion line Akoo, which saw a 25% increase in profitability in the last year, according to a company representative.
In another boost for the company, Akoo has been able to keep its trademark based on a recent ruling by a federal judge. T.I’s company name is being contested by media company Akoo International. The suit, however, is still ongoing.
