The controversies surrounding GHAMRO seems to heighten each and every day as further allegations are being leveled against the Chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO), Rex Omar and his executives as being corrupt.
Ghanaian gospel artiste Nicholas Omane Acheampong has reacted to the manner in which royalties are being distributed to the musicians who happen to be members of this organization. He objectively expressed his disappointment on Happy FM’s Showbiz Xtra with Doctar Cann and stated, “I have about twenty-two albums since 1992 published by promise record which I update frequently. Recently I received GH₵1,000.00 on my mobile money account from GHAMRO but was astonished after communicating with another artiste and realized he was paid GH₵1,500.00 for ten albums.”
“It is not the meager amount they pay to us as royalties that sustains us but in all dignity and self-respect and to avoid disparaging comments being made against them on any platform, GHAMRO should do the right thing. Besides the money does not belong to them.”
For the time being, the Ghanaian artistes are definitely not happy about the way royalties are being handled by this current administration.
Gospel musician, Nicholas Omane Acheampong, has been in the music industry for over years now, with good songs from his camp, and has won many awards to his credit due to his hard work in the music industry.
