Rex Omar who is the president of the Ghana Music Rights Organization(GHAMRO) has disclosed that veteran musician Akosua Agyapong was behind the recent happening of Ama Rasta causing chaos at GHAMRO’s premises.
Recall that musician Ama Rasta rained curses on GHAMRO over unpaid royalties.
Reacting to the embarrassing happening by the musician, Rex Omar in an interview on Happy Fm disclosed that disgruntled Akosua Agyapong was the mastermind behind the occurrence.
“Akosua Agyapong was the mastermind behind this occurrence. I was present at GHAMRO’s office when Ama Rasta agreed to wait for a while to be settled. However, sometime after she had agreed, she had the media with her at the premises of GHAMRO showing clearly that this was staged”. Rex Omar told Dr Cann in an interview on Happy FM monitored by browngh.com.
According to him, Akosua Agyapong along with her followers are doing all they can to destroy GHAMRO’s image.
He furthered that this was as a result of their frustration of not being able to set up a rival organization that will take money for musicians.
“Akosua Agyapong and her team formed a rival organization which they hoped will be approved by the Attorney-General. But it was the opposite and now all she does is to take her frustrations from one radio station to the other, destroying the image of GHAMRO”, he added.
Rex Omar, however, admitted that GHAMRO faces difficulties in the distribution of royalties to musicians either because some musicians who take their monies through mobile money have outstanding debts to their service providers or they simply provide numbers that are no longer in use.
Nonetheless, he is of the view that GHAMRO will improve the distribution system by introducing a logging system that will make distribution easier.
