Out of fame Ghanaian highlife artiste, K.K Fosu has disclosed that he wants to spearhead the affairs of Ghana Music Rights Organisation(GHAMRO).
According to the ‘Sudwe’ hitmaker, he wants to be the next GHAMRO president.
He made this revelation in an interview on Class FM on Saturday 9th March 2019.
The highlife sensation opined that his main motive of wanting to be the next GHAMRO chairman is that he wants to control the royalties of the organisation to enable the members to get paid well.
“Ghana Music Rights Organisation [GHAMRO] is where I want to be because I really want to take control of the royalties, we [musicians] deserve to be paid, we are not being paid to our expectation because we have poor management at [GHAMRO].”
According to the highlife artiste, GHAMRO must allow artistes to be involved in their decision-making.
“We’ve been complaining on radio on the same issue for years now, they should know that we’re in a new generation, so, they should allow the young ones to take over [the management of GHAMBRO]…
“It’s our [musicians] money, not theirs but they are paid more than the artistes. The last time I received money from GHAMRO was last year and it was just GHS800 for the whole year. We need to get more because our songs are everywhere but the few places that they’re monitoring is the only place they’re getting the money from, if we have this structure that we can monitor our music videos, our music being played on air, the artiste will be paid more. So, we need to know all those things,” he stated.
