Ghanaian Dancehall and Afrobeat musician, Stonebwoy has expressed disappointment and frustration in the leadership of the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) over the state of the music royalty collection system in Ghana.
Stonebwoy born Livingstone Etse Satekla’s displeasure at the way things are being handled at GHAMRO comes after the leadership were heavily criticized and castigated on Monday at the National Music Summit organized by Charterhouse as part of activities to mark this year’s edition of the VGMA’s by some aggrieved guest at the event.
During the seminar, a showbiz enthusiast Seven Xavier dragged Rex Omar and other executive members present for not performing their duties, and further accused him of blocking people with the technical know-how from helping the organization to achieve its goal.
“It saddens me that they are invited everywhere only to lie and defend themselves. I’m tired of that,” Seven Xavier boldly stated at the seminar.
“They are not doing anything at GHAMRO.”
“About the logging companies that we were talking about, ask them how much is the ‘big money’ they mentioned? Ask them about No Code. They were willing to work with them for about three years without taking money. They worked with Kissseman for six months and kicked them out because they didn’t like transparency,” he stated.
For GHAMRO to work, Seven Xavier suggested: “The first step of resolving the GHAMRO issue is to let Rex Omar, Agya Abraham and Diana Hopeson step aside.”
Reacting to this, Stonebwoy took to his official Twitter page and said that GHAMRO keeps repeating the same excuses and he is tired of their excuses.
“Following the national Music Summit Yesterday. @Ghamro_official keeps repeating the same excuses. We are tired! Uncle Rex and uncle Abraham. Our back is against the wall o..” he tweeted and fired MUSIGA in the same tweet, “and As For The State of #Musigha dier SAD Kwraaah!!”
