Amidst being ganged up and seen as a threat when you express your disappointments on certain arts practitioners relating to their mischievous posturing, highlife musician, K.K Fosu has stated what he thinks is the reason for Madam Catherine Afeku’s failure as Minister for Tourism, Arts and Culture.

The talented musician, KK Fosu, born Kaakyire Kwame Fosu stated that the people around Madam Catherine, who have been very mischievous in dealing with her was her downfall.

“Pure mischief. Most of them are very mischievous. They play good but mischievous,” he stated

Discussing how the Arts industry has fared in Ghana’s 62 years of independence on Kasapa 102.5 Fm’s Entertainment Show with Eddie Ray on Saturday, KK Fosu among other concerns raised said, he was part of the few people who started the Akufo-Addo campaign for President and Okraku-Mantey knows that very well.

“It hurts when you have to sacrifice your all for others to enjoy. As for the president, he is the president for all but are his advisers not sensible enough to think of our next generation and to implement policies and structures so they won’t have to go through same challenges we are going through today than their stomach? They are a hungry bunch of people,” he added

The 2007 “Anadwo Yede” hitmaker, further stated there are more real practitioners with experience to run the ministry than the people being appointed.

He also questioned why the minister will be reshuffled and her deputies maintained.

“Okraku knows much about this industry than Madam Catherine. Okraku knows much about the music industry. Socrates also knows much about the movie industry.

“If not because of backstabbing, why would they have to sack Madam Catherine and leave her Deputies? They need to sack all of them. If you want to reshuffle, reshuffle them all,” he demanded

He, however, called on all who have vested interest in the industry to be real to mother Ghana and always have in mind how the industry and Ghana will be when she turns 100.

Many Musicians Are Receiving GHAMRO Royalties They Don’t Deserve – Rex Omar

The Ghana Music Right Organization – GHAMRO has over the years been faced with its inability to institute a logging system for proper royalty distribution.

 

This challenge has caused an anomaly in the even distribution of royalties collected that is due to the musicians whose properties are currently being used.

Rex Omar, chairman of GHAMRO in an interview with asiwomewrites.com, your credible blog for entertainment and showbiz news, views and reviews explained the challenge is because the logging system is still being piloted.

 

“The problem we are having and encountering at GHAMRO is because we have not started using the logging system in its entirety. A lot of people are receiving monies that are not supposed to and the musicians whose music is currently being used also don’t receive their due,” Rex Omar explained.

 

The Chairman also alleged that the erstwhile Carlos Sakyi administration registered people who received royalties for no registered property which the logging system when fully operational will resolve.

Rex Omar further hinted that GHAMRO is going to face a lot more problems with their next distribution because more musicians will be receiving meager royalties but those whose songs are being used will receive more.

 

He, however, assured members that though the wind of the law grinds slowly, the organization is determined to retrieve an amount of GHC 2,113,803.93 made up of bank transactions and several withdrawals unaccounted for by the Carlos Sakyi, K. K. Kabobo led administration as revealed from the 2012 – 2016 audit reports of GHAMRO.
