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.
