Ghanaian Highlife artiste K.K. FOSU has revealed his intention to become the next chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Organisation(GHAMRO).
He stressed out about how he wants to control the royalties of the organisation to enable members to get well-paid by becoming the Chairman of the organisation.
“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”he stated.
According to the Highlife artiste,GHAMRO must allow artistes to be allowed in their decision-making.
“We have been complaining on radio on the same issue for years now, they should know that we are in a new generation,so,they should allow young ones to take over the management of GHAMRO”
“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 Ghc800.00 for the whole year.We need to get more because our songs are everywhere but the the few places that they are monitoring is the only place they are 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 added.
