Akosua Agyapong Discloses Strategy to Address GHAMRO
Akosua Agyapong Sets Out to Prevent GHAMRO Executives from Attending Akwaboah Senior’s Event with Support from Nima Community. Akosua Agyapong Discloses Strategy to Address GHAMRO if they continue to handle legends like the way they dealt with the late Akwaboah.
In a startling revelation, veteran Highlife musician Akosua Agyapong has made serious accusations against the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO), disclosing her plans to mobilize residents from Nima in order to ensure that GHAMRO executive members are excluded from attending the one-week funeral observation of Akwaboah Senior.
Reporting from worldtrending.com, Akosua Agyapong criticized GHAMRO members for allegedly neglecting the late Kwadwo Akwaboah during his time of need. She expressed her unwavering determination to employ all available means to prevent GHAMRO executives from being present at the event.
According to the singer, GHAMRO executives are purportedly involved in dishonest practices, neglecting musicians who find themselves in dire straits and redirecting a substantial portion of the artists’ royalties for personal gain.
Akosua Agyapong disclosed details from GHAMRO’s 2021 annual report, which indicated that collectors of the organization’s royalties received Ghc 433,000 as commission.
Additionally, the executives allegedly received Ghc132,000 as sitting allowances and refreshments for board meetings.
Citing the case of Kwadwo Akwaboah, who reportedly informed her before his passing that he had received a meager Ghc 250 in royalties, Akosua Agyapong questioned the fairness of such distribution. She expressed disbelief, posing the rhetorical question, “Doesn’t that amount to cheating?”
Driven by frustration over the perceived mistreatment of artists, Akosua Agyapong declared her intention to take drastic measures to ensure that no GHAMRO executive would be able to participate in the one-week funeral observation.
The event is scheduled by the organizers to take place on Tuesday, May 30 in Trede, the hometown of Akwaboah Sr. in the Ashanti Region.
To execute her plan, Akosua Agyapong intends to garner support from the Nima community, a neighborhood in Accra, to prevent GHAMRO executives from gaining access to the event. Her aim is to send a resounding message about the alleged mistreatment of musicians and the imperative need for transparency and fairness within GHAMRO.
These allegations and Akosua Agyapong’s proposed actions will trigger extensive discussions within the music industry and among the general public. The outcome of her efforts to exclude GHAMRO executives from the funeral observation remains uncertain, yet it sheds light on the growing concerns surrounding artist rights and the call for accountability within music organizations like GHAMRO.
