Internationally renowned Ghanaian musician Afro Moses has voiced his concerns regarding the royalties that the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) pays to artists in Ghana.
He claims that the income he received from outside the nation enabled him to buy land and construct a home for himself.
The performer revealed that he received royalties from GHAMRO on one occasion in the amount of GH¢100 and again in the amount of GH¢2,000.
Afro Moses chastised Ghamro for the diminutive royalties paid to artists in Ghana during an interview with Asempa FM that was monitored by 1Family Radio.
“I used the royalties I got from abroad to buy land and build a house abroad,’’ Afro-Moses revealed.
“Don’t even raise that issue. If I decided to deal with Ghamro, it would be an issue, so I don’t want to talk about it.’’
He continued, “I was given GH¢100. And another time I was given GH¢2,000, even though I haven’t touched it till now because I’ve reserved it to do something.’’
“With the number of songs that I have played in Ghana, I’m supposed to earn a lot,’’ he said.
