CEO of Black AvenueD-Black has fired some shots at GHAMRO over tokens being paid to Ghanaian musicians., known by his stage name
Many a time, we do hear many A Stream artistes complain of the ineffectiveness of GHAMRO, a body which controls the affairs of composers in Ghana.
In an interview on Hitz ‘Hightable’ with Dr Pounds, D-Black noted that amounts paid to them are just tokens that isn’t worth their hustle.
“In 2016 someone called me from there and told me all the A list artiste and producers had 600 cedis each with them so I should send my mobile money number,” he explained.
“That means if Sarkodie releases 10 songs in a year and I don’t, we are all A list artistes we still get the same amount of money, it does not make sense. R2Bees for theirs, they would have to share the 300, 300 instead of being given 600 each. Rubbish!” he said this on Hitz ‘Hightable’ with Dr Pounds.
This is so sad and accounts for the poor conditions of Ghana music.
