The leadership of Ghana Music Right Organisation (GHAMRO), a collective society for music right owners, yesterday sounded its readiness to fight persons who are trying to drag the name of the society into disrepute.
Reacting to a letter headlined ‘Need For Reforms At GHAMRO After Two And Half Years Of Operations’ sent to GHAMRO leadership by Bice Osei Kufuor, aka Obour, the leadership of GHAMRO said the letter which was in reference to the transitional provisions in GHAMRO’s constitution, was a calculated attempt by Obour and his cohorts to destabilise the operations of the collective society.
The chairman of GHAMRO, Carlos Sakyi, told BEATWAVES in an interview that ‘I was shocked to read Obour’s letter written to the society on the internet and various social media platforms. It is a disgrace for Obour to have done that with without waiting for GHAMRO’s response. It is sad that Obour’s letter is being circulated on the internet. It will not distract the activities of GHAMRO and its board members.’
He added that instead of Obour to wait for GHAMRO’s response to his letter, he decided to use various social media sites including Facebook to address his concerns raised in the letter, which he said, could rather disintegrate the industry.
The outspoken Carlos stressed that those who masterminded the letter written to GHAMRO by Obour have been found wanting in so many ways, adding that GHAMRO would continue in its agenda of transformation, productivity and accelerated action and give quality support to the suffering music stakeholders and any other right holder in need.
Carlos described Obour’s letter as a deliberate act to destabilise GHAMRO, and warned that GHAMRO would use all legitimate means to resist their chaotic agenda and consign them to the dustbin of history.
He further said since they took over GHAMRO, there have been consistent unjustified attacks on either the board or his image without legitimate basis through the making of false, baseless and irresponsible statements, mostly acts of defamation that have created division in the ranks of music stakeholders.
He continued that within two years in office, GHAMRO had made a lot of progress and it was only the ignorant or those blinded by selfish ambition who saw nothing positive about the gains made.
Carlos expressed worry at the attempt being made by some ungrateful people to destroy GHAMRO. He warned music stakeholders to be wary of those untrustworthy people who are seeking to create division among musicians within the group.
