A number of music stakeholders have called on all agitated members calling for the removal of board members of Ghana Music Right Organisation (GHAMRO) to put a stop to their ‘selfish agendas’ which could undermine the credibility and the progress of the Ghanaian music industry.

The stakeholders have also advised all members to desist from ‘moving from one radio station to the other to attack or make allegations against GHAMRO board and its Chairman, Carlos Sakyi. Those agitated musicians who think they are not satisfied with the board and have enough evidence to support their actions should go to court to seek redress.’

In separate interviews, some of the stakeholders told BEATWAVES that ‘the music industry in Ghana has come of age and we don’t want to waste our time on baseless allegations to tarnish the images of some individuals in the music industry.’

The Chairman of the Association of Music Right Owner Ghana (AMRO GH), C. K Morrison, who called for unity among the industry stakeholders noted that ‘the time has come for all to come together and work towards the progress of the industry to create more job opportunities for the musicians and not to wage war against one another.’

The Chairman of the Veteran Musicians Association of Ghana (VEMAG), Daniel Adjei, noted that the allegations made by a handful of musicians against GHAMRO board and Carlos Sakyi lacked proof, adding, ‘Those making the allegations have failed to provide documentary evidence to support it.’

He added that the industry players must learn to appreciate the contribution of all persons who have contributed immensely toward the development of the Ghanaian music industry.

‘Those fighting GHAMRO board should learn to show appreciation to the good work done because a large number of VERMAG members are satisfied with the good work GHAMRO board members are doing for the industry,’ he lamented.

On his part, Abrekyereba Kofi Sammy, a veteran highlife musician, told BEATWAVES that all individuals within the group should rather embrace peace and not war, adding that Ghanaian musicians ‘will not sit unconcerned for a handful of musicians to disturb the peace the industry is currently enjoying.’

The President of the Music Council of Ghana (MCG), Ekow Micah, also called for a common vision that would enhance unity among those in the music industry.
