Massive Support For Carlos Sakyi, Others

Reports reaching BEATWAVES indicate that over 400 musicians in Accra and some part of the country have pledged massive support for Ghana Music Right Organisation (GHAMRO); a collective society and its executives led by Carlos Sakyi.

According to the reports, the musicians are happy because the executives of GHAMRO have lived up to expectation and its executives, Carlos Sakyi, Amandzeba Nat Brew and K.K Kabobo have all worked tirelessly to put smiles on the faces of GHAMRO members.

BEATWAVES has gathered that the musicians in a resolution adopted after series of meetings held a couple of days ago declared their support for GHAMRO which they claimed had contributed a lot towards the welfare of Ghanaian musicians.

The musicians in a resolution stated that though Nana Kwame Ampadu and 100 others two weeks ago instituted a legal action against the board members of GHAMRO to account for their stewardship, “we fully do not support the court action which is going to create more problems for the industry.”

The musicians noted that they could not be part of any litigation because GHAMRO is being managed by the board on which the President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bice Osei Kuffour serves.

The resolution which was adopted at the end of their meetings stated, “We the undersigned members of GHAMRO demand that the present GHAMRO administration under the leadership of Carlos Sakyi should be maintained because we are satisfied with its good work since it began operation.”

Some of the musicians who signed the resolution included C.K Mann, Amy Newman, Safohene Gyene, Joe Beecham, Obouba J.A Adofo, Teacher Boateng, Asebu Amenfi, B.B Collins, Osei Vasco, Baffour Kyei and a host of other prominent musicians.

The musicians admonished that those agitating for the removal of GHAMRO board should channel their sweat and resources to something more productive which would enhance the beauty of the Ghana music industry and also stop the unnecessary criticism, since “it is not the solution to the numerous challenges confronting the Ghana music industry.”

They believed that the all-inclusive board united in diversity offers the industry its greatest opportunity to bring prosperity to players in the industry, and called on all music right holders to give GHAMRO their maximum support.
