International award-winning music producer, John Mensah Sarpong, has warned board members of the Ghana Music Right Organisation (GHAMRO) to desist from using the old GHAMRO list to distribute royalties to its members.
The music producer and former chairman of the Ghana Association of Phonographic Industry (GAPI), with over 30 albums to his credit, disclosed to BEATWAVES in an interview that the old GHAMRO list is riddled with a number of ghost names, ‘therefore the GHAMRO board cannot use the old list of membership to distribute the royalties.’
The winner of the Best African Gospel Music Contributor of The Year 2012 mentioned that for GHAMRO to avoid causing any financial loss to the music industry, the list of its membership has to be thoroughly reviewed to prove their credibility.
Though he commended the board for putting in measures to bring sanity into the music industry, he, however, warned that the GHAMRO board members would be robbed of their peace should they refuse to heed to the wise advice coming from some of them.
