Highlife musician, Amakye Dede has accused some officials of the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) of embezzlement of funds.
“There are some selfish people at GHAMRO who refuse to pay musicians the monies they have earned over the years,” he mentioned during and interview on Kessben FM.
“But that’s not how we are supposed to live life because someone has written their songs, and you don’t even know how they came up with the creative piece,” he added.
“You are sitting at the office at GHAMRO to just collect and embezzle their funds which is not nice because one person alone cannot eat for the rest to go hungry,” he lamented.
Abrantie Amakye Dede after accusing the handlers of GHAMRO of squandering monies meant for musicians has appealed to the government to investigate the activities of the organization.
“I will be glad if the government gets involved to help the musicians, because that will be much better than just allowing some few to sit at GHAMRO and just squander the money meant for musicians.”
