Multiple Award Winning Ghanaian Raggae Dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy has revealed the Royalty I have ever gotten from making music in Ghana is GHS2000 after producing all these hit songs.
The Reggae Dancehall Artiste made this shocking revelation to Ghana’s High Commissioner to the UK Papa Owusu- Ankomah. According to stonebwoy, ” The Royalty he has gotten from making music in the country is GHS2000″ He added that he had to file a legal suit against GHAMRO before receiving that penny.
The High Commission to the UK Papa Owusu- Ankomah screamed when Stonebwoy told him the amount he got paid for all his hard work.
Regulated under L.I. 1962 of 2010 to collect and distribute royalties on behalf of authors/composers and other right owners, the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) was established under section 49 of the Copyright Law, Act 690 of 2005.
Like all other copyright societies, GHAMRO is a non-profit corporate body (limited by guarantee) and therefore all fees collected are distributed among the right owners whose works have been used, in this instance composers, authors, and producers, publishers in proportion to the use made of their works.
