The Administrator for the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO), Abraham Adjetey has hinted that the organization will start taking royalties from churches who use music from Ghanaian musicians at their events.
In the past, GHAMRO task forces are seen at major events ensuring that event organisers are paying for the music they’re using. Although churches have been excluded in this exercise, Mr Adjetey, has revealed that they will henceforth, be included.
“We started three years ago. I remember I was in a church service then the task force from GHAMRO entered. They started engaging the church on the need to pay for the musical works they use and then all the members started speaking in tongues and even said one of the Task force members was a demon,” he said in a recent interview.
Mr Adjetey added that they have since started engaging the churches and will commence the exercise soon enough.
