Recent tensions have emerged between two prominent figures within the industry, Akosua Agyapong and Rex Omar, in relation to the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) and the unfortunate passing of Kwadwo Akwaboah Snr, the father of Akwaboah Jnr.
Rex Omar, a respected Ghanaian highlife singer who also serves as the chairman of the interim management committee of GHAMRO, has voiced strong criticism towards Akosua Agyapong, accusing her of spreading fabricated stories with the intent to tarnish GHAMRO’s reputation.

These allegations stem from Akosua Agyapong’s claims that the GHAMRO leadership neglected to provide financial assistance to the late Kwadwo Akwaboah when he required support to cover his medical expenses.
In a recent interview on Adom FM, Akosua Agyapong revealed that she had received a call from Kwadwo Akwaboah about three months prior to his death.
During the conversation, Akwaboah lamented about how Abraham Adjetey of GHAMRO had sent him a meager GHC250 for medical bills.
The renowned musician, known for his hit song ‘Kokooko,’ expressed strong disapproval of the gesture, considering it highly condemnable.
He did not hold back in criticizing the leadership of GHAMRO, headed by Rex Omar, for their poor performance.
However, Rex Omar, in a Facebook comment on Saturday, May 20, 2023, referred to Akosua Agyapong as the biggest liar.
He expressed his bewilderment as to why she chose to talk about the deceased’s alleged plight only after his death.
He explained by saying, “Akosua is the biggest liar! So why didn’t she speak about it till now that the man is dead? We have no such records in our welfare books. Kwadwo was a very proud man and will never say any such thing to anyone.”
The crooner added by saying, “During his (Akwaboah Snr) entire years of sickness, it’s only once he ever asked for assistance from Ghamro and when he did, Ghamro welfare led took him to the hospital in their vehicle to meet his doctor and there was no money paid to Kwadwo himself but to the hospital. Records are there to prove this, Kwadwo is dead so now all of a sudden Akosua has become his spokesperson? She should shut up with her fabricated stories and allow the man rest in peace.”
