Ghanaian rapper and business mogul, D-Black has questioned the moral rights of the Ghana Music Rights Organisation, GHAMRO for dragging Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, GBC to court over outstanding music user royalties.
GHAMRO is reported to have sued GBC over royalties owed its members since 2012. The court action has received high appraisal from the general public but D-Black believes it is wrong for the copyright organisation to take such move. The musician thinks GHAMRO has failed in distributing royalties to musicians so he cannot fathom why they would take legal action against any individual or group who has also failed to pay them user royalties.
D-Black who recently released his mixtape, ‘Hunger and Thirst’ further accused GHAMRO of not accounting for cash they receive on behalf of right owners.
“How is Ghamro suing GBC for unpaid royalties when Ghamro do not pay musicians their royalties either and do not account for royalties collected on ‘behalf’ of musicians ” Zionfelix.net saw D-Black tweet.
D-Black joins many A-list musicians like Obrafour, Edem and others who have complained bitterly about the peanut GHAMRO distributes to musicians as royalties.
