Ghanaian Dancehall singer Stonebwoy has fired back at the acting president of the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO), Rex Omar for attacking him over his royalties comment.
Recall Stonebwoy a couple of days ago revealed to Ghana’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Papa Owusu Ankoma that the only amount of money he has received from GHAMRO as an artist in his entire music career is just 2000 Ghana Cedis.
Rex Omar who is currently the acting president of the agency quickly slammed the ‘Can’t Cool’ hitmaker over the comment which suggests that the agency is not up to the task and working in the interest of artists in the country.
He stated that the Dancehall sensational is been ignorant about his revelations since he only joined the agency about two years ago. He said the fact that the singer has a big name as ‘Stonebwoy’ doesn’t mean he will receive a huge sum of money since GHAMRO doesn’t deal with artists’ stage names but rather, their original names.
Stonebwoy reacting to the statement by the legendary singer quizzed whether people have to know the real names of artists before GHAMRO will be able to work well for musicians in the country.
Retweet a statement from controversial entertainment pundit and artist manager Mr. Logic on how he thinks the statement from Rex Omar was unfortunate this morning on the ‘Day Break Hitz’ show, Stonebwoy tweeted;
Exactly like how? How many people are supposed to know an artist by their real names for the royalty system to work ? Tell me how many people know DADDY LUMBA’s Real Name.
