One of Ghana’s female highlife musicians, Akosua Agyepong, who is also the Vice President of the Music Council of Ghana (MCG), has called on all musicians in the country to unflinchingly support the Council and promote their good works since it (MCG) belongs to all musicians and not for a selected few.
She stated that the Council is not for or against the action taken by about 100 musicians who have sued Carlos Sakyi, Chairman of Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO), for allegedly dissipating funds of belonging to GHAMRO collected on behalf of music right owners in Ghana.
Speaking in an interview on Hitz FM, Akosua Agyepong said, “We don’t want to condemn the actions of the musicians because they have every right to sue GHAMRO, but we would have preferred they settled the issue quietly in peace and unity.”
The Vice President of MCG also stressed that though MUSIGA told the Council that it had spoken to GHAMRO on the issue several times but to no avail hence the court action, “we plead with GHAMRO to meet with MUSIGA as soon as possible to settle the issue amicably.”
Akosua Adjepong also attributed the current impasse within the organisation to musicians who have albums to their credit but have not registered with GHAMRO, and urged all to be part of GHAMPRO.
She had also advised GHAMRO executives to prove to musicians that they have their best interest at heart and quickly come out to clear the allegations levelled against them.
