The Ghana Music Rights Organisation, (GHAMRO), has begun December 2016 distribution of outstanding royalties to it members.

A press statement signed by Prince Tsegah, Public Relations Officer for GHAMRO, indicated that the receipt of the statutory blank levy of two million two hundred and twenty four thousand Ghana Cedis (2,224,000.00) was made possible from the Bank of Ghana through the Registrar Generals Department.

According to him, the Board in line with its mandate has approved the disbursement of funds as indicated to settle the outstanding royalty payment due to members for December 2016 via mobile money, bank transfers and over the counter payments for the old, disabled and infirm members.

Tsegah noted that the amount being distributed is almost 20% more than what is statutorily required by the Regulations, adding that to enable the Society improve on its collections and distribute higher royalties to members, the Board and Management of GHAMRO urge all music users such as Broadcasting Stations (Radio & TV), Telecommunication Operators, Banking & Other Financial Institutions, Hotels, Shopping Malls, Restaurants, Spinning Groups, Event Organisers, Offices, Hairdressing Salons, Barbering Shops and all other public places, to apply to GHAMRO for a licence to regularise their usage of musical works by calling the hotlines (054 0122357 and 054 0122359).
For sometime now members of GHAMRO have questioned Board members of the organisation on reasons why royalties were not paid in December 2016.
