Ghanaian highlife artiste, K.K. Fosu has hinted at his intention to become the next chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO).

He told Nana Kwesi Asare on ‘The Big Show’ on Class91.3FM on Saturday, 9 March 2019 that he wants to be the chairman of GHAMRO in order to control the royalties of the organisation to enable the members to get well-paid.

“Ghana Music Rights Organisation [GHAMRO] is where I want to be because I really want to take control of the royalties, we [musicians] deserve to be paid, we are not being paid to our expectation because we have poor management at [GHAMRO].

According to the highlife artiste, GHAMRO must allow artistes to be involved in their decision-making.

“We've been complaining on radio on the same issue for years now, they should know that we’re in a new generation, so, they should allow the young ones to take over [the management of GHAMBRO]...

“It’s our [musicians] money, not theirs but they are paid more than the artistes. The last time I received money from GHAMRO was last year and it was just GHS800 for the whole year. We need to get more because our songs are everywhere but the few places that they’re monitoring is the only place they’re getting the money from, if we have this structure that we can monitor our music videos, our music being played on air, the artiste will be paid more. So, we need to know all those things,” he stated.
