You’re always quick to condemn Akufo-Addo but what've you done for musicians – Akosua Agyapong jabs Rex Omar

Akosua Agypaong and Rex Omar

Rex Omar is always trying to discredit President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo but what has he (Rex Omar) done for musicians as the chairman of Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO), veteran highlife musician Akosua Agyapong has quizzed.

According to Akosua Agyapong, Rex Omar, who she described as the “worst GHAMRO chairman ever”, is rather quick to criticise the President of the land despite the fact that Mr Akufo-Addo has used his office to helped musicians.

The “Frema” hitmaker wants Rex Omar, who is also a highlife veteran, to tell musicians what he has done for them.

In expressing her disappointment with the current administration of GHAMBRO, she said that contrary to the high expectations that musicians had of the ‘Abiba’ hitmaker, he has been a huge disappointment.

Speaking to Docta Kay on Accra100.5FM’s drive time show, Nkran Kwanso on Thursday, 1 October 2020, Akosua Agyapong said: “When Carlos was in charge, you [Rex Omar] were on several media platforms criticising, so, we thought that given the chance, you will do better. Rather, the situation is gone from bad to worse.

“As for Rex, I will say it again and again that among all of them, Rex is the worst GHAMRO chairman ever.”

“I don't do politics but I know who to vote for. I don't do politics because I have fans from various political parties but someone like Rex Omar goes on air to question what President Akufo-Addo has done for musicians but what has he [Rex Omar] done for musicians?” the ‘Eka bi nie’ singer noted.

She also disclosed that she wants an opportunity to run GHAMRO, indicating that “something is amiss somewhere.”

Akosua Agyapong, who has constantly trumpeted the rot at the royalty collection and distribution company, also expressed disappointment in Diana Hopeson, the second Vice-Chairperson at GHAMRO.

She told Docta Kay: “Also, there is a woman there who has disappointed me, Diana Hopeson. Diana has really disappointed me because she is a woman. And to start with, she went to run the Musicians' Union as president and we didn't see what you did. We didn't see what Diana did for musicians.”
