Legendary Ghanaian guitarist Ebo Taylor has stated he receives more royalties from the diaspora than in Ghana.
In an interview with Agyemang Prempeh on Legends on TV XYZ, the composer revealed he receives 3 million from Ghamro as royalties.
Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) is a royalties collection agency within Ghana, that represents the rights of music copyright holders.
It was created under section 49 of the Copyright Law, Act 690 of 2005. The agency collects royalties for all rights owners in Ghana.
But Taylor, 85, is not enthused with the work of GHAMRO.
“No no it is not enough it is not any good money to rely on,” Taylor said. “I get 20 million from the diaspora, 20million dollars or 50 million pounds”
“I don’t get much from Ghana because it’s just one country but abroad there’s Italy, Spain Norway, Sweden, Denmark,“ he narrated.
A lot of Ghanaian musicians have complained about the failure of the Ghana Music Rights Organization (Ghamro) to pay them the royalties owed them.
