I Do Not Support GHAMRO’S Decision To Collect Royalties From Churches—Gospel Musician

Ghanaian Gospel Artist, Bernard Amankwah has said he is not happy about the decision of Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) to collect royalties from churches in the country.


The ‘Come to Jesus’ singer says Gospel Musicians receive a lot of benefits from the churches, hence, he is not in support of such move.

“I am a believer and it is God who gives us the strength and words to do music. He called us to help plant the church and also propagate his word through singing.

“We benefit from the churches that we minister…and I am not in support of GHAMRO’s decision,” he told Abeiku Turkson on TV Africa’s Showbiz And More program which was monitored by the News Hunter Magazine.

Chairman of GHAMRO, Rex Owusu Marfo popularly known as Rex Omar disclosed at a workshop organized by his outfit last week on their plans to collect royalties from churches on the music they use.


“Yes, we are considering that. We are putting in place the necessary measures to let churches pay royalties because they also use musicians’ intellectual property,” Rex Omar stated.
