Radio Stations Should Start Charging Musicians Before Playing Their Songs – Pastor

Pastor Eric Adu Gyamfi of Christian Fidelity Chapel in Sunyani has called on radio stations in Ghana to start charging musicians before they play their songs.


The Vociferous Pastor who was commenting on the decision of Ghana Music Rights Organization’s (GHAMRO) to collect royalties from churches on J. Life FM’s Entertainment Chart Show said:

“GHAMRO should be careful with their decision to collect royalties from the churches in Ghana. If they do not take care they will be met with a lot of legal tussles.

“I urge all the radio stations in Ghana to also collect not less than GH 10,000 from musicians before they play their songs on the medium,” he told host of the show, Felix Agyei (Mr. Lattus).

Pastor Eric Adu Gyamfi added: “It is like robbing Peter to pay Paul. They are collecting royalties from radio stations meanwhile the various radio stations are helping these musicians to reach wider audience. If all the radio stations in Ghana have an association then they should think about what I am saying.


“Radio stations buy electricity power and at the end of the month, they have to pay their workers too. If musicians pay television stations before their videos are shown…why are they not doing same to the radio stations in the country. Radio owners should fight for it to become a law.”
