It was a revelation that got Ghana’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Paapa Owusu Ankomah screaming.

Reggae Dancehall Musician, Stonebwoy had visited him ahead of his performance at the Yam Carnival, a brand new Afrobeat music festival from the creators of Afro Nation.

At that meeting, he said, “the amount I have ever gotten as music royalties in Ghana is ¢2,000. I am being honest, and I swear on the grave of my mother. They do not pay us, and I am stating this on camera. The conversation is big in Ghana, and everybody knows”.

He further stated, “the cheque I have ever received from GHAMRO is ¢2,000. It is not by force to go on a tour and perform that is not obligatory. But as musicians, we do not make money from our intellectual property.”

But CEO of Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO), Abraham Adjetey reacting to Stonebwoys comment on the payment, said the Putuu hitmaker has not updated his records at the royalties collection agency.
