GHAMRO to sue Akosua Agyapong for spreading ‘rumours’

Akosua Agyapong - Rapid News GH

Akosua Agyapong , a veteran highlife musician, has been served with a legal notice by the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) because he allegedly made misleading remarks about the organization.

Diana Hopeson, a member of the GHAMRO board, revealed this.

She was talking to Rainbow Entertainment during a radio interview.

She claims that the complaints made by a few GHAMRO members, in particular Akosua Agyapong , are to blame for the organization’s current problems with the delay in receiving a license to operate.

“Aside from that, some members who continue to fabricate information about the organization will do so. Some of them, most notably Akosua Agyapong, suggest that companies avoid paying royalties.

It illustrates her dislike of GHAMRO. She is the best person to give you an explanation of what she is doing and why. This time, GHAMRO is prepared to appear in court because anything she does affects GHAMRO.

“Since she keeps circulating untrue rumors that we are doing business unlawfully, we are ready to confront her in court. She is out to destroy us because she wants to be in charge, but she doesn’t run for office when elections are held.

She is also aware that her actions disqualify her because, according to our regulations, smearing the reputation of an organization could result in a fine. For this reason, she rarely files. She has ignored our numerous requests for her to appear before us and respond to issues. She said, “Unfortunately, she has little interest in the organization’s success.

Akosua Agyapong encouraged the Attorney General’s office to shut down GHAMRO in a May 2023 interview with Graphic Showbiz because the functions of the interim management committee were unlawful.

She claimed that the chairman of the temporary management committee, Rex Omar, was acting unlawfully because there was no legal basis for their authority.

The Kokooko hitmaker noted that since GHAMRO’s license had not been renewed by the Attorney General’s office, those in charge had no business managing the organization.

When Rex Omar, Executive Director of the Interim Board, revealed at a press conference on Thursday, June 1, that the Attorney General had declined to renew GHAMRO’s license, matters for the organization appeared to have taken a turn for the worse.

Even though their license had been canceled was widely reported in the media, Rex Omar dispelled the rumor in an interview with Kwame Dadzie on Rhytmz A-Z yesterday, June 3.

The misinformation being spread about GHAMRO by some of its members, led by Akosua Agyapong, has prevented them from being able to renew their license, he noted.
