Management of Ghanaian Gospel artiste, Gifty ‘Empress’ Osei has apologized to the Ghana Music Rights Organisation ( GHAMRO), for the musician’s claim of not been paid any royalties by the organisation.
Earlier this week, the artiste, Gifty Empress osei disclosed in an interview with Kojo Preko Dankwa, host of K-Entertainment that she had never received any royalties from GHAMRO.
“I have never received royalties from GHAMRO but I am a member of the organization. I’ve registered all my songs.” She said.
However, Rex Owusu Marfo, the Chairperson of GHAMRO also known as Rex Omar told prepsspeep.com in an interview that claims made by Gifty Osei were totally false.
“Gifty Osei is a liar and I’ve asked her manager to let her come publicly to apologize to GHAMRO else we’ll publish all the monies they’ve received from Ghamro since 2015 till date including even the very last distribution we did,” he said.
The online portal’s update indicates that head of Gifty Osei’s management team, Mr. Stephen Kenneth Nakujah has apologized for the false claim by his artiste.
According to him, royalties of Gifty Osei comes directly into the coffers of the management and that Gifty Osei was once told in a meeting but it escaped the Gospel diva when she was asked that question.
He also confirmed that after Gifty Osei’s interview, they (GHAMRO) called her to come public and correct the false impression. Mr. Stephen Kenneth Nakujah used the opportunity to render an unqualified apology to GHAMRO and the entire public for the misinformation.
