The Ghana Music Rights Organisation has disclosed that it is set to distribute one million Ghana cedis to musicians this month.
A statement from the organisation said “It’s instructive to note that the amount earmarked to be distributed this August is solely from collections and investments made by the Board and Management on behalf of members”.
It further said “It has not yet received the mandatory payment from government, popularly known as “Blank Levy” and that as soon as GHAMRO receives the Blank levy, members will be duly informed and money will be subsequently added to the royalties in the next distribution”.
“Music users, namely, Radio and TV stations, Nightclubs, Pubs, Restaurants, Shopping Malls, Hotels and Banks amongst others are hereby reminded to pay their various licenses to GHAMRO with immediate effect to avoid any embarrassment or possible law suit for failing to comply with the provisions of the Copyright Law of Ghana,” the statement concluded.
The distribution will be done from August 15.
