The veteran highlife singer, Akosua Adjepong, has been cautioned by the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) to stop making false accusations against the body or face legal consequences.
This was revealed by Diana Hopeson, a board member of GHAMRO, in an interview with Rainbow Entertainment on radio.
She said that Akosua Adjepong’s false claims have contributed to the delay of GHAMRO’s licence renewal by the Attorney General’s office.
“She keeps telling businesses not to pay royalties and that we are operating illegally. She is doing this because she wants to be in charge of GHAMRO, but she never contests in elections. She also knows that our laws state that anyone who tarnishes the image of GHAMRO can be penalized, which is why she rarely files. She has refused to appear before us to answer questions. She does not care about the success of GHAMRO,” Diana Hopeson said.
She added that GHAMRO is ready to sue Akosua Adjepong for her actions that are affecting the organisation negatively.
Akosua Adjepong had earlier called on the Attorney General’s office to shut down GHAMRO, alleging that the interim management committee led by Rex Omar was working illegally without a valid licence.
However, Rex Omar confirmed at a press conference on Thursday, June 1, that the Attorney General had declined to renew their licence.
