Gospel Musician Nobel Nketia has revealed he has not received any royalties from the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) in the 21 years he has been in the industry.
According to him, he signed with the revenue collection body early in his career; however, after they failed to give him any royalties, he did not check in with them again.
Noble Nketsiah said in an interview with foxx on top pawa drive, the time, there were not many systems in place to ensure musicians, songwriters and other right owners are duly paid for their craft.
He explained that many artistes had to focus on other avenues to make money with their music.
Noble Nketsiah noted that he has plans to check in with GHAMRO, especially since they have revamped their revenue collections system.
This comes after the former Chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) revealed on Tuesday that Shatta Wale received immense royalties in 2021.
According to him, the ‘Melissa’ hitmaker had over ¢30,000 in royalties. That, he said, is the highest amount of money GHAMRO has given out in its history.
