Highlife musician, KK Fosu has urged the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) to fix the royalties collection system.
He was afraid most musicians in the country will die poor if things do not change.
KK Fosu lamented over how much old musicians receive as royalties in an interview with Doctar Cann on Happy FM.
“Musicians are suffering especially the oldies. Most of the oldies don’t know about this digital stuff. All they know is going to register at wherever they have been asked to go and waiting to receive their money so we need to help them. I for instance, I am still young and energetic so if I decide to quit music now, I can still do other jobs but the oldies can’t,” he stated.
“I received about a 1000cedis recently and that money is royalties for over a year, not six months like they are saying because it’s been way over six months since I last received it,” KK Fosu revealed.
