Ghana’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Papa Owusu-Ankomah was in shock after Stonebwoy revealed he has received only GHC 2,000 as royalties from the Ghana Music Rights Organisers.
According to the award-winning Ghanaian Reggae/ Dancehall artiste, the GHC2000 royalties is all he has received despite his many years in the industry releasing popular songs.
The “Activate” hitmaker, who is currently in the United Kingdom, revealed this in a meeting with Ghana’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Papa Owusu-Ankomah.
“Me I’m telling you on camera. This is Stonebwoy. The amount I have ever gotten from making music as royalties in Ghana is GHC 2000. I’m being honest. A lot of other artists are having the same problem,” Stonebwoy said to a shocked Papa Owusu-Ankomah.
Papa Owusu-Ankomah then asked; “What about all your songs that are being played on the radio almost every day?”.
Stonebwoy replied “I’m being honest, put me to it, and let’s have this conversation. The conversation is big in Ghana. They know it”.
Stonebwoy further revealed that he’s been to the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) to demand royalties due him to no avail.“We go there every time, I went there with my lawyers, we were not fighting,” he added.
