The chairperson the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO), Rex Omar, has added his voice to issues concerning the VGMA21 and banned artists, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.
Some people opined that as long as the scheme had banned these artists, it had no right to play their songs at the event. While others believe that it was a step in the right direction and could mean the scheme was opened to accepting these artists back into the scheme.
Speaking as an expert voice, the President of Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO), Rex Omar, educated the listeners of Zylofon FM ShowbizAgenda that, these two artists can not hold the scheme liable for the kind of songs the Dj they’ve paid to play on the night decided to play. Adding that as long as they DJ cleared the songs or had done the needful with GHAMRO, they were at liberty t play the song.
Also, the scheme can not be held accountable for DJ’s to individual artists of the night who played those songs for their performance.
However, he admitted that if these two artists had sent an official letter prior to the event warning them from playing their songs and they did otherwise, then they could have dragged them to court.
Since that wasn’t the case, VGMA21 can get away with playing the songs of artists they have banned from the scheme.
