The rapper who just returned from the States on music business told the host he expected more than the VGMA award. When pushed for explanation, the record of the year award winner said “this song is for the whole of the industry and as such expected the industry to address the problems outlined in the project. SoA is not just a song but a message to the industry. Boss see we have copy right issues, no royalties paid nothing. All we have to do is look for events to perform or brand endorsements else we go hungry”.
The next big thing in gh hiphop finalist, mentioned he’s never received a penny from Ghamro or any one in respect of royalty. This he feels is a big problem the industry must be concerned of. He admonished those who are aspiring to lead the industry must be prepared to address these structural challenges of the industry.
