Court dissolves GHAMRO board, five-member temporary board formed to lead the organization

A team of five members has been formed to lead the Ghana Music Rights Organization, GHAMRO on a temporary basis following a court decision that resolved the precious leadership which was elected in March 2022.

The action follows a court injunction dissolving its existing board of directors. The High court in a ruling on Tuesday, July 19 2022, declared that GHAMRO’s leadership did not comply with an intermediary injunction on the election which occurred on March 15, 2022.

At a press conference, management informed the general public of the decision to have a temporary board which will oversee the activities of the organization till after all issues have been resolved in court. According to the leadership of GHAMRO, some aggrieved members took the organization to court questioning the mandate of the board and the processes leading to the last election.

Meanwhile, veteran musician Akosua Agyapong in an interview on the Active Morning Show with Maame Abena Fabia fiercely opposed Rex Omar’s leadership and accused him of misappropriation of funds. She questioned the Rex Omar-led team’s capacity to carry out the mandate GHAMRO.

“Ask GHAMRO of their license if they come asking for money from TV stations, restaurants, banks, spinners etc,” Akosua Agyapong advised.

After the dissolution of the board by the court, the Chief Executive Officer of GHAMRO, Abraham Adjatey announced the setting up of a team that will steer the affairs of GHAMRO until they return to court on August 11, 2022.

Rex Omar at the press conference asserted that GHAMRO is actively pursuing its mandate to license, collect and distribute music users.

The five member team includes Abraham Kofi Boakye, Rex Omar, Augustina Addison, Diana Hopeson and Ahmed Banda
