Shatta Wale – Ghamro (Prod. by Shawers Ebiem)


When I saw the title I knew what Shatta Wale was about. Shatta, always known to be outspoken releases a new song titled “GHAMRO” publicly telling them to pay him his royalties. Shatta doesn’t play with his money, and I’m sure that was his motivation for this piece. GHAMRO means Ghana Music Rights Organization. It is a Collective Management organization approved under Copyright Act 690 and LI 1962. It is the sole Ghanaian copyright entity licenced by law to undertake collective rights management for musical works, sound recordings and performances. They’re supposed to pay artistes their royalties per how their songs are played on air and outdoor commercial events. Apparently, Shatta claims they haven’t done what they’re due. This song serves as a wake-up call.
