You can form your own collecting society – Rex Omar

Rex Owusu Marfo, popularly known as Rex Omar has told music Rights Owners in Ghana that they can withdraw their membership from the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) if they feel GHAMRO is not being transparent to them.

He said this during a meeting with leaders of the Music Council of Ghana and the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) yesterday December 22, 2015, at the Registrar General’s Conference room.

Rex Omar made this statement when John Mensah Sarpong who served on the former board with him (Rex Omar) wanted the know the criteria the new board uses to distribute royalties to members and whether it was appropriate for them to disseminate information through text messages to members.

Rex Omar responded by saying that GHAMRO is the only collecting society we have in Ghana so if you don’t understand the way GHAMRO operates you can form your own society.
