The Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) has announced that it will be distributing royalties to members effective Wednesday, December 23, 2021, to the end of January 2022.
In a statement sighted by JoyNews, the Director of Communications, Prince Tsegah, said this year’s distribution will be in two folds; the General and the Title Specific which also includes monies received from CAPASSO of South Africa for works used on the online digital platforms.
“Whilst the general distribution will ensure that Right Owners receive royalty payments across the board, the title specific will cater for monitored logs from local networks and the online streaming distribution,” the statement further said.
In order to provide access for the benefit of Right Owners, GHAMRO shall soon publish the names of Artiste/Right Owners whose works have accrued royalties to enable them to update and regularize the documentation needed.
“GHAMRO reminds all commercial music users of their copyright obligations for 2022 and wishes all right owners, business affiliates, and music users a merry Christmas and a prosperous new year,” the organisation said.
