Churches to pay royalties – GHAMRO

The Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) has hinted churches in Ghana will be paying royalties for songs they sing during their services.

Speaking at a media workshop last week, the chairman of the organization, Rex Owusu Marfo known in showbiz as Rex Omar indicated that they are planning to make churches also pay royalties for the music they use.

“Yes, we are considering that. We are putting in place the necessary measures to let churches pay royalties because they also use musicians’ intellectual property,” he said.

He added that if all music users would pay for the songs they use, the Ghanaian musician will be better than before.

GHAMRO has held workshops for the police and the media to educate them on their activities and their respective roles in helping enforce copyright laws.
