Shatta Wale Earned Over GH¢30k In Royalties In 2021, The Highest In GHAMRO History – Rex Omar

Former Chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) has revealed that Shatta Wale received immense royalties in 2021.

According to him, the ‘Melissa’ hitmaker had over ¢30,000 in royalties. That, he said, is the highest amount of money GHAMRO has given out in its history.

Speaking on national broadcaster GTV’s Tuesday morning, Rex Omar said Shatta Wale has not received his money because his team has failed to provide the needed account details.

“We did a distribution in December, and Shatta Wale was the highest earner. We spoke to his management to come and give us his account details so that we can send the money to him. We don’t know who to pay it to because we don’t have his details.

“The checks are signed prepared, either his management or he, himself, come for the check or give us account details so that we can transfer the money into his count, and he hasn’t done that,” he told Kafui Dey, host of the show.

Rex Omar’s comment comes days after Shatta Wale lamented about the failure of the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) to pay him his royalties.

According to him, the money he has made from music comes from streaming platforms, concerts, and foreign royalty collection bodies he is signed to.

Taking to Twitter on Thursday, Shatta Wale wrote, “our work as musicians or let’s say the creatives is sad in Ghana, but the players of the game will tell you they can’t speak (because) they don’t want people to insult them. Me, I’m hungry; I want everyone to insult me… I am hungry; where is my royalties? GHANA!!!(sic).”

However, Rex Omar says GHAMRO has contacted Shatta Wale’s team on numerous occasions to ensure he gets his royalties, but their efforts have not yielded any result.

He noted that as long as the money belongs to Shatta Wale, it would remain there for him.

“GHAMRO has not been operating up to, let’s say, 100% as the way it is supposed to, but it is a work in progress. So, Shatta, your money is still at GHAMRO; bring your details so that they can pay your money to you, then start to hype GHAMRO so that it can do a lot for you,” Rex Omar said.

Black Sherif Is A One-way Artiste - Blakk Rasta

One of Ghana’s highly opinionated radio presenters, Blakk Rasta has given his verdict on fast-rising rapper Black Sherif.

Black Sherif broke into the limelight with his Second Sermon song which got a lot of recognition from all over the world.

The song earned him a collaboration with Grammy Award winner Burna Boy to record the remix.

He went to carry the Ghanaian fast-rising rapper along with him during his music tour last year.

Currently, his Kwaku The Traveller has garnered a lot of attention topping most music charts around the world.

Speaking to Nana Tuffour and Frema Adunyame on Citi TV show “Upside Down, the highly opinionated broadcaster without mincing words posited that the Kwaku The Traveller is a lucky musician who has a certain grace in his life.

According to him, a lot of people have made songs which are more popular than Kwaku The Traveller but Black Sherif is a lucky guy.

He further advised the young rapper to learn from the mistakes of other musicians in the industry and move on.

Blakk Rasta added that the Second Sermon hitmaker’s two songs he has listened to are so similar.

” I have listened to two of his songs and I think that they are so similar.  Similarity is not one way but if he is not careful he will be a one-way artiste,” the former Zylofon presenter remarked.
