Akosua Agyapong readies to face GHAMRO in court

Renowned Ghanaian music legend, Akosua Agyapong has expressed her readiness to face the Ghana Music Rights Organization, GHAMRO, in court regarding royalties.

According to the legendary singer and dancer, her claims that the activities of the organization were unlawful were not baseless but backed by facts, emphasizing that she was prepared to present them whenever she was called upon to do so.

This comes after the ‘Kokooko’ hitmaker accused the Interim Management Commitee, with Rex Omar as Chairman, of operating illegally and demanded the Attorney General’s office to shut it down. Her claims however sparked outrage from some executive members of GHAMRO, who eventually threatened to sue her if she continued to spread false information.

Mrs Diana Hopeson, a Board Member of GHAMRO in an interview on Rainbow Radio, made known that the organisation was making plans to take legal action against Akosua Agyapong for making what they regarded as false claims.

Akosua Agyapong in an interview with Graphic Showbiz on Monday, June 12, 2023, noted that she was unfazed by their ‘threats’ of a lawsuit, and she was prepared to face them off squarely. ”I am waiting for them, I don’t care at all if they want to sue me, I am very ready for them. If they think what I have been saying are lies, and they have their own truth somewhere, I am ever ready to face and confront them in court with facts,” she said.

Akosua divulged that she was convinced that GHAMRO’s threats of legal action were unfounded and were only intended to silence her, and it was something she was not ready to do. She explained by saying, “I’m not sure what I did wrong. What I do know is that people despise the truth, and if you tell the truth, you make enemies for yourself. They’re simply threatening to sue me to get me to stop talking, and I’m not ready to comply because I want what’s right to be done.”
