Veteran highlife musician Gyedu Blay-Ambolley has threatened to put a block on the February 11 elections being organised by the interim board of the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO), should the board decide to go ahead with it.
Ambolley who has consistently contested the locus of the board, has told Starr Entertainment the “corrupt bunch” board members are not fit to oversee their elections.
Having led about 20 musicians to lock up the head office of GHAMRO in Accra on Friday January 2015, the popular highlife legend said: “People can’t use Mafia ways to hijack the place.”
“Irrespective of where you come from…the closing date [for submitting nominations] is today, when many of the association members don’t even know. It needs to be opened otherwise this election is not going to come on.”
The members of the current board include MUSIGA President Obour, Kojo Antwi, Bandex, Marry Ghansah, Okyeame Kwame, K K Kabobo, Nat Brew and a few others.
Gyedu Blay-Ambolley stressed that the leadership crisis in the music industry for the past years had fuelled incompetence, intransigence and unaccountable stewardship.
Meanwhile, embattled hiplife artiste Kwaw Kese has asked for the organisation to be dissolved.
