Popular Radio Presenter, Nana Romeo, has urged Chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Organization, GHAMRO, Kojo Antwi, to step down to save his image.
The Accra FM On Air Personality, OAP, said things are currently not going well with members of GHAMRO.
Recall that GHAMRO, under Chairman Kojo Antwi, had recently come under criticism after Ghanaian music legend, Randy Nunoo said his administration had failed musicians and had not been accountable.
Also, Ghanaian high life musician, Abirekyieba Kofi Sammy, had declared war on Antwi, saying ‘he is a thief and God will punish him.’
In a chat with Zionfelix, Romeo said the recent complain about GHAMRO’s mismanagement by its members does not speak well of the musician’s high-earned reputation.
He pleaded with Kojo Antwi to do the honourable thing by stepping down as chairman of the organisation to save his image.
Romeo said, “I remember very well that Kojo Antwi released his first album in the 1980s and since then, he has been respected by many people in Africa, Europe, America and other parts of the world. You will hardly hear anything bad about the musician which will give you room to insult him.
“You will only hear about Kojo Antwi when he is about to release an album or a song, so it is very difficult for people to talk to him anyhow.
“Not long ago, we heard that he has joined GHAMRO and truth be told, things were going on well when he started but things are not going on well as the members expected.
“This has given room for young guys Kojo Antwi can call his grandsons and daughters to talk to him anyhow; something I think does not augur well.
“People are just tarnishing the image Kojo Antwi has built over the years. My humble appeal to Kojo Antwi is to step down as GHAMRO chairman for someone to takeover.
“He should protect the living legend status he has gained for these past years. We can’t sit to look at some people insult him just like that because of GHAMRO affairs.
“He’s lived a better life these past years to gain many assets he wants for his life and children, so what kind of money is at GHAMRO that will make him allow some people to just insult him,” Romeo added.
