There is confusion among former and incumbent executives of the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) over GHc2.3million which has allegedly not been accounted for.

The Auditor General’s special audit of the accounts of GHAMRO) revealed that ¢2,339,272.79 has not been fully accounted for.

A forensic audit conducted on the organisation’s accounts from 2012 to 2016 under the Carlos Sakyi administration revealed there were no documentations or payment vouchers to prove disbursed funds including various transfers and withdrawals.

Speaking on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem’s Anti-Corruption segment, Fabewoso, Abraham Adjetey, a member of the current Board of GHAMRO said the findings were the true reflection of the organisation’s financial status.


According to Agya Abraham as he is popularly known, the current administration has worked tirelessly to get GHAMRO back on its feet to be able to pay royalties to musicians.

However, John Mensah Sarpong, a member of Mr Sakyi’s administration said they were working smoothly with all documentations available till unknown people raided their offices.

“I can attest this is not the final report and you can verify from one Mr Akuamoah Boateng at the Auditor General’s office because there is no way such a mess will happen looking at the calibre of people who were on the Board,” he said.

To Mr Sarpong, the report does not reflect the reality of the former administration because they left behind GHc5.4million in the account of GHAMRO before leaving office.
