Ghanaian musicians have often cried for the payment of royalties for their own hard works. Many, have on several occasions leveled complaints about how they are denied these monies even after going passing through all the necessary avenues. The latest to join the cry is the celebrated rapper, Okyeame Kwame.
The rap doctor has alleged that he has never received any payment as royalties for any of his songs.In a tweet, the ‘Small Small’ crooner expressed his anger at the provoking attitudes of radio presenters questioning him on whether he gets his royalties or not.
Meanwhile, according to him, these presenters are much aware that their radio stations are not willing to log on or pay the musicians royalties for even a day. “There is nothing more annoying than going to a radio station for an interview and you are asked do you get your royalties ?? When he knows his station will not log on or pay per play. My royalties are with the radio stations” he tweeted.
