In a Facebook post on Wednesday, May 3, the ‘chop kiss’ hit singer threatened to go out of control if GHAMRO royalties due him are not paid.
He wrote: “GHAMRO are you ready to pay my royalties or you want me to go haywire!!”
Shatta Wale took to micro blogging site Twitter last year to unleash his dissatisfaction and what’s possibly hindering progress of the Ghanaian entertainment industry, especially the music industry. He questioned whether there are copyright laws here in Ghana and the fact that he’s not receiving royalties for his works.
