I haven’t received royalties from GHAMRO since I registered – Big Joe Frazier

Even though he has been in the industry for 20 years, Ghanaian celebrated rapper Big Joe Frazier is yet to receive any royalties from the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO).

In an interview on HitzFM, he expressed his frustration, mentioning that he registered with GHAMRO years ago but has seen no financial return.

“They issued me an ID card and collected all my songs five months ago,” he shared.

Joe Frazier, who has been active in the music scene for over two decades, voiced his disappointment over the absence of royalties from GHAMRO. He highlighted that despite his registration, his name no longer appears in their system.

The rapper revealed that his main source of income has been performances, attributing his hit song “Yaa Maame” for opening international opportunities and helping him establish his record label, JF Project (Joe Frazier Project).

Big Joe Frazier’s experience raises concerns about GHAMRO’s efficiency in royalty collection and distribution for artists.

GHAMRO, established under section 49 of the Copyright Law, Act 690 of 2005, and regulated under L.I 1962 of 2010, is responsible for collecting and distributing royalties for authors, composers, and other rights holders.
