GHAMRO election is riddled with ‘Mafia’ techniques— Gyedu Blay Ambolley alleges 

Legendary highlife musician, Gyedu Blay Ambolley, says the recent elections conducted by the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) is allegedly riddled with “Mafia” tactics.

He also described the newly-elected board members of GHAMRO as “jokers” since the elections to him were not genuinely conducted.

According to him, decision that went into the election was not thought through with the stakeholders who were mainly composers and musicians making up the organisation.

Speaking in an interview on Happy FM Gyedu Blay Ambolley said the move was a wrong one as composers and musicians, were not contacted.

“Whatever is going on is innate you can’t just go and sit in a corner and connive. What I’m trying to say is GHAMRO belongs to stakeholders which include the composers, musicians, and all. Whatever happens, the composers have to be in knowledge so you can’t do something without their knowledge,” he stated.

He went on to say that the electoral process was riddled with “Mafia” techniques, adding that several candidates bribed the electoral commission to interfere with the election results.

Gyedu Blay Ambolley indicated that he withdrew from the process as he suspected some foul play and wrongdoings among the executives.
