Obour Alleges Gov't Stopped Him From Creating Royalties For Artists, Says D-Black



The Ghana music industry has been faced with issues of royalties for a very long time.

Many popular artists have claimed over the years not to have received a single dime from the authorities involved thus Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) and Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO).

Among those artists includes D-Black who made some shocking revelations to TV3's Mz Gee on Monday 20th April while being interviewed on his new single "Take Your Stone".

The businessman and rapper who is currently away in New Jersey talked about his relationship with the immediate past MUSIGA President Obour Bice.

According to his statement, Obour convinced him in 2012 to solicit funding from Ghana's government to enable the creation of a proper royalties system in the country. However after MUSIGA successfully received 2 million dollars from government, Obour the then President did absolutely nothing to make royalties possible for musicians.

D-Black alleged that Obour recently apologized for liying to him and wished he had another chance to do things differently explaining that it was the government who advised him not to invest into the royalties system.

This comes only a few weeks after D-Black accused Obour of corruption on Twitter. A lot of musicians are struggling to make ends meet and it's just unfortunate that people in power would take actions to make this situation worse. Whatever the case it, Ghanaian musicians deserve better and deserve proper accountability from the authorities involved.
