Guinness World Record: Rex Omar Clarifies His Statement Of Canceling Afua Asantewaa’s Singathon

Rex Omar received backlash for indicating that he and his organization might halt Afua Asantewaa Aduonum’s Sing-A-Thon event. The Chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) faced criticism following his remarks on GTV’s morning show, with many accusing him of obstructing Asantewaa’s success.

He has since underscored the significance of artists taking proactive steps to safeguard their work and has highlighted GHAMRO’s role in ensuring equitable compensation for artists. In a recent interview with Kafui Dey on Ghana Television, Rex Omar asserted the potential cancellation of Afua Asantewaa Aduonum’s Guinness World Record Sing-A-Thon. He emphasized the need for Asantewaa to comply with copyright laws and secure the necessary permissions for the songs she plans to perform.

GHAMRO, established under Section 49 of the Copyright Law (Act 690 of 2005), is tasked with collecting and distributing royalties for music copyright holders in Ghana. Operating as a non-profit entity, GHAMRO ensures fair distribution of fees among composers, authors, producers, and publishers based on the usage of their works, as governed by L.I. 1962 of 2010.
