Ace musician Gyedu-Blay Ambolley and over 900 other music right owners and members of Ghana Music Right Owners (GHAMRO) have formed a new collecting society, Music Rights Society of Ghana (MURSOG), following the recent legal tussle and wrangling in the activities of the GHAMRO.

The new society which is formed with members from eight music associations and unions whose membership were part of GHAMRO aims at collecting and distributing royalties to its members who are owners of music sound recordings in Ghana.

Speaking on Hitz FM, the highlife artistes indicted that in other jurisdictions, there are more than one collecting society and whoever is able to fight for the interest of its members get the followership.

It is freedom of association. Other countries have even more than two collecting societies. It’s just lie a political party. Once you are able to serve the interest of the people and they have that confidence in you, they give you the mandate. MURSOG is there for intellectual owners who think they deserve better”, he said.

He added that the Registrar General’s office has released the certificate for the new society to commence business as a company limited by guarantee.

Reports are that Akosua Agyapong, Pozo Hayes, King David, Ekow Micah, Naa Amanua Doodo, Nana Taby, Collins Marfo, Kyei Baffour, Obuoba J. A. Adofo, Sloopy Mike Gyamfi, George William Dickson, Frank Mensah Pozo, Akatakyie and many popular musicians in the music industry are members of the new collective society.
