Sensational Ghanaian gospel musician, Hannah Marfo, has charged the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) and Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) to instruct musicians who duplicate the work of their colleagues without duly acknowledging them to desist engaging in such practices.

The ‘Yen Nsom Obiara’ singer cited, Kumasi-based Gospel artiste, Bro Sammy as a classic example, noting that he recently replicated one of her songs on her blind side but after threatening to sue him, he (Bro Sammy) “compensated” her with a sum of hundred Ghana cedis (100.00) and also sort the help of someone she respected very well to plead on his behalf.

According to Hannah Marfo, GHAMRO must intervene to stop such practices to prevent the situation where monies spent in production and promotion processes are wasted.

“The stress I went through just to promote the song on TV/ Radio station, the “Payola” I paid to DJs then after a year you see someone copy your lyrics I mean I call that wickedness, you see I’m growing old, 47 now and seeing my only source of income being snatched away from me is very disheartening,” She said.

Hannah Marfo advised the young artistes aspiring to be great in the music industry to quit plagiarising others’ work and rather seek the favour of God to excel in the industry.

Hannah Marfo was criticised last year November 2017 for stating it is wrong for a gospel musician to collaborate with a secular musician.

she told ‘Entertainment Today’ in an exclusive interview that one needs to assess his/her spiritual capabilities before making such a decision because secular artistes are not righteous.
