Stonebwoy
has revealed he has not made a dime from royalties since he started his career
in 2009.The
BET Award winning Dancehall act says he is yet to receive some funds from
GHAMRO.

“I’m
a member of MUSIGHA but I haven’t received royalties before.” Stonebwoy told
JOY FM. “It’s rather unfortunate but who do I talk to. I haven’t bothered to go
check with anybody about it yet. I still remember for the seven years I have
been here since Obrafour featured me on his ‘Ghetto Love’, from 2009 to now.
Not even a cedi, I can’t remember receiving anything.”
“I’m
not the type of artist that pushes blames on people. I always seek to assist
myself then I can help others. I’m a registered member of MUSIGHA but I haven’t
yet.
He
indicated that the structures in Ghana music industry do not work and should be
looked at by the government to ensure that musicians also enjoy from their
labour.

“There
is a problem with the structure of the music industry and the government needs
to involve itself so we can fix that.”
