Dancehall artiste Charles Nii Armah, aka Shatta Wale, has responded to the chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Organisation(GHAMRO), Rex Omar, over a comment about his royalties.

Rex Omar had urged Shatta Wale to redeem some monies due him as royalties.

Speaking on the GTV Breakfast show, Rex Omar disclosed that Shatta had a total of GH¢30,000 in royalties.

However, the management of the artiste is required to provide some information before it can be released to him.

"Shatta Wale's money with GHAMRO is over GHC30, 000, we're only waiting for his management to bring us his account details so that the money will be paid into his account," Rex said.

In response, Shatta Wale in a Twitter post on Wednesday, February 23, 2022, said he was grateful for the recognition given to him by GHAMRO.

Shatta Wale mentioned that he’s been pressured by the Ghana Revenue Authority to pay his tax.

He went on to say that even though things are currently hard in the country, he’s willing to use his royalties due him to pay the tax. 

He also lamented that the money was not much and that he believes he deserved more than he was given.

“I am using all this money to file my tax cuz I can’t bear the pressure anymore from GRA.. No money in our industry and the little we make too the system takes it .. Thank you GHAMRO for this transparency!!,” Shatta wrote.
