Veteran highlife musician Rex Omar is the new Chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Owners Organization (GHAMRO).
He takes over from music great Kojo Antwi who recently completed his two-year mandate.
Rex Omar pipped Nana Tuffour by seven to six votes of the newly-elected 13-member board during the elections for the new administration of the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) on March 18.
The new 13-member GHAMRO Board includes; Rex Marfo (Rex Omar), James Kweku Tuffour (Nana Tuffour), Augustina Addison, Bice Osei Kuffour (Obour), Diana Hopeson, Oheneba Kissi, Henry Bessa Simons and Nana Kwaku Duah Okyere (Tic Tac).
The others are Benjamin Mensah, Ahmed Banda (Bandex), Kwasi Ernest Ennin, Seth Kwaku Amponsah and Francis Boahene.
Ahmed Banda, popularly known as Bandex, retained his position as 1st Vice Chairman while the former President of MUSIGA, Mrs. Diana Hopeson assumes the role of the 2nd Vice Chair.
GHAMRO has for many years been be-devilled by a series of controversies concerning their elections and delayed royalties to members.
