¢30k in royalties is an insult to my music career – Shatta Wale

Although he earned the biggest amount of royalties in 2021, Shatta Wale says GHS30,000 is an insult to his music career.

According to him, there isn’t enough money in the music industry and the little musicians receive are used to settle things like taxes.

In a post on Twitter, Shatta Wale said that many Ghanaian artistes would not voice out and complain about the system or the small monies they receive.

“30k is an insult to my entire music career!!! But this one as usual Ghana artiste will sit down and won’t voice out!!  Ego reach your turn !!! I came out before most of your so-called artiste, so start crying for them cuz truth be told we are all not making any money here🥂👑(sic),” he wrote.

This comes after the former Chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) revealed on Tuesday that Shatta Wale received immense royalties in 2021.

According to him, the ‘Melissa’ hitmaker had over ¢30,000 in royalties. That, he said, is the highest amount of money GHAMRO has given out in its history.

Speaking on GTV on Tuesday morning, Rex Omar said Shatta Wale has not received his money because his team has failed to provide the needed account details.

“We did a distribution in December, and Shatta Wale was the highest earner. We spoke to his management to come and give us his account details so that we can send the money to him. We don’t know who to pay it to because we don’t have his details.”

Reacting to the statement, Shatta Wale said that he was grateful to GHAMRO for their transparency

However, he would use all that money to pay his taxes, the Freedom hitmaker stated.

“I am using all this money to file my tax because I can’t bear the pressure anymore from GRA.”

He reiterated to some of the commenters underneath his post that many artistes still survive on endorsements and concerts.
