Ghanaian musician, Peter Fameye Bozah known simply as Fameye in showbiz has revealed how his contract with former record label OGB Music ended without him getting a dime from thier stay together.
Fameye was allegedly signed under contract with a GHC 2.5 million sign-on money to help promote his music and brand.
According to him, he never got any physical cash from his contract but rather all the money was channelled into shooting videos and recording of his music.
In an interview on TV3’s New Day show, Fameye further added that all the money he made from the sales of his songs whiles under OGB Music was kept by the label and not given to him.
“I’m just glad I was able to pay. He still has all of my songs. He is profiting from the streams of my songs.” he said.
The “Mati” composer wondered why musicians are seen as the last link on the chain when they are the main engine running the smooth operation of the record labels.
“Talent is money, and the record label is bringing physical money as well. So we’re both supposed to do business… However, we make it appear as if record labels or managers are assisting artists while the artists have nothing to offer. While they are bringing in talent and a lot of energy”, Fameye said.
Fameye also revealed that he will never stop doing music even if no one listens to his songs because he believes he was born to do music and nothing can stop that.
“Aside from music, there is nothing else I can do. Even if no one ever listens to my music, I will never stop making it.”
“Those who appreciate the artistic value of my videos are those who live outside of Ghana and beyond.”
