For a month now, the chairman of Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO), Rex Omar announced plans to start taking royalties from the churches across the country. To him, the church must pay royalties as radio and television stations do because they also use musicians intellectual property.
This initiative by GHAMRO didn’t go down well with the founder and leader of Heaven’s Gate Ministries International, Rev. Nicholas known in the public domain as Prophet Kumchaacha. The self-styled man of God posited that Rex Omar and other leadership of the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) will soon die same way Ananias in the Bible died.
According to him, Chairman of the organisation, Rex Owusu Marfo (Rex Omar), will suffer an agonizing death if he does not reverse the decision on taking royalties from the church.
More importantly, speaking to host of Abusua FM‘s late afternoon drive time show, Ike De-Unpredictable, Prophet Kumchaacha said, “I think it is the most satanic decision I have heard so far and it is something that shouldn’t even be a thought about.”
“The church is a place of praise and worship, not a business or entertainment place. So we pray for Ghanaians including these musicians,” he charged.
“For me, I am warning them, if they don’t change their minds soon, what befall them is calamity and miserable death just as happened to Ananias,” he warned.
