Benard Amakwah has descended on fellow gospel star Patience Nyarko over a decision made by the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) to get churches to pay for using the intellectual property of musicians.
Recall that Abraham Adjetey, the administrator for GHAMRO hinted that his outfit is putting measures in place for churches to pay for any musical work used during church service in a telephone interview with Onua FM a few days ago.
The revelation did not impress Patience Nyarko who kicked against the move, insisting that gospel musicians have no original songs of their own.
At this juncture, Bernard Nyarko blasted Patience for her ‘lack of knowledge.’ and displaying her ignorance in public.
“For lack of knowledge my people perish. Patience Nyarko should have made enough money from her songs, everybody around her should have been happy.
If you lack knowledge, understanding about something, shut up and pray for the one who is pushing an agenda that will benefit you.”
Bernard Amakwah further stated that if Patience Nyarko and her team feel uncomfortable with the words he used they can sue him in court.
