I never received a dime from OGB Music – Fameye

Ghanaian highlife singer, Fameye, has revealed that he never received a dime from the GH¢2.5 million sign-on money from his previous record label, OGB Music, as circulated in the media.

According to him, the sign-on money was used by the label, headed by Ogidi Brown, to shoot music videos and other music-related expenditures and not for his personal use.

Speaking on the Entertainment Segment of TV3 New Day, the award-winning artiste mentioned that even though he has parted ways with his former record label, they contributed to the shoot-up of his music career.

Fameye stated that though he has parted ways with the former label after paying an undisclosed amount of money, monetary gains from streams of some of his works are channelled to his former boss.

He said he has decided not to fight over the ownership songs recorded under the former record label for the sake of peace.

“I am just happy I have been able to pay. He still has my songs. He is taking monies from the streams of my songs.”

Born Peter Famiyeh Bozah, Fameye explained that feuds between artists and record labels are usually businesswise.

He stated that some record labels perceive that artists signed on their labels have nothing to offer due to the help rendered to them (artistes) to usually give them exposure and promote their music.

Fameye advised young artists to be mindful of the contract they sign when people express interest in helping them hone their talents.
