The former board members, who were taken to court by some musicians for mismanagement of funds collected from all musicians, went back to the GHAMRO office to take over from the interim board members appointed by the court to manage and orderly plan for the next elections to appoint new board members.

Gyedu Blay Ambolley, Ekow Micah and 20 others were arrested by the police for not respecting to order from the court to stay away from the affairs of the organization. Speaking on Peace FM's Entertainment Review show after his release, Ambuley vowed that the election which is to take place on the 7th of February will not come on, thereby going against the orders of the court.

In July 2014, the Human Rights Court ordered the board of the Ghana Music Right Organization (GHAMRO) headed by Carlos Sakyi, to step aside. The ruling followed an action by Nana Kwame Ampadu and 99 musicians, composers, song writers, music producers and music rights owners accusing Carlos Sakyi of embezzling funds collected on behalf of music rights owners in Ghana.

The 99 musicians who brought the action include, Nana Kwaku Duah (Tic Tac), Daniel Amakye Dede, Rex Omar Owusu Marfo, Charles Kwadwo Fosu (Daddy Lumba), Reginald Rockstone Ossei (Reggie Rockstone), Edward Nana Opoku (Hammer), Emmanuel Samini, Emmanuel Botwe (Kwaw Kese), Alfred Benjamin Crentsil, Theophilus Tagoe (Castro), Belinda Ekua Amoah (Mzbel), and Nana Tuffour.

Meanwhile, Kwaw Kese who was a guest on the Entertainment Review show, commented on this issue saying that he didn't understand the relevance of GHAMRO or what the body was doing for Ghanaian musicians in the country. He therefore asked that the organization should be closed down.
