He won a 7-6 voting by the newly-elected Board members of the Ghana Right Owners Organization (GHAMRO), beating Nana Tuffour.

Ahmed Banda, popularly known as Bandex, retained his position as 1st Vice Chairman while the former President of MUSIGA, Mrs. Diana Hopeson assumes the role of the 2nd Vice Chair.

GHAMRO has for many years been bedevilled by a series of controversies concerning their elections and delayed royalties to members.

Legendary artiste, Kojo Antwi had earlier rallied support for both Rex Omar and Nana Tuffour saying any of the two candidates will do a wonderful job leading the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) as chairman.

Mr. Antwi in an interview with Kojo Preko Dankwa on Kasapa Entertainment on Kasapa 102.5Fm, disclosed that amongst the new thirteen (13) elected board members of the organisation, Rex Omar and Nana Tuffour are well experienced with issues of GHAMRO and have worked prudently for the organisation.

The elections for the new administration of the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) took place on the March 8, 2017 with the following thirteen (13) members forming the new board; Rex Marfo (Rex Omar), James Kweku Tuffour (Nana Tuffour), Augustina Addison, Bice Osei Kuffour (Obour), Diana Hopeson, Oheneba Kissi, Henry Bessa Simons and Nana Kwaku Duah Okyere (Tic Tac). The others include Benjamin Mensah, Ahmed Banda (Bandex), Kwasi Ernest Ennin, Seth Kwaku Amponsah and Francis Boahene.

In February 2015, music maestro Kojo Antwi was sworn into office as Chairman of GHAMRO) to serve a two-year term. He was sworn in together with eight other board members.
