Current president of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bice Osei Kuffour during last Vodafone Ghana Music Awards announced that, he was going to run for a second term.
Musicians, Daasebre Gyamena, Gyedu Blay Ambulley and now Music Producer Appiah Dankwah popularly known as Appietus have shown interest in contesting Obour during MUSIGA elections in October, 2015.
“I am going to contest because I believe this is the time for a drastic change and I believe if I should win I will take the industry very far. There are standard practices when it comes to showbiz and particularly music all over the world but I think the current administration is not up to the task and I strongly believe I will do a far better job.”
“We lose huge amount of money in Ghana every second just because simple structures have not been put in place and it seems the current administration talks more than they act. There are standards practices all around the world which means we can only adapt but the current administration is just sitting around”.
“I have been on Obour’s neck for sometimes now but it seems as if things are just slow. I know Obour is doing the best he can but I believe I can do better. I have contributed to Obour’s administration but I believe I can turn things around more expediently than Obour”.
“It is not like I have anything against Obour but I think we need to move faster than our current situation so as to have a better future for the young and upcoming musicians in Ghana and even the ageing musicians”.
