Those managing MUSIGA are playing with it— Lord Paper
Dzigbordi hitmaker, Lord Paper has declared intentions to run for the president of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA).
According to him, he needed the position to champion a good course to better the industry for the players.
Announcing his intentions in a media interview, Lord Paper noted that holders of the MUSIGA office were casting lots with it.
“I am ready to grab the opportunity. I will be the President. I think those managing the industry now are playing with it,” he said.
Lord Paper did not indicate when he intended to contest for the position but he noted that the music industry was gold and did not know why the leaders were not making benefit out of it.
He stressed that those managing it did not have the requisite knowledge in managing such an industry, hence the failure for the industry to develop.
After Obour finished his tenure in 2019, elections for the union have yet not been held.
Bessa Simons has been acting as President of MUSIGA. He is also one of the candidates vying for the President position.
The elections were delayed due to the pending trial.
One of the Presidential aspirants, Ras Caleb Appiah took the union to court over some anomalies in the voter’s register and the entire system.
Before one could become a president of the union one needed to hold an executive position at MUSIGA to qualify for the President’s position.
