The President, Nana Akufo-Addo has promised to provide the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) a new national head office by the end of this year.

He made this announcement at the 6th MUSIGA Presidential Grand Ball which was held at the Accra International Conference Centre on Sunday, April 7, 2019.

“It was brought to my attention by Obour that the execution of the Marine Drive Project which will develop aggressively our tourist sites to bring them to world class standards complete with the the requisite amenities and facilities will affect the building that serves as the head office of MUSIGA,” he said.
“I have instructed the Minister of Works and Housing to meet with the leadership of the Union and settle on an appropriate replacement by the end of this year, 2019,” he added.
Nana Addo also spoke about the government resolve to develop the creative arts in Ghana. He reiterated that the Creative Arts Bill which will result in the establishment of a creative arts fund was at its final stage.
The MUSIGA President, Bice Osei Kuffour aka Obour called on corporate Ghana to continue to support the Union in its efforts to improve the lot of the ageing musicians in the country which was his vision eight years ago when he sought to become the MUSIGA President.
Obour also called on President Akufo-Addo to reintroduce music education at the basic level because of its potential to improve musicianship in Ghana and also its pedagogical benefits.
Six Music Industry Heroes and four Music Industry Pillars were honoured at the programme. The Heroes were Prof. Kofi Abraham, Pat Thomas, Naa Amanua, Asabea Cropper, Kwadwo Akwaboah and Abirekyireba Kofi Sammy.
The Music Industry Pillars are Dr. Kofi Amoa-Abban, Vodafone, 4Syte TV and Kwame Sefa Kayi. The Distinguished Personality Award was conferred on Ransford Antwi, founder of Space FM and Sun City Radio.
There were amazing performances by Patience Nyarko, Adina, Tic Tac and Samini whose hit song ‘Linda’ got the President to dance.
Other performances were by Bob Pinodo, Asabea Cropper, Naa Amanua, Pat Thomas and Daddy Lumba who invited the Maestro Kojo Antwi on stage.
Also in attendance were the First Lady, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo; the Vice President, Dr. Bawumia and his wife Samira Bawumia; ministers of state, members of the diplomatic corps, and people from the creative industry.
