Alhaji Sidiku Buari, former president of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), has cautioned current president, Bice Osei Kuffour (Obuor) to heed to counsel.
“He must listen to people who have been there because they wouldn’t like him to make those mistakes that they did. He is trying to do his best but there is room for more,” he said.
Alhaji Sidiku Buari made this statement in an interview with Joy News, Thursday.
He cited for explained that he had been in constant communication with Obuor on how to go about the Ghana Music Week organised by MUSIGA, disbursing of funds to people and other activities.
“I have called him and told him several times that look, try and buy equipment for the musicians in the regions so that they can work and generate money for themselves with the money you (Obuor) is spending on the Music Week.”
Mr Buari added that spending money on musicians by handing over funds to them will make them come for more, but when funds are channeled into developing structures and systems, it will go a long way to help the industry especially with the veterans.
For some time now, the President for MUSIGA, Bice ‘Obour’ Osei Kuffour had been severely bashed from the Veteran Musicians Association of Ghana (VEMAT) over the use of funds.
Also, some hiplife and highlife artistes like Gyedu-Blay Ambolley and Criss Waddle had on some occasions questioned the candidacy and competency of Obuor.
In spite of the allegations, Obour has urged all musicians to work together with the executive body for the betterment of the Union.
