It has really surprised us that the suggestion by Obour a week or two ago that MUSIGA used Ghc 2m allocated to them by government for ‘research’ has not caused more of an uproar in the music community.
No matter how you look at it, its ridiculous, and KOD has rightly pointed it out.
According to the ace broadcaster, it is ‘nonsense’ to suggest such a sum could have been used simply for ‘research’, research that no one knows the benefits it has accrued for musicians.
“How has it affected the musicians in this country?” KOD wondered. “It was a nonsense research.”
“Now has it benefited the musicians? To know what the number of musicians we have in this country?” he continued.
KOD added that MUSIGA must surely be made to account for the money, at a time when musicians make next to nothing from royalties.
“I have my challenges with the money that was given to MUSIGA. They found a way of trying to account for it but how has it benefited the musicians? I think that we can’t have musicians in charge of the musicians and not use the money given by government in a judicious way to affect everyone positively.”
“People earn next to nothing in royalties… It’s a challenge for me and I think that one day, they will have to account for how they really spent that money” he added.
