Opposite of the saying that goes “build your ark before the rain comes”, Ghanaians will always wait and get beaten by the rain before we start thinking about building our arks.
Over the weekend, some of the giants in the Ghanaian music industry were humiliated in Nigeria after they flew from Ghana all the way to Nigeria to perform a show during a brand launch of their record label in Nigeria.
Sadly for these home claimed ‘kings and queens’ Ghanaian artistes, Nigerian audience at the event pretended they were listening to a lullaby being sung by these artistes and humiliated them without not even a single person dancing to their performance.
However, The Musician Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) after realising the humiliation given to their artistes have started mounting pressure on the Ministry of Communication in order to release the broadcasting bill which has been submitted to the ministry long ago.
According to the president of MUSIGA, Mr Bice Osei Kuffour aka Obour, the bill will be addressing some minor issues concerning how to control the Ghanaian airplay of local movies and music as a means to promote Ghanaian culture.
Here are the words from the union’s president, “This issue of foreign versus local content on our airwaves is of great concern to us as a union and we believe it’s in our national interest to regulate the amount of local versus foreign content we play or screen on air,” he said.
