Music Council of Ghana Punches Diana Hopeson – For Asking Critics to Stop Unnecessary Battle Over the GHC 2million Budget

Diana Hopeson


Per a copy of a statement GhanaCelebrities.Com has on our desk, the Music Council of Ghana MCG is not too happy with some comments former President of MUSIGA, Mrs. Diana Hopeson, made to a media house some weeks ago and has thus replied her.

Mrs. Hopeson had told Razz Newspaper that players in the industry should be mindful of the way they are calling on MUSIGA to account for the GHC 2m government budgeted for the creative art sector in its 2012 fiscal budget; because, the noise presents the industry as one made up of not too disciplined people and that could scare investors as well as the government from giving the industry another support in the future.

Below is the unedited copy of the rejoinder GhanaCelebrities.Com is privy to (unedited):


It’s at times strange but yet true, that often those you expect to have set the records straight to settle the confusion dust will rather by their efforts cause people to become even more desperate to try and find out the source and cause of the dust themselves, by any means best known and convenient to them.

What is Mrs. Diana Hopeson, the immediate past president and Patron of MUSIGA saying? By her revelation to Razz Newspaper only a couple of weeks ago.

It might affect the chances of the industry getting assistance from Government and other donors”. The ex-president by her submission is admitting probably for the first time unlike some of the other executives, that the 2 million Cedis whose disbursement and accountability has become “the folkland Islands” over which combatants in the industry are unnecessary fighting and killing themselves, was given to the Creative Arts Industry, and not solely to MUSIGA as a body even though they spearheaded the facilitating and acquisition process.
