MUSIGA Hot Over Ghost Names

Pressure is beginning to mount on the Musicians Union of Ghana

the union's Public Relations (PR) team. For close to two years, the

Union under the leadership of Bice 'Obuor' Osei Kuffour has been

in Ghana form part of its impeccable PR team. The names of these

journalists have however remained a mystery and this has become a

major issue of concern among discerning Ghanaians in the industry.

Doubts of the authenticity of this claim have become an issue of

concern especially when MUSIGA has still not been able provided a

single name to back its claim. Meanwhile, entertainment pundits and

several art writers have concluded that the Union's inability to

provide the identity of these journalists as requested simply means

that monies are probably being paid to 'ghost names'. According to

some key players in the entertainment industry, it is impossible for a

Union that has been struggling to manage its corporate image and

several issues ranging from accountability, through mass resignation

to poor communication among others, to have a PR team including
