the Ghanaian culture through education and equip musical talents to be self

shift its focus to the regions after they’ve laid a strong foundation at the
national level.

welfare of MUSIGA members.
“This time round, we will also make sure to put measures in
place to help win back some our members who lost hope in the union by apprising
them with our new innovations. We think about their wellbeing,” he added.

financial backbone of the association—and failure of members to pay it has been
one of their challenges.

were not able to pay their dues as expected due to one or two things…and the
main source of finance is this payments made by them. We hope to strengthen
things and forge ahead as our mandates have been renewed. “

the improvement of Gospel music, Reggae, Choral and Cultural music across all
the regions in Ghana.
