Brong Ahafo Needs Competent MUSIGA Executives – Kofi Oppong Kyekyeku

The CEO of News Hunter Magazine, Kofi Oppong Kyekyeku (KOK)
has called for competent leaders to steer the affairs of the Brong Ahafo branch
of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA).

Speaking on Suncity Radio’s Showbiz 971 in Sunyani, the
Outspoken Journalist brought the leadership of the Union under criticism for
failing in its bid to effectively communicate with the public as well as show competence
in its leadership.
According to KOK, the Brong Ahafo MUSIGA has been
unsuccessful in living up to expectation since it is very difficult to obtain
any relevant information from the union when the need arose as the leadership
failed to relay information effectively to anyone.
KOK recounted his experience with the leadership of the
union when he once called on them to ask for information on a talent hunt which
the union was organizing.
“Recently, it came out that there was to be a talent
hunt organized by the Brong Ahafo MUSIGA in collaboration with GHAMRO. Media
outlets were served with notices and I called the leadership of the union to
retrieve information on the event but they kept putting me off and eventually,
I got nothing out of them,” he stated.
This, he described as worrying and a show of gross
incompetence on the part of MUSIGA leaders.
He again went back to the comments of Mr Bessa Simons, the
Vice President of MUSIGA when he once described the critics of the union as
ignorant and without facts on what was going on in the union and its
Kofi Oppong Kyekyeku said that the ineffective communication
in the union was to account for the unavailability of “facts” as Mr
Simons claimed because criticisms were made based on available information
which in MUSIGA’s case, not much was ever available.
He cited an instance like the research MUSIGA apparently
conducted under the leadership of Bice Osei Kuffour (Obour) during the
erstwhile NDC government with a whopping GH¢2m. The general public did not
receive the needed clarification on how the entire amount was dispensed.
KOK therefore called on the leadership of MUSIGA to make the
necessary amendments to these flaws.
The CEO of News Hunter Magazine again noted that many a
musician from the Brong Ahafo region always left to realize their potentials in
other regions and said this was not in any way helping.
He then admonished the up and coming musicians in the region
to join the Brong Ahafo MUSIGA in order for them to vote for people who are
competent to become leaders of the union and who will serve in the interest of
all for the good of the union.
