Popular socialite, actress, TV Host and musician Michy has expressed her grievances on the current state of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA).
When asked about how to revive MUSIGA during an appearance on the show “Ultimate Entertainment Records” on Ultimate 106.9 FM, Michy argued strongly that the day-to-day administration of the union should not be left to old men and old women, but rather to young men and young women who have enough energy to run the union.
“The old folks are old and they do not know the demands of modern-day music which is dominated by young folks so they aren’t fit to lead the current generation,” she said.
Michy went on to say that the elderly are unsuited to lead the Union because they want to perform things that were done during their time but are no longer essential.
The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) was founded in December 1975 with the goal of promoting and preserving Ghanaian culture via education and educating Ghanaian musicians to be self-sufficient, creative, and hardworking.
However, the organization has been engulfed in a slew of legal disputes and concerns from members since the presidency of Bice Osei Kuffour terminated in 2019.
After Bessa Simons was forced to act as president, the union has been unable to pick a substantive president.
