MUSIGA Hit With Defections and Resignations from Regional Executives

The sudden defections and resignations from members of the Central and Brong Ahafo Regional branches of the Musicians Union of Ghana could be a course for concern although the President of MUSIGA, Bice Osei Kuffour otherwise known as Obour has rubbished claims been made by these defected members and treated their concerns as selfish interests.

A recent resignation release sent to by the Brong Ahafo MUSIGA secretary stated among many other reasons the decisions for his resignation. Read the unedited resignation letter.

Dear General Secretary

Musician Union of Ghana (MUSIGA)

National Head Office

Accra – Ghana.


I have enjoyed and appreciated the opportunity to work for the union for the past years. As you know, although I don’t receive any salary or monthly allowance but i love my position and always do the best I can to ensure that always deliver the best possible results for the union.

According to the aims and objectives of the union, the union must seek “to protect the creative and performing rights of all Musicians in the country, and to cater for the welfare of the retired Musicians”

But to me it seems all MUSIGA programmes and activities are centered in Greater Accra which is not the only Region in Ghana as a Country. Moreover, it’s sad and disgracing that, unpopular musicians do not get any benefit from the union, not talking of the musicians at the remote areas. I have also been in my position as a regional secretary and national executive council (NEC) member for the past one year and I have never heard of any donation to any retired Musician.

I feel much distressed and disappointed and i wish to resign from my current position as brong ahafo regional secretary for MUSIGA effective from now, and find another Association who shall see my worth and value as a member.

Although I have a negative feeling towards these, i extend my best wishes to all my colleagues which I have treated as my second family.

Sincerely Yours,

Israel Boakye

Secretary B/A Musiga.
