This, she claims, will allow the organization to operate more efficiently for musicians across the country.
The call comes only two weeks after Ghanaian dancehall musician Stonebwoy urged that MUSIGA be taken over by a commercial business in partnership with the government. “Musicians Association of Ghana,” he tweeted. “I believe a private body should take over the affairs and administer them in conjunction with the government.”
MUSIGA’s main responsibilities for artists across the country include social security, assistance for musical activities, intellectual property rights, and so on.
“There’s been a call from your friend in the business that MUSIGA should be privatized. What’s your position on that?” Offishal Dhamie was questioned in an Instagram Live interview on GHOne TV’s page.
“Perhaps, you know, maybe,” she said. My question is, are you working where you are, and is it difficult for you to do so? Okay, best of luck in your endeavors to earn this money. If not, turn it over to the private sector and let it function. So, whatever it takes, I’m sure it’ll be beneficial. “
I don’t want to say much, but all I will say is to speed up whatever they are doing and try to put us on that route where we are working hard, hearing the music, and being paid, she said when asked what could be done to make GHAMRO more efficient.
