Industry News: MUSIGA Clears the Air on 2Million Cedis for Ghana’s Music Industry

“The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) has cleared the air about government’s GH¢ 2 million budget allocation to the Union.

According to the Union, the allocation follows a proposal they submitted to government through the Ministry of Chieftaincy and Culture and Ministry of Trade for financial assistance.

Minister of Finance, Dr Kwabena Duffuor in his presentation of the 2012 budget last Wednesday, November 16, announced that government had set aside GH¢ 2 million to MUSIGA for the development of the creative arts industry.

The news was not well received by some stakeholders of the industry who have questioned why government singled out the music industry for that amount of money leaving out other sectors like visual arts, performing arts, movies, publishing among others.

But spokesperson for MUSIGA, Okyeame Kwame told Adom Entertainment News that the Union presented a proposal to government for funds to facilitate their activities.

He said the proposal contained a five point development plan drafted by the Union’s new executives to rebrand the music industry in Ghana. . .” has the full story.
