The President of the Republic of Ghana, H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has promised the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) a new national headquarters by the end of the year.

The President made this known whilst speaking at the sixth MUSIGA Presidential Grand Ball at the Accra International Conference Centre on Sunday, March 07, 2019.

According to the President, he has instructed the Minister of Works and Housing to relocate the Union following the commencement of the Marine Drive Project at the present location of MUSIGA.

President Akufo-Addo spoke about some of the initiatives by his government to develop creative arts in Ghana such as the work being done leading to the passage of the Creative Arts Bill which will involve the establishment of a creative arts fund to assist in the work of creative arts practitioners.

The MUSIGA President, Bice Osei Kuffour (Obour) called on corporate Ghana to continue to support the Union in its efforts to improve the lot of ageing musicians in the country which was his vision eight years ago when he sought to become the MUSIGA President. 

Obour also called on President Akufo-Addo to reintroduce music education at the basic level because of its potential to improve musicianship in Ghana and also its pedagogical benefits.

The sixth MUSIGA Presidential Grand Ball witnessed the honouring of six Music Industry Heroes and four Music Industry Pillars.
