There is no unity in the music industry – Obour
President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bice Osei Kuffour was also known as Obour has revealed that one of the key weaknesses facing the music industry is that there is no unity in the music industry.
Speaking at the maiden edition of Zylofon Music industry party on the strengths and weaknesses of the music industry, he acknowledged that the industry is full of potentials which he considers as strength but engulfed with several weaknesses as well.
According to Attractivemustapha.com the president of MUSIGA said for every industry to grow, it needs a certain level of unity, direction, properly laid down structures among other necessities.
“Because the industry and it’s bodies are not very united it doesn’t help the industry in collective bargaining”, Obour said.
He added that another major challenge facing the industry is that the players do not boast of their own.
“There’s another challenge that I don’t know how to theme, it’s the fact that Ghana as a country does not boast of its own, Ghana is one of the few countries that play more foreign content on radio stations than local songs”, he added.
Obour suggested that for this problems to be solved, the institutional framework and the laws guiding the industry must be reviewed.
