Obour replies Shatta Wale, lists his achievements.
Ghanaian dancehall artiste,Shatta Wale,known in private life as Charles Nii Armah Mensah-Jnr went on a tweet rants on the micro-blogging website, Twitter some few days ago took the MUSIGA president, Bice Osei also known as Obour to the “gutters”.
In Shatta Wale’s series of tweets, he claimed Obour’s administration is fraudulent and continued that Obour uses MUSIGA money to fly his friends to America.
“Obour is incompetent, a gold-digger, and the fact that musicians are crying that they don’t enjoy the fruit of their labour” and a lot of things Shatta said in his tweets.
The MUSIGA president Bice Osei Kuffour, on the Pundit show on GHONE TV, has responded to Shatta Wale’s allegations. According to him, he sees it that Shatta Wale doesn’t live in Ghana because he’s done a lot since he assumed office in 2011 till now.
As part of his achievement he said that,he instituted Ageing Musicians Welfare fund, he initiated Ghana music week and a lot more.
“Since I assumed office, I’ve made sure I delivered everything I put across in my Manifesto. I led a research into the music industry’s contribution to the GDP and now, we all know the percentage GH music contributes to our GDP. I again, through Midland Savings and Loans has made loans accessible to musicians. We didn’t have festivals, a lot of musicians sit at home not playing shows, now we have the Ghana Music Week.”
“I think when it comes to music and development, we have to look at it with broad eyes. Development is a process, and when a musician feels like the plight of musicians has to change, fine but development doesn’t change overnight.”
Obour again revealed that, “the MUSIGA Grand Ball to raise money for the ageing musicians is there and now, we just introduced the MUSIGA academy and so to musicians feeling I’ve not done anything, what I can tell them is that, there can’t be a quick fix, development is a process.”
What I find interesting is Obour’s failure to enlighten the musicians on the real use of the 2million Ghana cedis that was given to him by the NDC government.That he normally explained was use for research–very flimsy and seems to be the genesis of the recent attacks from the musicians , not only Shatta Wale but D-Black as well.
