It has been 8 years since the then young and energetic Bice Osei Kuffuor aka Obour took over from his predecessor Diana Hopeson as the president of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA).
Opinions about his performance in office, has been polarized. Some of his achievements include the Aging Musicians fund he instituted which is funded by the MUSIGA grand Ball, partnering with Charter House; organizers of the Ghana Music Awards amongst others. But perhaps one issue which many feel has cast a blight on his efforts as president of the union, will be the GH2 million that was allocated to his office by government. Most industry pundits and players alike feel, that allocation, could have better been spent than the way it was used.
One of such industry players who feels Obuor has failed miserably, is award winning music producer Appietus. In an interview with PM on YFM’s Dryve of your Life in Takoradi, the Azonto fiesta hit maker opined that Obuor could have done better.
‘Well if you compare the state of the union (Musiga) and the music industry as a whole, what Obour has done, is insuffient. He could have done a million times better, the industry is still the same as he came to meet it. I would score him 2/10’.
