Evergreen highlife and Afro-jazz artiste, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley, has accused executives of Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) of stealing from Musicians.
Ambolley, who was on radio said he was saddened by what he referred to as the “retrogression” in Ghana’s music industry.
“Lots of retrogression going on. We are going back men”, the ‘simigwado man’ told Bola Ray.
Ambolley insisted that the current executives of MUSIGA are misusing their mandate and office.
“…That place is there for the welfare of musicians and they are not doing so”, he bemoaned, adding: “The government had to pump in about two million and that money should have been used for the welfare of Musicians and they are not doing so”.
When asked if he could not see how evidently well MUSIGA was doing following their recent ball, Ambolley said they were all cover-ups.
“All of them are cover-ups…I never lie…I know what I’m talking about. They’ve already misapplied it and their trying to do some cover-ups about music week and all that to throw some dust into the eyes of the public”, he stressed.
The old artiste who insists his music is better than what is being produced in recent years by young artistes, said he may not be willing to assist MUSIGA when invited to sit on the board.
“I would have to think about it. If I am invited to sit on the board. I don’t want to be a part and parcel of bad seed because I have a name to protect”.
