Musician Danny Beatz is not happy with the leadership of Musicians Union of Ghana – Musiga for remaining silent on the ongoing campaign by musicians and other stakeholders for media houses to play 80% Ghanaian music on their stations.
The musician in a tweet and post on his social media questioned the union and Music rights collection agencies on their role in the ongoing campaign.
Musicians are calling for 80% local music play and till now the Musicians Union of Ghana, Musiga which mandate stand as the welfare of our Musician have not come out to even declarer support for his members ?
