Togbe Ghana

GHANAIAN DANCEHALL artiste, David Kumordzie, popularly known as Togbe Ghana, who is contesting the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) chairmanship position, says MUSIGA needs the services of competent people to manage it in order to create job opportunities for members.

He said his election to the highest position would result in an improved recognition and respect for the union as well as contribute to improving the living standards of musicians.

Since he announced his intention to contest the MUSIGA Greater Accra regional chairmanship position, Togbe Ghana has received plenty assurances from a large number of musicians who have pledged to vote for him.

According to him, his key objective is to bring unique abilities that will pull everyone together.

This, he explained, would mean strengthening, energising and resourcing the entire union, particularly at the regional level, to function effectively.

He told Beatwaves that when elected as MUSIGA Greater Accra regional chairman, he will work very hard to restore the image, pride and dignity of the union, adding that he has plans to ensure that in the short to long term, Ghanaian musicians would be recognised and respected both in Ghana and beyond.

He mentioned that his administration would make conscious efforts to create jobs with local and foreign partners, including event organisers, cultural attaches of the various embassies and corporate managers across the country.

He added that he will provide the Greater Accra regional office of the union with internet radio that will be used to provide information and also promote the works of the musicians.

The aspiring chairman who promised to put in place policies that would protect the interest of the musicians indicated that his administration would, develop local talent by providing live band equipment and rehearsal facilities for the Greater Accra regional office.

He will also institute the Accra MUSIGA Awards Night to reward the contributions of the musicians in the region.
