Quest for leadership of MUSIGA

The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) will go to the polls on June 26, 2019 to elect a new leader who will steer the affairs of the union about the future 4 years.

Clever Nkansah is the Chairman of the Committee set in place to organise the union’s elections. According to MUSIGA, the elections will be done in Accra, Kumasi, Takoradi, Bolgatanga, Cape Coast, Northern Volta, Wa and Tamale, in collaboration with the Electoral Commission of Ghana.


There are quite a few definitions, interpretations and theories of leadership. A single definition is that it is “the psychological procedure of accepting responsibility for task, self and destiny of others”.

Leadership is a human (symbolic) interaction which modifies the perspective and behaviours of other individuals in get to satisfy team targets and desires.

Leadership is a make any difference of developing in persons the capacity for accepting duty, and this, it has been observed, can – and indeed, will have to be taught and learned.

Investigate and popular mythology counsel that the most significant attribute for leaders is charisma, defined as “a individual magic of management arousing specific well-liked loyalty or enthusiasm”. Efficient leaders produce a attractive foreseeable future vision for followers, outlining what the tangible outcomes of aims must be like in the long run.

Another essential characteristic of leaders is intelligence. Intelligence is not synonymous with training lifelong mastering is an important aspect of management. Becoming educated is also an critical part of leadership, but it does not make a person a chief.

A ultimate attribute of good leaders is eyesight. Each individual leader need to have an plan the place he is likely.

There are a number of theories that try to describe management usefulness in group circumstances. A person of these theories is the trait idea of leadership which sights management effectiveness as dependent on specified properties of the unique.

On the other hand, it is an accepted reality that leadership traits are not totally inborn but can also be acquired as a result of finding out and knowledge. In addition to bodily traits, selected character attributes have been assumed to be connected with fantastic leadership.

A record of some of the traits contains self-self confidence, enthusiasm, assertiveness, duty, creativity, originality, dependability, honesty, significant-wondering means, intelligence and capability to communicate successfully.

Obuor’s achievements

The leadership of MUSIGA above the previous 8 yrs by Bice Osei Kuffour (Obuor) has acquired combined, essential assessments from musicians, bloggers, entertainment critics and other field players.

There are those people who believe that the past eight yrs have found a lot of advancement in the union. Kwame Dadzie in has detailed Obuor’s achievements as such as Ageing Musicians Welfare Fund, Collective Rights Management with GHAMRO and Rebranding of MUSIGA.

Other folks are govt subvention of GH¢ 2 Million, MUSIGA Academy, Midland-Ajumapa Company Loans, VGMA Collaboration, Regional Assistance for Capacity and Constitutional Modification, distribution of Masloc autos.

Beneath Obuor’s administration, “A Complete Examine of the Music Sector in Ghana, commissioned February 2014 by MUSIGA funded by the authorities of Ghana and supported by the Entire world Financial institution, was conducted by KPMG.

The union for the initially time was able access authorities funding by budgetary allocation of GH¢2 Million for investigation, songs fair and peace campaign, potential setting up and undertaking administration.

Obuor had mentioned GH¢800,000 was used for the investigation. It has been alleged that President Obuor did not demonstrate how the cash was expended.

Musicians’ money

One tangible end result for seeking to be a member of the Musicians Union is cash flow. There are those people, especially musicians, who give a thumbs-down to MUSIGA and would not sign up for the union for the reason that they imagine the organisation has not brought any meaningful modify in the day-to-working day daily life of the practising musician.

A lot of musicians in Ghana do not have a regular stream of revenue, enable by itself choose gain of the Ajumapa Small business Financial loans, preserve and devote in any mutual resources. A lot of musicians are living from gig to gig, “from hand to mouth”, to borrow Sarkodie’s epithet.

Appealing properties of a MUSIGA President

The President of the Musicians Union in several nations around the world does not abandon his/her vocation as a practising musician to pursue the working day-to-day administrative operate of the union.

What MUSIGA desires is an “affective” chief, an particular person who tends to be the friendly, outgoing human being with potential to build intra-team cohesiveness alongside all songs genres.

In my opinion, the new president ought to be a change agent and will have to encompass himself with audio administration professionals and consultants who can create enterprise proposals to solicit and obtain funding to help the several pursuits of the organisation.

He need to set up an administrative office environment with buildings, lines of conversation for correct accountability and transparency to defuse the perception of the community that MUSIGA is a corrupt organisation. He ought to be accountable and transparent to the rank and file of the union.
