The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) has supported five veteran musicians with an amount of GHC5,000 each at a brief ceremony in Accra.
The five veteran music legends are A.B Crenstil, Jewel Ackah, Obuoba J.A. Adofo, C.K. Mann and Nana Kwame Ampadu.
In all, MUSIGA is supporting these five highlife legends with a total of GHC25,000.
The presentation follows the promise made by MUSIGA at the 2017 Presidential Grand Ball held at the Banquet Hall, State House last December.
At that event, the President of the Musicians Union of Ghana disclosed that selected veteran musicians would be supported with an amount of GHC10,000 cedis each.
However, they would only receive a physical cash of GHC 5,000 while the remaining GHC5,000 is invested in their names at First Banc, partner bank to MUSIGA in this regard.
According to a report by Myjoyonline.com, Mr. Percy Ayamba, the Chairman of Ageing Musicians Welfare Funds (AMWeF), said the initiative of the Endowment Fund, is expected to enable MUSIGA provide better for its aging or incapacitated members.
