- Music artiste, Kwaw Kese claims the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) does not represent the interest of musicians
- He added that the current administration diverts resources provided by sponsors for the benefits of musicians
- The musician revealed that it is for this reason he does not pay his dues
Ghanaian hip-life artiste, Emmanuel Botchway, better known as Kwaw Kese, has branded the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) as the most disgraceful institution in the country.
The musician, who is the Chief Executive Officer of Mad Time Entertainment, argued that the union’s executives do not have the interest of Ghanaian artistes at heart.
Speaking on Atinka FM’s Akwaaba show hosted by DJ Candy Man on Friday, Kwaw Kese, stated that the Obour–led association receives funding from sponsors, but makes a small component of such resources available to the artistes.
According to him, he has been a victim of such acts by the union. It is for this reason, he claimed, he doesn’t pay dues, as no measures put in place by the union benefit him.
In an earlier report by YEN.com.gh, Kwaw Kese, who is reported to be an avowed critic of the Obour administration, faulted MUSIGA for sidelining musicians with respect to the recently held Presidential Grand Ball.
Kwaw Kese is well known for his hit album Abodam, released in the year 2007. It helped him win five awards at the 2008 edition of the Ghana Music Awards
