He noted that due to the lack of funds to keep the organization afloat, the management came up with innovative ways to earn money.

Obour stated that when MUSIGA was given its headquarters, they developed a performance hall to rent out to artistes and the general public who wanted event venues.

“It’s one of our revenue generating ventures, a day’s charge is GHC 200 and it is used on Saturdays and Sundays. That is not any major source, as it cannot even pay for our water bill for a month. We have also rented four of our offices to a different organisation who pays rent because we need to survive as an organisation,” he said in an interview with Hitz FM.

The MUSIGA president opined that it made no sense to hold on to available space, when the organization need the funds to continue working.

Remarking on the negative feedback he gets from some Ghanaian artistes, Obour explained that he is unperturbed by their comments.

He said that these comments coming from musicians who are no members of the organization, and as such have no knowledge of the challenges facing MUSIGA do not bother him.
