In the MUSIGA president’s reaction the news was welcoming and that it was a long awaited development which would go a long way to transform positively the patterns of Ghanaian music.

Speaking on Citi FM’s Eyewitness News on Wednesday, Obour said his administration had forever pushed for such a move thus “it is rewarding that government has recognized the need to invest in the music industry. ”

He said MUSIGA would use the monies to set up a committee that would assess the areas within the music sector that would need funding and renewal.
