Veteran musician, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley has blamed Alhaji Sidiku Buari for the woes of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA).
Alhaji Sidiku Buari served as MUSIGA President for eight years and handed over to Diana Hopeson after elections.
Gyedu-Blay Ambolley in an interview with Oyokodehye Kofi on Accra FM’s Highlife Time, accused the former MUSIGA President of crippling the Union by reducing the size of its electoral body.
According to him, Alhaji Sidiku Buari minimized the electoral body by ensuring that only 10 delegates are selected from each region to vote rather than all eligible musicians.
The ‘Simigua’ hit maker stressed that the act by the former president led to high levels of corruption and bribery within MUSIGA especially during elections.
‘…everyone musician used to vote. Sidiku Buari changed it and selected 10 delegates from each region. 10 people from each region, you can easily bribe them’, he said.
Gyedu-Blay Ambolley also stated that visa racketeering is now rife within the Musicians Union of Ghana which was spearheaded by Obour some months ago.
The musician revealed that these happenings within the Union has discouraged him from contesting to lead MUSIGA because the current cartel will prevent any change.
