Speed Up Work On The Amphitheatre Building Projects – MUSIGA Pinch Govt

The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) has appealed to the government to expedite the building of the amphitheatres it has pledged to the music space.

An official communique released by the Acting President of MUSIGA, Bessa Simons on World Music Day, mentions that constructing more performance venues will encourage performers “to perform more regularly to improve their revenues and also allow the general public to enjoy live music performances.”

“As we celebrate World Music Day after, also known as Fête de la Musique, which is an annual celebration that promotes the power of music and its universal language let’s be minded about what the day stands for,” the communique further emphasized. 

According to Bessa Simons, World Music Day motivates musicians of all genres to perform in public spaces, creating a vibrant and inclusive environment for the masses to enjoy music globally. 

“It is a day that musicians and music lovers from around the world come together to perform and enjoy various genres of music on this special day,” he pens. 

Additionally, the ‘Belembe’ hitmaker proceeded and uttered that as Ghana attracted international residents via the aegis of the ‘Beyond the Return’ agenda, centres for artists and entertainers to exhibit their skills will be an enormous augmentation for the agenda. 

The matter of the absence of entertainment venues has been on the list of a lot of media outlets over the years. 

After copping with its commitment to deliver nine (9) theatres across various regions, the government has made another promise of constructing five (5) amphitheatres. 

On Wednesday, April 26, 2023, the Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mark Okraku-Mantey cut a sod for the first out of the five amphitheatres in Kumasi. 

Meanwhile, key industry players are anticipating that both the government and private investors focus more on the creative arts since it is a powerful sector for nation image building and earning enormous revenue.
