Obour Couldn’t Live Up To His Promise - D-Black

Rapper and label boss D Black has slammed the performance of the outgoing president of Ghana Musicians Union (MUSIGA) Obuor saying he has performed below average.

The Balck Avenue boss told KOD and Cookie Tee on the Starr Drive that Obuor, who is set to step down after holding the position for two terms, failed to deliver on his promises to musicians.

“He has performed below average…the most important thing for me was royalty collections and it has not gone well under him. He made a personal promise to me on that but he couldn’t live up to it. He even took me to Finance Minister’s office, at the time it was Duffuor. On the scale I will give him 40%,” he said Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Obuor has said an achievement he is proud of and would like to be known for is the establishment of the Ageing Musicians Welfare Funds (AMWeF).

AMWeF was established in 2013 to cater for the needs of veteran musicians in the country,

“It started as a benevolent donation fund. Every six months we give every member ¢200. Then they had about 102 registered members,” he told Hitz fm.

According to Obour, the AMWeF has grown in members and services to the veteran musicians.

AMWeF organises health screening for members and also partners with hospitals like Dampong Medical Centre and MDS Lancet to treat these old musicians of their ailment, he added.
