The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) has announced a groundbreaking concert scheduled for March 6, 2024. This exciting revelation came from none other than the President of MUSIGA, Bessa Simons, during the launch of Ghana Month on Joy FM.

The grand event, in collaboration with the Akwaaba Festival, will unfold at the forecourt of the National Theatre, offering a much-needed spotlight for budding musicians who often lack the opportunity to perform on significant stages. Bessa Simons emphasized the importance of providing a platform equipped with essential elements such as big stages and lights, describing it as a platform for young talents to showcase their full potential.


“We are inviting the managers in the corporate world; just look at them and see if you can do business with them because this is the future that we have,” stated Bessa Simons. This visionary initiative aims to connect these emerging artists with potential partners in the music and corporate industries, fostering a collaborative environment that propels the next generation of Ghanaian musical stars.

But the commitment doesn’t stop there. On March 5, 2024, a music and tourism workshop, coupled with health screening for musicians, will take place at the Accra Tourist Information Centre. This holistic approach highlights MUSIGA’s dedication to the well-being and professional development of Ghana’s music community.

March 11, 2024, marks the commencement of the “Let’s Play Ghana Music” project, a commendable effort by MUSIGA to reignite people’s love for Ghanaian music. The initiative will culminate in a concert at the Gold Coast Restaurant on March 30, 2024, promoting the rich heritage of highlife music.

In tandem with MUSIGA’s ambitious plans, Joy FM will play a pivotal role during the Ghana Month celebrations. Listeners can expect a musical treat, with 99.7% local music featured across various programs throughout March. The playlist will encompass diverse genres such as highlife, hiplife, reggae, dancehall, gospel, and folk music, encapsulating the richness of Ghana’s cultural and musical diversity.

This concerted effort aligns with the advocacy by various activists to champion and celebrate more Ghanaian music.
