Percy Ayamba, Chairman of the AMWeF Endowment Fund, speaking at the presentation noted that the money, an initiative of the Endowment Fund, is expected to enable MUSIGA to better provide for its ageing or incapacitated members.


He said the decision to establish the Endowment Fund is to ensure the sustainability of the support Ageing Musicians Welfare Fund (AMWeF) provides for its members.

 

Speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries, Nana Ampadu expressed their gratitude to the President of MUSIGA for his visionary leadership and efforts to support the ageing musicians.

He commended the members of the Presidential Grand Ball for their efforts at ensuring the success of the Grand Ball.

 

The President of MUSIGA, Bice Osei Kuffour (Obour) expressed the Union’s appreciation to all the sponsors and supporters of the Grand Ball concept.

 

He reiterated his commitment to working for the welfare of ageing and incapacitated musicians which is in line with the undertaking he made to the industry at his election in Tamale in 2011.
