Among those aspiring to lead MUSIGA, Ras Kuuku believes Caleb Appiah stands tall on the basis of how well he has managed himself as a person in the Music Industry.
He believes that entrusted with the position of the MUSIGA Presidency, Ras Caleb Appiah-Levi will excel by bringing his expertise to bare.
”The thing should be given to Ras Caleb. Rasta Man needs to reign the offices of MUSIGA to also bring into expertise his good works. It has been long for the others to lead in position, it is time for a rasta man also to lead affairs. Some of us are there to support and give our advice for betterment of it. Ras won’t disappoint, I know and feel inside my instincts.” he said on the ‘Best Entertainment Show‘ on Wednesday hosted by Halifax Ansah-Addo.
According to him, Ras Caleb has done well for himself over the period in aspect of literally controlling the music Industry as well as heart for a leadership position like that of MUSIGA.
The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) has in the past few months been in the spotlight for the wrong reasons.
After postponing its national elections on two occasions, they had to put a hold to it due to a court injunction requested by a Presidential aspirant Ras Caleb Appiah-Levi.
According to Ras Caleb, the voter’s register was fraught with inaccuracies and requested that those anomalies were rectified before the election could be held.
What seems to have broken the camel’s back is the appointment of the 1st Vice President of the union, Bessa Simons (also a Presidential candidate) as the Acting President of the association.
This was done when President Bice Osei Kuffour handed over power on the basis that his tenure has expired.
In the meantime, Ras Caleb has registered his displeasure about the act and has called it “unconstitutional.”
