Acting President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Mr. Bessa Simons, has failed to answer a question about the alleged MUSIGA locked up investments at defunct gold dealership firm Menzgold Ghana Limited and Midland Savings and Loans.
Social media have been rife with stories and reports that the Musicians Union of Ghana has millions of monies locked up at these financial institutions.
According to the rumor, the musicians union invested about GHS70, 000 and GHS265, 000 at Menzgold and Midland respectively under the tenure of Bice Osei Kuffuor.
In a conversation with Agyemang Prempeh on Legends on TV XYZ, Bessa Simons refused to confirm or deny the wildspread rumor.
“The point is every organisation and its issues, so, if it was done genuinely, I mean, I don’t see any wrong with that,” he said.
When Agyemang Prempeh probed further he was still economical to give out information about the MUSIGA and set the record straight.
The current MUSIGA President told the host he will not make public investments the union has made at any financial institution.
He said, “My point is I’m not going to sit here and disclose anything from MUSIGA because if it’s true or otherwise, when you visit MUSIGA [office] we will divulge it. Every organisation has investment somewhere, have you heard the various organisations disclose it on TV? No, so I will leave that one there. My point is, that every organisation’s issue stays within the organisation and everyone has very good intentions for the group to be self-sufficient.”
Mr. Simons mentioned that registered members of MUSIGA know the truth of the matter and he will not disclose to persons not belonging to the union their finances.
“Every organisation has investments. I haven’t heard journalists sit somewhere discussing their investment, so I won’t talk about MUSIGA, here. If you want to hear it come to office. Members of MUSIGA know about it,” the 63-year-old said on the Legends programme on Sunday, 23 August 2020.
The legendary singer, however, disclosed that MUSIGA has several investments in the country but it’s not in his interest to declassify them.
“We’ve investments at several places I won’t tell you, it’s MUSIGA’s affair.”
