Nana Ampadu suspended from MUSIGA 8/27/2008

Accra, Aug. 22, GNA - Nana Kwame Ampadu and Mr. C. K. Morrison, both veteran highlife musicians and members of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), have been suspended indefinitely from the union.

"The NEC in consultation with the National Executive Council, the highest body of MUSIGA, has on this day 21st August, 2008 passed a resolution to suspend indefinitely the two executives from MUSIGA," a statement made available to the Ghana News Agency on Friday said. Until their suspension, Nana Ampadu was the General Secretary of MUSIGA and C. K. Morrison was the Welfare Officer.

The statement signed by Mrs Diana Hopeson, President of MUSIGA, said the two were suspended for forming a separate collecting society outside of MUSIGA and for undermining the efforts of MUSIGA to wind the existing one, Copyright Society of Ghana (COSGA) and form a new collecting society, a group formed to collect royalties from musicians.

It noted that the behaviour of the two amounted to conflict of interests and a violation of Article 20, Section A and B of the MUSIGA constitution, which prohibited members of MUSIGA from being members of other musician unions or collecting societies not affiliated to MUSIGA.

Article 20, Section A of the MUSIGA Constitution reads: "No MUSIGA member, shall be permitted to hold membership in any union of musicians not affiliated with the MUSIGA, or in any other organization, association of musicians or collecting society that has goals or engages in a pattern of conduct undermining or weakening the legitimate interest or the MUSIGA, or any affiliated antiquated."
