The acting President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA)

has revealed that the association is planning a virtual concert to

honour former President Jerry John Rawlings.

Bessa Simons said the concert is to appreciate Mr Rawlings for

his contribution to the music and creative arts industry.

“You know because of the pandemic, we couldn’t do what we wanted

to do for Mr Rawlings. He has done so much for the creative arts

industry that we want to let the world know what he has done

so that other people can emulate.

“The musicians show people what we have, even people

come to this country, they want to know our culture, our music,

our food and everything, he was a president who was always

pushing for that,” he told JoyNews’ Doreen Avio.
