Popular Hiplife Artiste, A-Plus has vehemently come out to allege that the President of the Musicians Union of Ghana Obuor is corrupt.
According to him, Obour has misappropriated funds generated from the tribute song produced by members of the union during the death of the late President Professor Attah Mills.
He made this comment on The First Show aired every morning on First News Network (FNN) hosted by Smart Takyi Nixon on Friday.
According to A-Plus, the popular tribute song that was produced by MUSIGA for the Late Professor Attah Mills was produced by and paid for by the union but unfortunately, Obour has copyrighted the song in his name and all proceeds are going to him.
‘Obour is corrupt; if he doesn’t understand, he should take it to court. He’s corrupt number one because you see the music that was produced when Professor Attah mills passed, ‘bebree na 3y3 me ya ooo,’ that song was paid for and produced by the Musicians Union of Ghana. The Musicians Union of Ghana owns the rights to that song.
A-plus went on to say that, by virtue of this gesture by Obuor, he has abused his office and should have been asked to resign.
‘If any one person can put all these big men in the music industry together, and produce music that belongs to the Musicians Union of Ghana, and Facebook, YouTube, Instagram tell him the copyright belongs to the president, that’s an abuse of office and that was the day we had to call Obuor to resign,’ he told host Smart Takyi Nixon.

That song was produced and paid by the Musicians Union Of Ghana so MUSIGA owns the rights to that song. Now take that song, try and do a video and put it together and try posting it on social media; Facebook will tell you that Obuor owns the copyright to that song and so you cant use it which means that all the proceeds that come out of that song goes to Obuor.
