The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) held its final workshop in Tamale on May 30 and 31, 2024, as part of the ‘Leveraging Digital Tools to Generate Revenue’ series.

We are grateful to the Ghana Skills Development Fund (GSDF) for their support in making this possible.”

Idris Baba, the Northern Regional Chairman of MUSIGA, added, “hosting the final workshop in Tamale has been an honor. Our local musicians are now better equipped to navigate the digital landscape, and I am confident we will see a positive impact on their careers and the music industry as a whole.”

As part of this initiative, MUSIGA will establish a Technical Resource Centre at its Accra office. This center will serve as a hub for continuous learning and support, offering resources and guidance to musicians navigating the digital landscape.
