The Musicians Union of Ghana’s (MUSIGA) Ghana Music Week Festival suffered limited attendance on day one when stars billed to perform at the Black Star Square could not mount the stage when less than 30 patrons brought their frames to be entertained on Friday night as part of Ghana’s diamond jubilee celebrations.

The poor attendance forced Kwasi Nyarko-Ofei alias Root Eye who was billed as the emcee to dish live reggae music given that he is a notable singer and performer himself.

The Director of Reggae and Dancehall at MUSIGA put up a brave face but many have blamed poor publicity as one factor which led to the negligible attendance despite music notables being on the bill.

President of MUSIGA, Bice Osei Kufuor alias Obour says another set of performances is set for today involving 60 musicians today.
