President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bice Osei Kufour has indicated that the body’s decision to honour Ibrahim Mahama at this year’s Grand Ball is based on his contribution to the event since its inception.
Moments after Ibrahim Mahama, brother of President John Mahama was named among the people to be rewarded at the fourth edition of Grand Ball, some creative arts enthusiasts wondered what he had done for the industry to earn such a recognition.
But speaking on Peace FM’s Entertenment Review, Thursday, Obour as widely known said the contribution of Ibrahim Mahama to the event has been phenomenon.
“Ibrahim Mahama has been supportive to the Grand Ball since we started. Last year when we were auctioning Nana Ampadu’s guitar, he bought it for GHC 50,000,” he noted.
According to Obour, Ibrahim Mahama and three others will be given the Music Pillar Awards.
“It is given to three people but this year we chose four. We select from the private sector, public sector and stakeholders” he mentioned.
Other figures to be honoured are Edward Boateng, CEO of Global Media Alliance; Betty Mould-Iddrissu former Attorney General and Minister of Justice, and Kasapreko Company Ltd.
