Vice President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bessa Simons has laughed off suggestions that ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas should turn his attention to the entertainment industry.
Since Anas Aremeyaw Anas released his ‘Number 12’ exposé on sports, there have been incessant calls for him to divert his attention to the governing body of the creative and art industry.
However, the Vice President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bessa Simons, believes that Anas would be wasting his time if he gets into any investigation concerning MUSIGA.
According to him, Anas will find no acts of corruption against MUSIGA if he conducts investigation into their activities.
“Anas should try an investigation at MUSIGA. Apart from the fact that he may be wasting his time, there is no money at MUSIGA. Who is going to take a bribe? The person you are going to take a bribe from wants money from you,” he told DJ Premier on Accra FM.
The call to investigate the entertainment industry and MUSIGA for that matter comes as a result of the perception of mismanagement of the GHS 2 million that was allocated to the music sector by the government in 2012 as part of its fiscal budget.
