Former President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bice Osei-Kuffour who is popularly known as Obour has explained why he deserves to be in the August House after his music days. Obour is saying this to critics who feel that he’s not too serious with his Parliamentary ambition.
In a recent interview, Obour reiterated that there are even hairdressers in the Parlament House and so he can also be there. He explained himself further:
“Who are our politicians? When you go to Parliament now, who are there? There is a hairdresser there. There is a businesswoman there. There are market women and doctors there. What stops a musician from being there? Is music not part of the things we do as a country? If not for anything, music plays a major role in most of our lives. Don’t we have entertainment? So there’s nothing wrong with having a musician in Parliament. At Parliament, we discuss tourism, creative arts, culture, and several other things that music is keyed in. It’s actually a plus for Parliament to have a musician,” he unveiled.
