The former president of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) has called on musicians in the country to educate themselves in order to become professional musicians in the near future.
He noted that education gave him more information on what he needed to do as a practicing musician to meet the challenges ahead.
He noted that when musicians were well educated, they could communicate and understand each other better, adding that a good educational background would give them the opportunity to understand various contracts they signed with event organizers and their executive producers.
Speaking to BEATWAVES in his office in Accra, Alhaji Sidiku Buari, who is also the former vice president of the International Federation of Musicians (FIM), also advised the musicians to invest their money in viable businesses to secure their future.
“Musicians in Ghana, both young and old, should invest in any profitable venture in order to enjoy life when they retire”.
He however appealed to the record companies to invest in Ghanaian musicians, saying there were many talents in the country.
He also advised musicians to upgrade their skills through training programmes that would take them through the rudiments of writing good lyrics, playing of instruments and handling the business side of music.
