Acting President of the Musicians Union of Ghana(MUSIGA), Bessa Simons has disclosed that the group is planning something huge in memory of the late first President of the Fourth Republic, Flt.Lt. Jerry John Rawlings.
The former President was laid to rest on Wednesday, January, 27, 2021.
Speaking to Sammy Flex on Zylofon FM’s Showbiz Agenda programme on Tuesday, and monitored by this paper, he said, even though, the late JJ Rawlings had been buried, it was not finished yet.
“We are planning something big for the late president be rest assured, we will show our gratitude and love in a different way,” he revealed.
He added that MUSIGA had not forgotten the legacy of the former President, through whose ingenuity gave them their headquarters, among other support anytime they lost a musician and called on him.
“JJ Rawlings has been there for musicians more than any president and he is one person we hold in high esteem,” he said.
Bessa Simons further noted that a lot of factors caused the delay, adding that a tribute song would be part of the package.
For him, “it does not matter the time, the most important thing is, it will be in the memory of the former president. The best is yet to come.”
