This is the time for us to help ourselves- Bessa Simons commends SSUE
Acting President of the Musicians Union of Ghana, (MUSIGA), Bisa Simons has commended award winning singer, SSUE for supporting aged musicians in the midst of coronavirus outbreak in the country.
According him, due to the pandemic, most musicians are not working, and the situation had adversely affected many, especially, the aged, sick and the vulnerable.
Against this backdrop, he made an appeal to other well-to-do musicians to support the vulnerable, for which SSUE adhered to, and supported the course.
He told The Spectator, that the support made up of cooking oil, soap, hand sanitisers, branded face masks, souvenirs, canned fish, rice, and water among others received at the head office of MUSIGA, in Accra on Wednesday, May 6,2020 would go a long way to bring some level of relief to the musicians amidst the COVID-19 pandemic
Bessa Simons said the gesture meant that musicians could help themselves without always resorting to outsiders.
He further commennded SSUE for taking the lead, adding that the relief items would go to all the 16 Regions of the country.
SSUE told the paper, she did it in honour of aged musicians, “it is good to support them because they have a lot under their sleeves for young ones to learn, and be inspired. One day, we will also grow old, and need the support of others.”
She called on fellow musicians to follow suit, adding that it is not always that old musicians should count on the support of outsiders.
Speaking on her new projects this year, she hinted on her upcoming singles, which would be released before the end of the year.
