Racky stated emphatically that Obour is not helping the music industry especially when it comes to musicians in the eastern region where they voted massively for him.
‘There are no project, structures or better still plans laid down by the union to help musicians from the Eastern part of the country’ he lamented.
Racky who is a member of MUSIGA, further revealed that, there are many talents in the Eastern Region that needs a little push for a breakthrough in the music industry, but with no projects, structures and plans from the union, they find it difficult to unveil themselves. Up and coming artist finds it difficult to find managers and ever monies for Studio fees.
