It’s almost a week since the sudden death of Ronnie Coaches of Buk Bak hit Ghanaians, and as customs and traditions demand, the Musician Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) is organizing a ‘One Week Celebration’ for the gone Hip-life soldier.According to a statement put together by Nana K.O Duah (a.k.a. Tic-Tac), who is the Chairman of the Greater Accra Regional Branch of MUSIGA, “the union is putting together a special select committee to announce the plans set for the day.”
It must be remembered that Ronnie was one artiste that helped in making the “art form Hip-life” of Ghana music industry today, so, “our plans are to provoke the history and contribution of this group in the music industry through the media.”
“We are planning to merge this event to remind the Ghanaian and the rest of the world about the volumes of artistic works that has come out of this artistic struggle of this very unique group.”
He continued, “with the help of the media houses we would like to do a celebration and fund raising event to help the family of our departed brother, friend and national icon. MUSIGA would like the media to dedicate a program to the memory of the group and Ronnie as a person, give him the necessary media attention and airplay of old and new songs as well as creating awareness for the upcoming funeral arrangements.”
The ‘One Week Celebration’ will fall on Thursday, November 28, 2013, at King Solomon Dansoman Accra, from 8am. It is open to all and sundry.
Dates of funeral, fund raising and celebrating concert would be announced later via different media houses across the country.
