Disk Jockeys (DJs) in Ghana have unveiled a new association dubbed the DJs Union of Ghana (DJUGA).
The Union, which is the first of its kind, will serve as an umbrella body for DJs in Ghana and secure a complete organisation of all DJs for their mutual protection and advance members’ knowledge of the art.
“One of our core mandates is to regulate member’s relations with their employers for better working conditions,” PRO for the union Merqury Quaye said in an interview on Hitz FM.
He stated that the Union leaders will maximize the employment opportunities for DJs and their overall income.
“There are a lot of DJs out there who got into the job out of passion without any formal knowledge about the profession that they are into.”
“So through DJUGA these DJs are going to get the opportunity to get education through conferences, workshops that are going to be organized.
“So that at the end of the day every DJ gets to understand the rudiments of the profession”, Merqury Quaye said.
He explained that the Union will seek to bring a code of conduct to to help guide DJs through the craft to avoid chaos or division among DJs.
Since the announcement of the DJUGA, many industry personalities including DJ of the year at the 2020 Ghana DJ Awards, Vyrusky, DJ Ikon, Andy Dosty, Kuami Eugene, KiDi, and Mr Ahumah Bosco Ocansey have welcomed and endorsed the initiative which is spearheaded by activist and DJ advocate, Merqury Quaye.
The DJs Union of Ghana which operates with the mantra “Behind Every DJ”, will hold its first general meeting on Saturday, May 29, 9am at the Sunlodge Hotel.
