Gospel musical duo, Tagoe Sisters, is appealing to the government to come to the aid of musicians in the country as the outbreak of the coronavirus is having an adverse effect on them.
According to them, all the income generating activities that they planned for the year have been suspended.
Speaking in an interview with Joynews, the group asked the government to equally consider those in the entertainment industry when others are being given relief packages.
“We are not doing anything. We are home. We need your help. Please, solicit for all the musicians. We are all at home so we need help. They were sharing food for people, as for the musicians and actors, we are all home,” they indicated.
This, to some extent, comes to confirm a report by Music In Africa Foundation that persons in the entertainment industry have lost at least $1000 dollars between March and April because of the outbreak of the coronavirus.
The report stated that nearly 90 percent of the entertainers they engaged admitted that they need support to survive during this period of the pandemic.
