The umbrella body for DJs in Ghana with an objective to secure the complete organization of all DJs for their mutual protection and advancement, Union Of Ghana DJs (DJUGA), has been formed.
The union which has received heartwarming welcome and endorsements from industry greats including Kuami Eugene, Kidi, Andy Dosty and Mr Ahumah Bosco Ocansey, has a prime remit to advance members’ knowledge and skills.
“One of our core objectives is to regulate members’ relations with their employers and/or employers’ associations, and with each other”, affirms Former programs manager at YFM and Acting president of the Union, Kwame Adu Gyamfi (DJ Killa Fingers).
Members of the Union include Best DJ of the Year 2020 at the Ghana DJ Awards, DJ Vyrusky who told TV3 in an interview last Saturday that “DJs in Ghana have waited for too long to see this union in motion. It’s a good initiative. We now have a structure”.
“We are going to work to maximize the employment and overall income of DJs as well as protecting and improving working conditions. We also offer advice, support and legal assistance based on every individual member’s needs”, affirms Daniel Badu, the Union’s acting Organizing Secretary.
DJs Union of Ghana (DJUGA) is the Ghana trade union for all DJs representing around 1,000 members working right across the music industry. It stands up for employed and self-employed DJs working in every area of the Ghana music industry, including mobile DJs.
