    The 2011 edition of Citi FM’s Music of Ghanaian Origin Festival (MOGO) has been launched at the Citizen Kofi Entertainment Centre in Accra on Thursday.

    The ceremony took the form of a forum that brought together both the present and past generations of musicians who shared ideas on how to transform the industry.

    Among the dignitaries who graced the occasion were the president of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bice Osei aka Obour, Carlos Sakyi, C. K Mann, Mike Eghan, KK Kabobo, Kaakyere Kwame Appiah and lawyer Moses Foh Amoani.

    The event kicked off a three-day celebration of Ghanaian music which runs from December 1 to Saturday, December 3.

    The grand event of the MOGO festival falls on Farmers’ Day, December 2, through a musical concert at the National Theatre of Ghana, which would be followed by the first ever Awards and Dinner Dance on Saturday.

    A wide range of stakeholders in the music industry, the media and the public attended the forum, which discussed relevant issues relating to the music industry.

    Taking a critical look at the Ghanaian music terrain, law lecturer and panelist at the forum, Moses Foh Amoani, blamed challenges in the sector on the lack of clear policies to regulate and ensure quality standard.

    He lauded Citi FM for putting together the MOGO festival which he described as both entertaining and educative.

    The MOGO Festival is sponsored by MTN; in celebration of their 10 millionth milestone and is supported by Zenith Bank, Logistics Movers, MUSIGA and other media partners.

    It is powered by Citi 97. 3 FM.
