The leadership of the Musicians Organisation Global (MUSIGLO) last Friday donated to help veteran Highlife musician K.K. Kabobo with his medical expenses, as part of efforts to support musicians. 

Since images and videos of the veteran musician, who is battling liver disease, began making the rounds on social media last week, the news of his failing health has been concerning.

The money that K.K. Kabobo received was provided by the Solidarity Fund, which MUSIGLO established at the end of 2023.

The delegation, led by the organisation's founder and president, Mrs Deborah Freeman, presented K.K. Kabobo with an undisclosed sum of money on the organisation's behalf. 

During the presentation, Mrs Freeman revealed that MUSIGLO was dedicated to the wellbeing of all musicians, whom she views as positive role models for young people. 

She said the donation was a part of the organisation's attempt to support the musicians during difficult times. 

Following the donation, Mrs Freeman told the media that the Solidarity Fund was established to support members’ welfare, encourage high-caliber musicianship, and lessen financial hardship among both new and seasoned artistes.

The fund specifically strives to support all musicians who subscribe to MUSIGLO, as well as aging musicians, upcoming musicians, underground musicians, music bands, choirs, and industry professionals. 

She went on to explain that the Solidarity Fund's four primary emphasis areas are where donations from donors and member artistes are combined to maximise its impact. 

The four main areas of attention are as follows: (a) assistance with healthcare and income support for veteran musicians; (b) pensions matching contributions for musicians; (c) artiste and music promotion development; and (d) assistance with recording and promoting music for up-and-coming and underground musicians.

She stated that, "Musicians deserve better than to die poor," stressing that the Solidarity Fund will set ambitious goals to alter the course of musicianship worldwide by utilising its influence as a catalyst for change. 

Kabobo's family expressed gratitude to MUSIGLO's leadership for their assistance. 

Additionally, they expressed gratitude to Ghanaians for their ongoing support of the musician's condition.
