Sunny Neji, Asha, Ohio join MCSN’s board
Showbiz personalities, Sunny Neji, Asha Gangali and Matthew Ohio, have been appointed to the board of the Musical Copyright Society Nigeria.
The appointment of Neji and Gangali followed MCSN’s agreement with the Performing Musicians’ Employers’ Association of Nigeria, which provides that the music body would have two seats on the board of MCSN. On the other hand, Ohio’s appointment was said to be based on his wide interest and representations in the music industry, which MCSN would leverage to increase the quality and quantity of its membership and repertoire.
While announcing the appointments, the Managing Director of MCSN, Mayo Ayilaran, said it signified the ‘bringing on deck’ of more hands to work for the building of required structures in the music industry. He also stated that it would strengthen the capacity of the collective management of copyright in Nigeria. He added, “With the partnership of PMAN and MCSN, prosperity for the Nigerian music industry and musicians is assured.”
Reacting to his appointment, Neji said, “It is indeed a privilege to serve in this capacity. I promise to do my best to add value to MCSN and indeed the industry at large.”
Gangali, who gladly accepted the appointment, promised to work with other directors in line with the goals and visions of MCSN ‘to become the best collective management organisation in Africa and one of the best in the world’.
