Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) campaign against COVID-19 saw top Ghanaian artistes including Kofi Kinaata, Celestine Donkor, Paulina Oduro, Pat Thomas, Amandzeba, Samuel Kofi Agyemang, Rafius Amigo and Adane Best perform at the event.
The campaign is supported by the Ministry of Information, the National Commission on Culture, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), and Economic Commission of West African States (ECOWAS).

Before the campaign song was officially released, other artistes had been included on a video clip where they ventured their COVID-19 messages to Ghanaians. The main message in the song was to remind Ghanaians to wash their hands with soap under running water, properly wear nose masks, observe social distancing as well as avoid stigmatizing persons who have contracted the disease or persons who may have recovered from it.
The campaign comes at a good time when Ghanaians need to be reminded of the need to continue the fight against COVID-19. The government has also supported the project by reintroducing more rigorous measures such as a ban on social gatherings, closure of cinemas, and closure of land borders to ensure lives of Ghanaians are protected.
In the meantime, COVID-19 vaccinations are ongoing in the country. The president, his deputy, together with their wives and other government dignitaries have already taken their jabs as a way of encouraging other citizens to follow suit.
