He indicated that the legacies f Labor would guide his leadership but would further improve upon what he did over his reign as President of MUSIGA.
The celebrated musician bemoaned the plight of some retired musicians who are struggling to make ends meet and emphasized the urgent need for the introduction of this scheme for all musicians.
He has also outlined some policies that would engage the younger generation in the adaption of this concept which he believed would make a big difference.
