The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) is the country's body for all of its musicians and music professionals. It was incorporated in 1975 and has over 4000 members. MUSIGA is affiliated with several ministries in Ghana, including The Ministry of Chieftaincy and Culture, Ministry of Tourism, Ministry of Education and the National Commission on Culture.

With a mission to promote and preserve 'Ghanaian culture through education and equipping the Ghanaian musician to be self reliant, creative and industrious,' MUSIGA is governed by a National Executive Committee elected at a National Congress .

The union offers its members help with music contracts, copyright registration services, pension and insurance, welfare fund for its aging members and a loan service. It also helps organise Ghana Music Week, Ghana Music Awards and the Grand Ball.

Its current president Obour (real name Bice Osei Kuffour) was elected in 2011. He won a second election in 2015.
