Members of the Executive Board of the MUSIGA Presidential Grand Ball have paid a courtesy call on the First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo, to thank her for her continued support for the Ageing Musicians Welfare Fund (AMWeF).
The visit was also to discuss the upcoming Presidential Grand Ball slated for March 29 at the Accra International Conference Centre.
