Life after presidency is either a go-back to previous dealings or a new career path. Soon to come will be the end of the Obour MUSIGA reign as president and as such the 2005 artist of the year custodian is making plans to come out with an album after office.
In an interview with Melvina Frimpong Manso on Suncity 97.1 FM, Obour shared, “MUSIGA job is time-consuming so I couldn’t combine it with active music. I am preparing to come out with an album. I know many people have missed me. I was much focused. I was not just an ordinary president. I wrote a manifesto so that was my guide.”
Taking over from Diana Hopeson, Obour, beyond doubt has had quite a successful reign, which he gives the applauds to himself and the few he was privileged to work with. He disclosed in a part of the interview, “Leaving this job is a mixed feeling. I am happy I didn’t disappoint those who voted for me. I delivered all that I promised. My name had an influence on my job. I am a hard person. There is nothing like it cannot be done in my dictionary. The help of other executives and their prayers was also important and aided me to come this far. I was very active in the music scene before taking the MUSIGA job. Other musicians also showed me the respect and that made me excel.’
Obour further hinted that one of his accomplishments by far is that he has created 4,000 jobs through his initiatives since assuming office. He again added that he might take up other roles related to his everyday activity interest, “I will think of what to do next with my family. I like sharing the word of God, schooling, politics and other things. But I haven’t decided what to do next as at now.”
We await your album, Mr. President!
