End illegal recruitment of foreign musicians in the Maldives

Launched on the 1st March 2021, #TellMumAboutIt campaign from the Musicians’ Union of Maldives (M.U.M) aims to raise awareness and call for action against illegal recruitment of foreign musicians in the Maldives.

Using the hashtag #TellMumAboutIt, we want YOU to let M.U.M know of any illegal recruitments or any other sorts of misconduct you see, hear or face yourself, so that the Union can take proper measures to help you tackle the issue.
