Participants will be exposed to a variety of facets of Ghanaian culture during the course of the three-day event, including food, clothing, antiques, and more.

“The Akwaaba portrait has been an inspiration all over the world so trying to get people to like the Akwaaba Festival isn’t too much of a big thing. We have the portrait and we now want to have the festival. We spoke with the tourism ministry and they want to support us.

“You should expect something big and different because we are bringing the whole of Ghana under one roof; our heritage, our culture on 6th March at the National Theatre. We are going to give you the best of all so Ghana has to be prepared,” Mr. Osae said.

Participants will be entreated to three days of well-planned and culture-themed activities including; a mini-fair, which will include a food bazaar, and an arts and crafts display.

Stage performances were cultural dances like Agbadza, Kete, Adowa, and other dances from other ethnic groups.

Comedy, Drama and Music concert night will follow shortly afterward with some acrobatic displays.

“Ghana Fashion Show’ will see runway displays of Ghanaian traditional wear by some selected renowned fashion designers.

Mr. Joe Osae, the event’s administrator and project director, implored the media to support the effort in his speech and noted that it aimed to present a positive trajectory.

Additionally, he urged the media to serve as an advocate for advancing Ghana’s tourism agenda.

With some assistance from the Tourism Ministry, Osae stated that the yearly event, which would be sponsored by Ceejay Multimedia, will shed more light on the rich culture and traditions of Ghana.

He claimed that the Akwaaba image, which became the nation’s international hospitality icon, is still serving its role.

The Highlife Time show will crown it all up with performances from industry greats; participants will be entreated to endless authentic Ghanaian music.
