Published

Ghana’s leader in voice and data services, MTN Ghana yesterday at the Fantasy Dome, Trade Fair treated customers to a night of indelible nine lessons and carols.

The Dome, which played host to the 10th edition of MTN’s festival of Nine lessons and carols was filled to the brim while expectant fans couldn’t resist the sound of the good music that echoed all around the space.

The CEO of MTN Ghana, Selorm Adadevoh in setting the tone for the night’s activities with his welcome address recounted some achievements, recognition and awards bagged by MTN for the year 2018 and dedicated them to the hard-working staff. He rounded up by thanking all the staff, trade partners, shareholders and board of directors for sharing in the vision and supporting.

Joe Mettle, a Ghanian gospel artist opened the stage with some hot worship and praise, followed by a performance by the one voice choir. Adina then came on to light up the stage with her silky Vocals. Kwesi Arthur then surprisingly popped up to wow the fans with his surprised performance of “Silent night, Holy night” and his smash single “Woara”.

MTN viva voices left no doubt as they inscribed their name as one of the top performers on the night with their craft and stage mannerism which swept the gathering off their feet. Led by Krymi, some participants of the MTN Hitmaker seasons from one till date also took to stage to satisfy their fans: Koo Ntakra, Torgbui and OV.

Lynx Entertainment’s jewel Kuami Eugene was at his peak on the night, so did Kofi Sarpong among others thrill the fans. Patapa as usual gave us his best with his rendition of the popular song jingle bells to the amusement of the crowd.

The Forster Romanus piloted event which was an inch above audience experience ended with a performance by Nacee as the night leaves more to be desired in 2019 simply because this year’s edition certainly raised the bar.

From back stage management, choice of performers, songs performed to stage set up and lighting. We can only congratulate MTN Ghana for continually repeating excellence.
