“Beyond The Return Will Help The Gov’t Engage In Mutually Beneficial Trade – Nana Akufo – Addo

Published

GREATER ACCRA, GHANA (www.georgebritton.com) - President of the 4th Republic of Ghana, His Excellency William Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has, on behalf of the Government of Ghana, extended his sincere, heartfelt gratitude to the people of Ghana for practically contributing their quota, and literally helping to make the "Year of Return" initiative a great success.

According to the Commander-In-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces, the welcoming attitude and the warm Ghanaian hospitality proved to be the strongest attraction to hundreds of thousands of the Ghanaian kith and kin from the African diaspora, who thronged the shores of the country located along the Gulf of Guinea and Atlantic Ocean, in the subregion of West Africa to commemorate the "Year of Return", revealing that, the proverbial Ghanaian hospitality won once more.

Early 2019, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo affirmed emphatically that, 2019 is “The Year of Return”, this is to commemorate this quarter-centenary since the anchoring of the first slave ship in Jamestown, Virginia. Ghana is the only public-private African Nation to initiate the recognition of 400 years of slave trade to encourage people of the African diaspora to make the “birthright journey home” as part of “the global African family”.

President Akufo-Addo revealed that, the "Year of Return" proved to be exciting, and afforded Ghana the chance to re-establish, intensify and solidify the relations between those based on the Continent and those in the living in the Diaspora, explaining that, the friends and relatives who visited Ghana felt very welcome, enjoyed their stay, and, as a result, the country is, once again, the toast not only of Africa, but also of the world.

He commended the Inspector General of Police, the Chief of Defence Staff of the Armed Forces, and the officers, men and women of the country's security services for their sense of professionalism and dedication to duty, which enabled them to preserve the peace and security of the country in the course of the celebration. This explain, By the grace of God, no untoward incident occurred.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo urged Ghanaians to demonstrate this same level of excitement and commitment that characterized the "Year of Return", and help make it also an enduring success as the country begin the new initiative of "Beyond the Return", which will entail that, the government engage in mutually beneficial trade, investment and cultural co-operation with the African Diaspora.

As Ghana drew curtains on the ‘Year of Return’ President Akufo-Addo launched the “Beyond the Return, which has the rationale of “engaging Africans in the diaspora and all persons of African descent more positively in areas such as trade and investment co-operation, and skills and knowledge development”. Its purpose was to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the time when the first 20 West African slaves were brought to the Commonwealth of Virginia, which subsequently became part of the United States of America, thereby initiating one of the most unfortunate and barbaric episodes of human history – the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.

With 75 percent of the slave dungeons built on the West coast of Africa, through which the slaves were transported, located in Ghana, he stated that the country believed that it had a responsibility to extend a hand of welcome back home to Africans in the diaspora.

The second half of the 20th century, President Akufo-Addo added, witnessed a great blow for human freedom and progress, when the African peoples, in the wake of Ghana’s shining example, liberated themselves from the colonial and imperialist yoke and the racist ideology of apartheid and emerged as free, independent peoples to construct new nations of hope and advancement.

Nana Akufo Addo concluded that, he's confident that, Ghanaians can imbibe in themselves, a deep consciousness and understanding of the goals and history of the African peoples to ensure that the 21st century is, indeed, the African century, the century of black people the world over.

King Promise Leads Music Lovers To The Promise Land

Published

on

I was at the La Palm Hotel Gardens on Sunday night for King Promise’s PROMISE LAND and it was better than I imagined. After my experience at the LivespotX Festival, I went to the event with little expectations, just to work and get content for Ameyaw TV.

The event was well attended, sold out I would say, for the capacity of the garden as it was set up. The entrance to the main space was set up with photos of King Promise and served as a cool spot for taking photos.

An interesting observation was that the crowd was well behaved and mannered, in fact, it was a gathering for the ‘cool kids’ of Accra and those who visited for holidays from the UK, US, Canada, Germany and Israel.

While we waited for Mr Eazi and his friends to come on stage, party songs from DJ Juls, Dj KCrack and MC El Baby kept us entertained.

Like all Ghanaian shows, the program which was billed to start at 7 pm, saw the rising UK based singer, Tracy Selasi take the stage at 10 pm. She rocked the crowd with her killer dance moves. Other upcoming musicians like Ofei, Camidoh and many others set the pace for the night.

After almost 30mins of performances, there was nearly an hour’s interlude of DJ’s smiling rag-tag popular hits of all genres. The anxiously waiting crowded started to get restless!

Singer Efya came on at 11:35 and galvanized the crowd with a massive sing-along to her 2019 hit songs including ‘Saara’.

Finally, it was time for the king of the land to shine. Slender and with his signature bald head and big ‘camboo’, King Promise finally burst onto the scene at 12 am – 5 hours after the show started, singing what is perhaps his most popular hit “Oh Yeah”. His high energy was endearing and he launched into a rousing rendition of many of his biggest hits helped along by the crowd. It is obvious that at this time Afro-trap is more of a studio genre than live performance art, and only two DJs and a few dancers accompanied King Promise.

He is still to learn the nuances of live performance but that will surely come; for the time being his irrepressible energy and the sheer number of hits he has under his belt are almost enough to carry the show.

What came next was unexpected: the show became a parade of King Promise’s friends, collaborators and mentors who each sang one or two tunes while the star of the night thanked them and largely jammed along like an MC.

From Medikal, Joey B, La Meme Gang, Kidi, UK based acts, Kojo Funds, Eugy Official, Kwamz and Flava who brought out popular Ghanaian dancers, Incredible Zigi, Dancegod Lloyd to perform a choreographed piece to their hit show ‘Shoo’

Of course, it was nice to see the Maestro Kojo Antwi come out and perform their song ‘Bra’, Mr Eazi vibing with his arm around Promise as the crowd went crazy, or Sarkodie who gave a spectacular performance of their song ‘Can’t Let You Go’.

Music duo, R2bees were the only acts billed to perform that failed to show up because they were out of the country.

The Promise Land 2019 finally came to an end at 1am with King Promise thanking his fans for supporting his album ‘AS PROMISED’. He had spent one hour on stage, a gift for the fans, and a star studded way of partying away 2019 and promised to make Promise Land 2020 bigger and better.

Apart from the delays and a quick end to the show, the organizers did a great job on the set up for the VIP and the VVIP areas. Security was spot on and the media had enough space to move around.
