The inaugural TINA Festival will take place on 4th January 2019 from 2pm until late at Round Pavilion, Trade Fair, Accra, Ghana.
A new African sound has captured the attention of the world in recent years…Afrobeat. The sound has gained millions of followers from every corner of the globe. African music is fast becoming a force to be reckoned within the global music scene. The aim of the annual TINA Festival is to become the home of this sound and music genre. It will be the place where people go to experience the genuine lifestyle that comes with the music.
The festival will be a day party populated with a market fair and activities, and then an evening concert with performances from….Fuse ODG Afrobeats pioneer,, Sarkodie – one of Africa’s greatest hip hop artists, Stefflon Don, Joey B, Lethal Bizzle plus more to TBA soon.
TINA Festival will be to Afrobeat what Glastonbury is to Rock music. Beyond the music and the lifestyle, the festival will also promote the continent and Ghana in particular; becoming a catalyst for tourism and investment.
Global Afrobeats superstar Fuse ODG helped to create the TINA Festival. One of the leading pioneers of the sound, he has been using his music and influence to promote Ghana and Africa in a way that has never been done before. He is famous not only for his music and helping the rise of Afrobeats world-wide. but also for his tireless commitment to re-educate how Africa is perceived in the world.
Fuse’s efforts to spread this message have allowed him to connect with a variety of artists worldwide which have led to him earn the first Grammy Award by a Ghanaian last year . He has invited global superstars such as Ed Sheeran to stay with him in Accra, and gain an experience of Ghana aimed at changing global perceptions It is in that same vision that has led to the creation of the TINA Festival.
In re-uniting the Global African Diaspora, the Tina Festival will be part of wider series of events over three days held at Ghana’s most iconic venues…

Kwesi Arthur, Kuami Eugene, Patapa And Others Thrill At The 10TH MTN Festival of Nine Lessons & Carols.
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.
