Rich culture and entertainment hits the screens this Saturday as Adom TV’s entertainment magazine programme, Tigofest brings Ghana’s festivals back to life and national attention.
Flooding festivals with feisty, high-flying hiplife artistes, season two of Tigofest will be headlined by Kwaw Kesse.
Ghana’s eccentric entertainer will join Shasha Marley and Opiesie Esther and others this Saturday 30th August 2014 at Essikadu in Sekondi to celebrate the Kudum festival. The stop-over will be the first of four Tigofest events.
Kundum Festival is celebrated by the Coastal tribes of the Western Region of Ghana. The four month long festival is celebrated at weekly intervals from town to town between August and November every year. The main highlights of the festival are the stool cleansing, the ancestral prayers and the drumming and dancing that accompanies Ghanaian festivals.
The festival which is celebrated by both the Ahantas and the Nzema people of the Western region has a lot of legend behind it.
But Tigofest will notch up the excitement surrounding the festival when the train lands there this week-end.
The crowd-pulling train will move to Techiman on Saturday 6th September, 2014, Mankessim the following Saturday and end at Ho on Friday 19th September, 2014.
After a successful debut season, organisers feel well placed to pull off another exciting series as Tigofest moves up and down the length and breadth of the country Ghana.
Tigofest comes with festival diaries; a mini documentary that brings to viewers what they never knew about a traditional area.
It shows all the history, cultures, tourist attractions and many other things that make the place and its people unique.
The community-based show is sponsored by communication giant, Tigo.
With a Multi TV digibox, viewers will join residents in Essikadu celebrate Tigofest. It promises to be a wonderful experience as long as you make time to experience it.
