The maiden edition of the Ghana Media Music & Dinner Night has been held successfully at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC).
The event in Accra brought together media practitioners, traditional rulers, embassies, CEOs, political actors, as well as sports and movie personalities.
As the tagline of the evening was “Annual Ghana Media and Music Dinner Night” two of the ever-green Ace Hiplife artistes, Adane Best and Obrafour, took turns to entreat the well-attended audience with spectacular performances.
The legendary Hiplife artiste Obrafour crowned the night with some of his hit tracks like ‘Penpenaa’, ‘Moesha’, ‘Heavy’, and ‘Akatuapa’ after Highlifer Adane Best had opened the show with some of his household hits like ‘Gyatabi’ and ‘Onoko’.
The annual Ghana media music and dinner night, according to the Communications Director for the event, Ms. Rebecca Ekpe, is a yearly celebration of media excellence, dedicated to honouring and acknowledging the achievements of media personalities in Ghana, both past and present.
The event, she further noted, also seeks to discover and invest in the art and act of journalism in Ghana while creating opportunities for knowledge transfer and sharing between the Ghanaian media and their contemporaries from around the world.
Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Lakeside Village and Net Village, Dr. Benard B. N. A. Yartey in a post-event interview said, “What we just witnessed is good for a maiden event. I will rate it a little over 80%, and that is good for a maiden edition. We had some teething challenges, but we will iron them out in the second edition.
It is going to be annualised, and we promise to raise the bar higher in our subsequent edition,” he assured.
The maiden edition of the Annual Ghana Media Music and Dinner Night was partnered by UMB Bank, Rosewood Residence, Trap (the Radio advertising people), and Forward Media Group.
