GHANAIANS DIVIDED OVER GHANA @ 60 GOSPEL ROCK SHOW

Ghana is set to mark her 60th Independence celebration with a mega gospel rock show. The multiple award winning musician Don Moen, the voice behind several renowned hit songs, including ‘God Will Make a Way’, ‘Thank You Lord’ among others will perform at the International Gospel Concert on March 7 at the Independence Square.

Many Ghanaians have taken to Social media platforms to express their views on the choice of headline artiste by the planning committee.

Many Ghanaians have expressed their views as to why the committee decided to invite an International artiste instead of using the opportunity to project the local artistes in the country. Below are some concerns raised by Ghanaians online.

  

Jefferson Sackey, Chairman of the Media and Publicity Sub Committee of ‘Ghana 60 Years On’ planning committee explained in an interview with Myjoyonline.com that the concert is a private initiative.

“This is actually a private initiative. A group contacted us that they are in the process of bringing in Don Moen and we thought that it is a laudable idea to have him in the country especially as we are celebrating 60 years of existence as a nation,” he said.

Other activities lined up for ‘Ghana 60 Years On’ celebration include ‘Celebrating Ghana Music 60 Years On With MUSIGA from March 10-12 at the Independence Square.

There will be a Jubilee Culture/Arts Festival in all the regions, a 60 Sounds of Ghana on November 1. The CD captures authentic Ghana music through the years.

There will also be a MUSIGA (Musicians Union of Ghana) International Music Concert on December 24.
