The Maiden Edition Of “The Fufu Party” Set To Take Off

Published

on

The maiden edition of ‘The Fufu Party’ takes off on Saturday, the 20th of November, 2021 in the Eastern Regional capital, Koforidua. The aim of this event is to promote our rich Ghanaian food which is deeply embedded in our cultural heritage.

Speaking to Mr. Kwabena Bediako Antwi-Dako, the Chief Executive Officer of Wise Ink Concepts, he said, “the reason for choosing fufu is because it is arguably the most popular food across the country and beyond. The event also aims at making our local foods highly attractive to the youth. We must be proud of who we are and what we have as Ghanaians”. From preparation to consumption, fufu is a fascinating meal.

Made from either a double combination of cassava, plantain, cocoyam, and yam, it can be eaten with different types of soups.

The popularity and wide acceptance of fufu mean it is a binding gel and a proponent for national cohesion and local tourism booster. The event will be characterized by the dishing out of free fufu only. The accompanying protein option of one’s choice will be purchased.

There cannot be a party without music and since we are promoting Ghana, Highlife music will definitely be present. An assembly of some of Ghana’s finest Highlife musicians will be in action. Dada K.D, K.K Fosu, Kofi Nti, Dada Hafco and Koo Ntakra will dish out some melodies and rhythms for the attendees. A host of public figures will also be present for the occasion.

The Fufu Party is sponsored by Tonyx Hotel, Suites & Spa, Estrella Beer, Bel-Aqua, Josh Travels, MJ Grand Hotel, Flora Tissue, JL Properties, Dede’s Classics, Visible Communications Limited and extracts of natural spices from Onga. Media partners include Kasapa FM, Angel Broadcasting Network, SVTV Africa, Agoo FM/TV, Bryt FM, Freedom FM, Afeema FM, Taste FM and Republic FM. The event is organised by Wise Ink Concepts.

The festival aims to teach, explain and explore cultures through a pioneering approach; combining art, creative activations, premium continental cuisine, and African music.

Festival activities Twitter and Afrochella are expected to collaborate on will include a series of #AfrochellaSpaces hosted by Twitter Spaces; an exciting new product that allows live audio conversations on Twitter.

The Spaces will host artists performing at the festival, and will provide an opportunity for them to connect and interact directly with fans.

There will also be a Twitter Music Panel Discussion at the Afrochella Music Museum; a curated experience that will take the audience on a journey through the past and into the future with live performances, art installations, digital and printed imagery, as well as on-site activations at the festival.

“This partnership represents a unique opportunity to share in the richness of Afrochella, and a deepening of our commitment to being a home for diverse peoples, cultures and perspectives. We understand that Twitter is a reflection of what’s happening; so by leveraging products like Spaces, we will support and be part of trending Afrochella conversations on the Timeline. And with the recently launched custom Emoji and GIF, we are excited to bring the festival to life for thousands across Ghana, the wider continent, and beyond”, said Uche Adegbite, Senior Director, Product Management and Initiative Driver of Twitter’s Global Participation program.

In a statement, Abdul Karim Abdullah, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Culture Management Group, organisers of Afrochella said, “We couldn’t be more excited to have Twitter on board as partners to deliver an unforgettable Afrochella experience this year.
