Akwaboah, one of the artistes to perform at MOGO
Citi FM has suspended the organisation of its major music event, Music of Ghana Origin (MOGO), in line with government’s precautionary measures against the spread of COVID-19 in Ghana.
Over the years, MOGO has promoted authentic music of Ghanaian origin and also celebrated the biggest names in highlife music.
This year’s edition was slated for March 28 at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC), with performances from Ofori Amponsah, Akwaboah, Tagoe Sisters, Gasmilla, Kwan Pa Band and Evergreen Band.
But in press statement by the Accra-based radio on Sunday, the concert has been suspended alongside other programmes until further notice.
Concert goers with tickets would, therefore, have their moneys refunded to them.
“We will announce new dates for the event as soon as the situation improves. Refunds for all tickets already purchased will be made available to patrons. We apologise for the inconvenience caused and we encourage everyone to frequently wash your hand with soap under running water for at least 20 seconds, use a good hand sanitizer and cover your nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing. If you experience symptoms, call emergency hotlines immediately,” the statement added.
MOGO joins other shows like the Accra Fashion Week, 3Music Awards, 68th Legon Hall Artistes Night, Adina Live Concert, among others, which have suspended their activities as a result of the outbreak of coronavirus in Ghana.
