Edem performing on stage
Popular Ghanaian artistes last Saturday, November 18 thrilled thousands of music fans at a musical concert dubbed “HoodTalk Music Festival” held at the Jubilee Park, Ho, in the Volta Region.
With the help of Virtual Hub and Volta Regime Music Group (VRMG), the organisers of Edemfest, DreamChild Foundation arranged the event to generate money for the construction of five pediatric hospitals across the country, including one in the Volta Region.
An ecstatic crowd made up of over 15,000 Ghanaian music fans from all walks of life thronged the venue to partake in the event.
The concert was an all night affair which provided non-stop entertainment till the break of dawn.
The event was graced by a number of personalities which include the Agbogbomefia of Asogli, Togbe Afede XIV, and Ho Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Divine Bosson.
Several well-known artistes including up-and-coming ones performed at the event, which was headlined by Edem, one of the top performers in the Volta Region.
Some of the popular artistes who thrilled fans at the event alongside Edem include Tinny, Epixode, Jupiter, and Kelvyn Boy.
Edem closed the event with a powerful live band performance. All the performers during their performances encouraged everyone to support the pediatric initiative.
A visibly moved MCE Divine Bosson, who estimated that the performance drew roughly 15,000 attendees, praised the presentation for being suitable, heartfelt, and concerned for the well-being of children.
The MCE congratulated Togbe Afede for his involvement in the impending project, and discussed how the idea of a children’s specialty hospital had been on the minds of stakeholders for some time.
Togbe Afede XIV, who was awarded a citation by the DreamChild Foundation, also spoke of the positive impact of the project. “DreamChild Foundation has brought a good thing to us,” he told the thousands that thronged Jubilee Park, adding, “we shall do all we can to ensure it becomes a reality”.
