Remember the proposed 20 Million Ghana Cedis budget for the celebration of Ghana’s 60th anniversary?… It has generated a buzz.
Well! Tales on the street has it that, Canadian American multiple awards top billing rapper Drake, singers Bruno Mars & The Weeknd will be touching down on the soils of the Republic of Ghana for the first time in their lives to shut down a pre-independence day concert on March 5, 2017 in the capital Accra as the country sets to clock 60 on 6th March.
This rumor was spotted out after the cost for the celebration was revealed by the head of state, mentioning GHC 20Million as the budget (READ IT HERE)… And I personally don’t think these three artistes can be included in the said 20 Million Ghana cedis as revealed; for just one of out the three mentioned act is worth more than Ghana’s independence budget.
Nanneonline Ghana at this point can’t confirm how spot-on this news concerning the mentioned international music acts heading to Ghana is. And I can tell Ghanaians can’t wait if it happens to be what it is.
The source of this anecdote stated “Accra Sports Stadium” is the targeted setting for the said Pre-Independence concert of Ghana’s 60th Anniversary. Organizers of this pre-independence concert weren’t revealed.
Let’s hope this is not a usual Rumor! I madly want to see Brumo Mars in particular.
