The 2016 Ghana National Carnival is an annual event aimed at bringing together all people of Ghana, from the ten (10) regions to the capital Accra on Republic Day to celebrate our culture.
It is often felt by non-Accra citizens that they are left out of National events and this year, The CEO of The Ghana Society and The Ghana Centre for Carnival Arts (the Ghana based sister company), Ms Maria Lovell wants each region to know “we are all the Ghana society, we are one!”
The nomination of Ambassadors has dual aims:
To highlight to the world the regions these talented individuals represent, by birth or parental heritage
To encourage the citizens of their respective regions to feel part of the national promotion of our culture.
The Carnival Ambassadorial role is not a new concept and comes from the nomination of Ms Maria Lovell as the ‘Global Carnival Ambassador of Ghana’ by the Global Carnival Centre in 2014.
The Carnival Ghana Ambassador for the Ashanti Region is younger brother of the Rapdoctor Okyeame Kwame, one part of the successful duo Bradez and rapper Flowking Stone; for Greater Accra Region is one who has represented Tema and Ghana across the world Stay Jay; the Eastern Region is represented by one of Ghana’s founding Hip Life members, the humble one who goes by the name of Obrafour.
There is a rumour that we shall have a Ghana Carnival Concert with these ambassadors.
Come and join us at the Ghana Carnival Parade on Friday 1st July, Official After Party at a prestigious night club in Osu on Friday 1st and the Ghana Carnival Awards and Masquerade Gala on Saturday 2nd July.
