A practicing Medical Doctor has been billed as the Master of Ceremony (M.C) to anchor Becca's 'Children's Ball' scheduled to take place at the Banquet Hall of the state House in Accra, come Saturday March 20, 2010.

'Well, we decided to take Dr. Quashie to MC the program not just because he is a fine practicing doctor but because he is also one of the best MCs in Ghana and that will be showcased for everybody to see on Saturday. I think he is the best person to do this because the main purpose is to promote health and that is his field.' Kiki said.
Kiki added that he will be supported by a female co-MC who may either be a nurse or a female doctor.
