MAIDEN EVENT COMES OFF AT STATE HOUSE.
Philanthropy among celebrities is not a novel in our archives as an industry. It has been done the world over by some of the most outstanding talents to ever visit this planet. What put the spotlight on some celebrities' benevolence are the target group and the magnanimity and intense passion they attach to the course. In Ghana we have seen it in Ayigbe Edem, Asem, Okyeame Kwame and a host of others.

Becca recently joined the train with a story that could melt the stone gold heart after she witnessed a rather unfortunate scene at a hospital. Her story has been told over and over again and hence she came up with a laudable project with immense support from his management and a few celebrity friends. She therefore launched the Children's Ball project which was aimed at raising funds to facilitate the National Health Insurance for 10000 children after she had put 100 children under the scheme with her own resources.

The maiden event put together to raise funds for the project came off on the 20thof March. The event was well patronized by Corporate Heads, High Government officials and a host of the elite class in society. The event which took place at the Grand State House saw performances from Nigerian ace comedian Basket Mouth, “Serious” performer Amakye Dede and Queen of the night and initiator of the project Becca.

The event saw personalities such as Kwame Sefa Kayi, Alex Segbefia, and Gyedu Blay Ambolley amongst others. In an interview after the night, Becca re-echoed her intense soft spot for children and the story behind the project and promised that it was going to continue and that the event will be annual. Most people at the event were convinced that the course was one worthy on supporting.

Mr. Ishac Diwan, Country Director of the World Bank and Sylvester Mensah, CEO of the National Health Insurance Authority were the patrons of the night and expressed their deepest gratitude. The media were also there in their numbers to give their support. In a related development the songstress has reveled that her next album is ready and will be out soon. “The album is ready, the single with Samini is already out and the whole album will be out soon, very soon.” For most people their concern is the guarantee that the money will go into the proposed project.

“I have nothing to do with the money. The money is under the supervision and signatory power of Deloitte who issues the checks out. The National Health Insurance Authority also has a monitoring system that checks the input and output. I have absolutely no power over the money and transparency is highly guaranteed due to experts who will be monitoring the fund from the World Bank and Deloitte.” Becca added.
