Leading telecommunication company, MTN Ghana stormed James Town on Friday, August 18, to celebrate the Homowo Festival with the Ga people.

As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities, MTN presented a cheque of GHS10,000 to support the Ngleshie Alata Traditional Council in James Town to celebrate the festival.

In addition, the company during an engagement with the Traditional Leaders presented to them MTN airtime worth GHS1,000 and a hamper full of celebratory drinks.

As part of its longstanding relationship with the Ngleshie Alata Traditional Council, MTN has set up customer experience centres in James Town to address the needs of clients from today to Sunday, August 20.


While providing a distinct customer experience during the Homowo Festival celebration all weekend, customers will be assisted to reconnect their SIM with the Ghana Card, they will be educated on Mobile Money fraud and encouraged to use ‘My MTN App’, ‘MTN MoMo App, and the ‘Ayoba’ App.

Speaking to the media on the rationale behind the support to the Ngleshie Alata Traditional Council, the Manager of the Southeast Business District of MTN Ghana, Kwasi Osei Hyeaman, Kwasi Osei Hyeaman explained that it goes in line with the company’s core values which includes connecting families, friends, and business through the services it provides to foster development.

“The main reason why we partner with Homowo Festival is that we believe in people and we know without people MTN won’t exist. So anything that relates to people we want to be part of it and that is why you see us here,” Kwasi Osei Hyeaman added.


He added that as a business, MTN Ghana will continue to partner with Homowo Festival to promote culture.

MoMo Fraud:
In his interview with the media, Kwasi Osei Hyeaman advised customers to guard their Mobile Money (MoMo) pin at all times by ensuring that it is not given to anybody.

He stressed that while MTN Ghana is committed to fighting MoMo fraud, it needs customers to help to make the fight successful.

“We advise that customers should own their SIM. If I say own your SIM it means take full control over your SIM and don’t share your PIN Code with anybody. Not even with MTN staff. Don’t entertain anyone when it comes to your PIN Code,” Kwasi Osei Hyeaman emphasised.

Ngleshie Alata Traditional Council:
Speaking on behalf of the Ngleshie Alata Traditional Council, Paramount Stool Secretary, Nii Akwei Bonsu III expressed appreciation to MTN Ghana for the support towards the celebration of the Homowo Festival this year and in the past as well.


He called for continuous collaboration and prayed for the business of MTN to continue to boom.

“We say a big thank you to MTN for the annual donation to support the Ga Homowo festival. We’ve had a partnership with them over the years and we appreciate them whenever they come. We wish them Godspeed in whatever they do. We expect that anytime we call on them they will come to our aid to celebrate our festival and other events with us,” Nii Akwei Bonsu III said.

He further urged the youth and people of Ga Mashie to celebrate this year’s Homowo Festival in modesty.

Similar to the support given to the Ngleshie Alata Traditional Council today, MTN Ghana on Wednesday, August 16, supported the La Traditional Council with a cash amount of GHS10,000, credit worth GHS1,000, and a hamper of drinks for the celebration of the Homowo Festival.
