The Ga Mashie in the Greater Accra Region on Thursday celebrated the Odadao Ceremony to mark the lifting of the ban on drumming and noise making in Accra.

The one month period is an annual event which is a time of communion with the gods to seek favour for abundance of food and fish for the Homowo Festival.

This year's festival is scheduled for Saturday August 10.
