Multimedia radio stations hold unity events to energize Kumasi
Life is bouncing back in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi, after the city went dead on the day of Ghana's Supreme Court election petition ruling.
To stimulate the peace, unity and consensus building atmosphere in the Garden City, stations under the stables of the Multimedia Group – Luv Fm and Nhyira Fm – have lined up series of outdoor events this weekend to excite the populace.
Beginning Friday night, Luv Sports, in collaboration with mobile telecom provider, Tigo is mounting a giant screen at the Baba Yara Stadium for soccer enthusiasts to enjoy the 38th Edition of the UEFA Super Cup clash that will see a renewal of the Jose Mourinho – Pep Guardiola rivalry as the two managers seek their first major trophy at their new clubs.
Fans are already ecstatic to watch how Bayern would avenge the painful defeat inflicted on them by Chelsea in the finals of the Champions League two years ago; but the Blues are bent on completing a treble of European titles – Chelsea won the Champions League and Europa Cup in the last two years.
On Saturday, hundreds of personnel from corporate establishments are expected to turn up to partake in the regular Luv Fm Fitness Walk, which has become the major platform for staff of corporate institutions and the sporting populace in Kumasi to exercise, socialize and network for enhanced productivity.
Participants walk several kilometers as they adopt diverse strategies to get to the finish line. The hot kenkey party and the aerobic session which begins and climaxes the fitness walk are perhaps the most exciting aspects of this health package.
The health walk is part of Luv Fm's health package to support the physical and mental well-being of staff from participating institutions.
Nhyira Fm is also collaborating with the Zongo Youth Association for an event dubbed 'Salafest', which will round off the Eid-ul Fitr celebration which marks the end of Ramadan fasting.
It brings affiliate tribes and their heads to showcase their rich culture as a way of promoting harmony and co-operation.
Activities for the event begin with clean-up on Friday, donation to charity with durbar as the climax to be graced by President Mahama and the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
Jim Aglah, Business Development Manager at Multimedia Group Kumasi, says the station is committed to adding value to people's lives, emphasizing that the country needs to celebrate its peace coexistence.
