Ghana Loves Haiti Concert


The Friends of Haiti and Ghana Red Cross has sent out a joint press release about an upcoming concert to raise funds for our brothers and sisters in Haiti.
The campaign consists of a star-studded benefit concert in solidarity with the People of Haiti which will be staged at Alliance Francaise on Saturday the 23rd of January; and an SMS campaign aimed at raising GHC two million. The venue for the concert has been donated by Alliance Francaise, with all the billed artistes also performing free of charge.

Except for putting together a b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l poster, the stars performing are really stars too, Kojo Antwi, Kubolor, Kwabena Kwabena, Black Rasta, Becca, Ambolley and many more. Tickets go for 10 GHC. On top of that Foundation for Contemporary Art, will also have an exhibition in the same space where 30% of the proceeds will go to the Ghana Red Cross fund for Haiti.

To conclude, there seems to be many reasons for attending this event, out of which the noblest is of course to extend a hand to the suffering people in Haiti, but I'll be going to shake my ass just a little bit as well.

Fellow Ghana bloggers Holli , Obed , Edward, MacJordan and Nana Kofi seem to also be thinking about Haiti.

Are you?

Kajsa - which organization will handle and adminiter the funds raised? It's always better to know the monies are going where their meant to go!! And with Haiti there is so much confusion... the poor people in the streets...

Hi Holli, I am presuming Red Cross Int'l will handle the funds as the money will be collected by ‘Ghana Red Cross Society’ who has set up the Ghana Red Cross Haiti Fund, A/C no. 10100102 Standard Chartered Bank, High Street.

You are right that the details are important.

it is a shame that Blakk Rasta was there. He spends most of his radio time abusing 'batty men'. His nasty anti-gay opinions will spoil the event.

Was Black Rasta even there? I can't say I remember (so at least he didnt really make an impression). Still, if this is what he says and does, why do you have to be anonymous? I am not afraid to say I don't agree with anti-gay talk. Neither should you.
