It is not often that we see high profile politicians get involved in creative arts related activities but Fuse ODG is about to alter that status quo, thanks to the first edition of TINA Festival – scheduled for January 4, 2019 in Accra, Ghana.
www.entertainmentgh.com can note that Fuse is bringing together the President of the Republic of Ghana, President Nana Akufo Addo, BBC’s Reggie Yates and international artists, Stefflon Don, Sarkodie among many others for one grand event that would allow patrons across the globe witness an exhibition of culture, music, empowerment and social intervention.
Global Afro beats superstar Fuse ODG conceptualized the TINA Festival and as one of the leading pioneers of the sound, he has been using his music and influence to promote Ghana and Africa in a way that has never been done before. He is famous not only for his music and helping the rise of Afro beats world-wide but also for his tireless commitment to re-educate how Africa is perceived in the world.
Fuse’s efforts to spread this message have allowed him to connect with a variety of artists worldwide which have led to him earn the first Grammy Award by a Ghanaian last year . In re-uniting the Global African Diaspora, the TINA Festival will be part of wider series of events over three days held in Ghana.
The one-day festival will be fully packed with a market fair and activities, and then an evening concert with performances from the likes Fuse ODG Sarkodie, Stefflon Don, Joey B, Lethal Bizzle plus more to to be announced later.
TINA Festival will be to Afro beat what Glastonbury is to Rock music. Beyond the music and the lifestyle, the festival will also promote the continent and Ghana in particular; becoming a catalyst for tourism and investment.
