Christmas is fast approaching and communications company, MTN, has lined up another Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols to usher the general public into the Christmas mood.
This year’s is scheduled for 7.00pm tomorrow, Friday, December 18 and will be streamed live on Facebook and Youtube.
The festival has been a well-attended affair since inception about 10 years ago but the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent restrictions have curtailed performances in front of live audiences, thus the virtual presentation this year.
As usual, the MTN Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols brings together some of the best and most entertaining acts on the Ghanaian scene and this year will be no different.
The current Artiste of the Year, Kuami Eugene, will be on stage to show what has made him a household name these days. He is one of the guys riding high on the scene now and everyone would look out for how well he can entertain them.
Also billed to perform are MTN Hit-Maker protégés such as Kurl Songx, Lasmid, Freda Rhymz and Adepa. The El Dunamis Choir as well as the MTN ViVa Voices, a collection of singers from MTN, will also put viewers into the Christmas mood with their smooth vocal performances.
“We are responding to the challenge of the global pandemic and that’s why we want people to stay home, keep safe and enjoy a night of great entertainment amidst uplifting Biblical readings by personalities from different backgrounds,” said an official from MTN’s Events Department.
Attendees at previous MTN Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols events cannot ever forget there’s always a surprise component to the programme and some goodies flow from the organisers. One doesn’t know what’s in store at this special virtual edition but the assurance is that it would be a thrilling affair worth everyone’s time.
Acts that have appeared at previous MTN Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols include Kwaw Kese, Samini, Okyeame Kwame, MzVee , Nacee, Cecilia Marfo, Daughters of Glorious Jesus, Patapaa and Feli Nuna.
