Accra Fashion Week 2020 postponed due to Coronavirus outbreak

Published

on

FashionGHANA.com confirms that the Chilly Rainy edition of Accra Fashion Week 2020 set for March 26th-30th, will be canceled. All expected runway activities and participating designers will be postponed until October 1st-5th, 2020 where we can promise an even more explosive show.

The reasons being is due to the Corona Virus epidemic. Although we are fully aware that Ghana at the moment is safe from the Corona Virus, we do not believe now will not be the best time to execute the event that hosts such a large attendance of international guests. Accra Fashion Week today stands as a grand key event in tourism for Ghana, with over a 100 foreign participants including guests from all over the world consistently in attendance.

The event, at times hosting upto 30 countries on the runway in Ghana, something that isn’t been done anywhere else. This year we were scheduled to host 16 foreign countries on the runway. Unfortunately 6 have pulled out due to uncontrollable circumstances in their home country, and a good number of the remaining designers from abroad are in fear to travel.

As Africa’s most popular fashion event, we believe it is our role to take full responsibility in consideration of our participants, guests and the nation as a whole to embrace safety first. It will be of much regret to FashionGHANA.com and a damaging cause to the Accra Fashion Week brand if the event is to play any role in the contribution towards the spread of the Corona Virus, especially in Accra, Ghana. The decision was concluded after much discussions with the remaining participating designers, of which all decided postponing the showcase to October was preferable.

With the exclusion of the major runway shows that includes both the local and foreign designers, FashionGHANA.com will still host a fashion get-together scheduled on the Saturday 28th of March 2020. Details will soon be published on the website schedule page. We are gratefully sorry for any inconvenience cause to any of our audience and followers, especially foreign guests whom have already booked flights and hope the wait will be worth while. And most of all we would like to thank our sponsors Kimimi, Hyundai, Pulse, 2nd Image and Confidence Models for their understanding and patience.

What Shatta Wale and Medikal did after their release from prison

Shatta Wale was on remand  for staging report that he was shot and Medikal joined him later at the Ankaful Prison after he was arrested for brandishing a gun on social media.

The two, on Tuesday morning, were granted bail in their respective cases by an Accra Circuit Court. The dancehall act is to re-appear in court on 9th November for his adjourned case to be heard.

The ‘Omo Ada’ rapper is also to reappear in court on November 9, 2021. The musicians who are friends after going through the bail process to be released from the Ankaful Prison headed over to a beach for a ‘spiritual cleansing’ bath.

Some people hold the belief that after anyone comes out from prison, they must have a sea bath to wash away any bad omen before they are incorporated into society.

Shatta Wale and Medikal accordingly did this at a beach in the company of their close friends and family. Watch the video below of how it went down.
