GTCO Music Concert: Organizers promise safety of stadium facilities and property

Published

on

Organizers of the upcoming GTCO Music Concert at the Accra Sports Stadium have assured the Ghana public that utmost care and protection will be taken of the facility. They say that measures have been put in place to ensure that the soccer pitch is revived and made ready for football activities immediately after the concert.

A statement from the organizers reads; “We acknowledge the concerns surrounding the use of the stadium for such a huge concert during this period. We wish to assure you that all concerns have been carefully considered and the Accra Sports Stadium will be left in a good shape after the concert.”

The statement noted that given the realities around the observance of all Covid-19 safety protocols, e.g. social distancing; a free entrance event of this magnitude could best be held at the Accra Sports Stadium due to its capacity to hold the expected audience.

The music concert which will feature some of the biggest music stars from Nigeria and Ghana is being put together by Guaranty Trust Holding Company (GTCO), the parent company of Guaranty Trust Bank (Ghana), in partnership with the Ghana National Sports Authority.

Bearing in mind the strong passion the nation has for football, the Bank in conjunction with the National Sports Authority is assuring the general public that there will be no damage to the pitch nor to other properties of the stadium which is set to hold what is touted to be the biggest concert in Ghana.

The concert, which is the first of its kind to be organized by the Guaranty Trust Bank Ghana, is designed “to spotlight the best of African entertainment to a global audience whilst promoting wider acceptance of our character as a vibrant and energetic people.” The event has been recognized by the Ghana Tourism Authority as one of its Beyond the Return initiatives and is expected to attract tourism into Ghana around the Christmas festivities.

According to the organizers, The GTCO Music Concert is in response to calls to support the tourism and creative arts industry in Ghana while offering customers and the general public a chance to experience exciting performances from well-known artistes in Ghana and Nigeria as an end of year appreciation and social responsibility initiative.

The Blackmob rapper currently boasts of the hottest song in Accra, Ghana and that’s a fact – according to Apple Music’s City Chart for Accra at least. Listen/stream ‘Boys Aye Wild’ here: https://gambomusic.ffm.to/gambo-boys-aye-wild

 

It turns out the denizens of Accra could simply not get enough of Gambo’s ‘Boys Aye Wild’ today and rightfully so. The fun song beat the odds and for the first time since its release ranked at #1 on the city’s Top 25 chart list for the day and iTunes. Also earning a spot on one of the streaming platform’s big listings for the region, Top Albums, was the artist’s “New Era” EP which stood at #8 to score Gambo yet another exciting feat.

Gambo outdid the competition and had listeners converging on his song by the bucketload. In regards to his big win today, the ‘Boys Aye Wild’ hitmaker shared: ‘’It was a great feeling to see my song sitting at #1. Seriously. Big ups to Accra for making my day and showing my song that much love. I’m at peace now knowing my brothers are taking the right steps to treat their women right. Ha-ha. Keep the plays coming though and don’t stop’’.

 

Introduced in early 2021 by the Cupertino-based tech giant, City Charts is an updated playlist meant to bring local artists to the forefront of the conversation around music discovery, one it achieves by reflecting the musical tastes of listeners in over 100 cities from around the world on a daily basis.
