PHOTOS: Accra welcomes 2017 with splendid fireworks at Festival of Lights & Music



It was music, lights, music and more lights at the Junction Mall in Nungua on New Year’s Eve as hundreds of people gathered for a spectacular countdown to 2017! The evening opened with performances from the Patch Bay band and the excitement heightened when the headlining gospel acts, Cwesi Oteng and Obaapa Christie mounted the stage. They performed a medley of their hit songs but right after Obaapa Christie’s opening song, the lights went off and Starr FM DriveTime host, Caleb Giovanni engaged the crowd, teeming with anticipation, to count down to the New Year.
