Massive crowd turns up for Edemfest in Ho
IT was a thrilling evening at the Ho Jubilee Park when recording artiste and entertainer, Edem and other musicians performed at his annual concert dubbed Edemfest on Saturday, November 18, 2023 in aid of the crusade by non-governmental organisation, Dreamchild to build five paediatric hospitals in the country, including one in the Volta Region.
A very large number of people, including the Agbogbomefia of Asogli, Togbe Afede XIV, Ho Municipal Chief Executive(MCE), Divine Bosson turned up for the concert which travelled late into the night.
The show was in collaboration with Volta Regime Music Group (VRMG), Virtual Hub and Hoodtalk Music Festival.
Edem has already in partnership with agro-company, Fertagro, been to Mepe, Battor, and Sogakope to support the flood victims in the Tongu districts with relief items.
Edem’s publicist, Nana Yaw Wiredu said Saturday’s concert was also in solidarity with the flood victims.
Some of the performers who shared the stage with Edem on the night included Tinny, Epixode, Jupiter, and Kelvyn Boy.
An overwhelmed MCE who estimated about 15,000 patrons at the concert said the show was appropriate and touching with concern for the welfare of children.
“It is only proper for our children to have their own hospitals, to prevent them from catching infections from adults at the same facilities,” said Mr Bosson.
Mr Bosson pledged the assembly’s unflinching support for every project in the interest of children and commended Dreamchild for its noble mission to serve humanity and generations yet unborn.
Togbe Afede XIV paid glowing tribute to the Mr Bossman for his constant touch with the grassroots and urged the people in the municipality to support him to lift Ho to greater development heights.
