Queen Mothers Diaspora Sankofa Festival launches in Accra
The Queen Mothers Foundation, in collaboration with Majestic Entertainment Group Africa America Foundation (MEGAAF) and Goodies Music International (GMI), has launched the Queen Mothers Diaspora Sankofa Festival to preserve and promote Ghana’s vibrant culture.
This event, titled ‘Rediscovery of the African Heritage,’ was held with great pomp and pageantry at the La Palm Royal Beach Hotel in Accra over the weekend.
The Queen Mothers Diaspora Sankofa Festival, also known as ‘The African Renaissance,’ represents a diasporan cultural sensitization project crafted to revive and safeguard the rich cultural identity of both Ghanaians and Africans living in the diaspora.
The launch event serves as a prelude to the main festival, which is slated to take place in prominent locations such as the United States of America, Canada, the United Kingdom, and various European countries.
Speaking with the media, Isaac Abeiku Aidoo, widely recognized as Goodies and serving as the CEO of Goodies Music International (GMI), emphasized the paramount importance of preserving and promoting Ghana’s vibrant culture.
He stated, “We have a culture, and when we look at our brothers and sisters in the diaspora, it appears they have forgotten their roots. We aim to bring our culture to them so they can truly appreciate our heritage. This is about rediscovering ourselves.”
The Queen Mothers Diaspora Sankofa Festival represents an extraordinary effort to bridge cultural connections and ensure the enduring vitality of African heritage both within Ghana and among the global African diaspora.
