VIDEO: Diana Asamoah apologises for her 'ignorance' on Homowo

Gospel musician Evangelist Diana Asamoah has apologised for comments she made about the traditional harvest festival Homowo which is celebrated by the Ga people of Ghana.

The songstress had in a Facebook Live video which has since been widely circulated on social media said the strength of God would ensure that very soon the traditional festival would no longer be celebrated in Accra.


The GaDangme Youth Association led by Nii Ayaafio Tetteh I, at a press conference yesterday disclosed that it had reported the singer's comments to the Acting President of the Ga Traditional Council, Nii Adotey Otintor II for action within a week.

However, following backlash on social media, the gospel singer has retracted her comments and apologised for her "ignorance".

She rendered the unqualified apology to all members of the GaDangme community and the entire Ga-Adangbe Traditional Area in a video posted on her Facebook page.

She wrote in the caption: "As a person, we all make mistakes, please forgive your daughter/sister/mother/friend. I withdraw my statement made on Facebook live".

She added that as a Christian she respects the customs of everyone, pleading with the Ga Mantse, traditional rulers, queen mothers and the entire Ga traditional area to forgive her for her unfortunate comments.

Homowo is a festival celebrated by the Ga people of Accra to hoot at hunger in remembrance of a famine their ancestors faced in the past.
