There was a near stampede at the premises of the Victory Presbyterian Church School at Fafraha near Adenta in Accra as teachers and pupils as well as residents in the Adenta SSNIT Flats and its environs struggled for space to catch a glimpse of popular comedian, Kalybos.
His arrival temporarily brought all activities on the school compound, which was part of the 20th anniversary celebration of the school, to a standstill as almost everyone wanted to be the first to behold the household name, Kalybos.
Everybody suddenly became photographers as they pulled out their mobile phones and tablets to take photos of Kalybos.
It took the managers of the comedian and the event organisers to inject sanity on the event grounds.
Kalybos was invited as a guest judge at a cooking contest involving parents and their children of the school to herald the climax the 20th anniversary celebration which falls on Saturday, October 10.
