Edge Of The World Productions (EOWTP), organizers of JaGhafest (Jamaica Ghana Festival) have rolled out a series of performers to grace the historic occasion with Veteran Jamaican Reggae Singer and Grammy Nominee, Freddie McGregor confirmed as headline act.
Freddie McGregor, well-traveled Reggae Singer was on Sunday, January 6 interviewed about JaGhafest on Hitz 103.9fm by the award-winning Selector, King Lagazee on “Yaad Settingz”.
He was super excited about the entire festival and is very optimistic it would be an opportunity to cement and build strong bonds not only between Ghanaians and Jamaicans but a gateway to unifying African and Caribbean descents.
The maiden edition of the festival will see a long list of performers from Ghana and Jamaica thrill patrons on March 9 and March 10, 2019.
So far, Jamaican acts including Duane Stephenson,Charly Black,Natel,Mr Vegas, Alaine and Cecile have been confirmed to perform at the 2-day music festival as well.
Internationally renowned Selectors; Coppershot and ZJ Sparks have also been announced as official jocks for the music festival.
Endorsement videos from many of the listed Jamaican Performers have hit social media and Ghanaian music fans can’t wait to see them arrive for the festival.
The JaGhafest will gather Ghanaians, Jamaicans, other Caribbeans and members of the Diaspora, who will converge at the Independence Square in Ghana’s capital city, Accra on the first day of the concert.
On March 10, same set of Jamaican performers will head to Cape Coast for a similar showdown.
A good list of seasoned Ghanaian Musicians are also expected to play with the Jamaican acts for the festival.
Meanwhile, Ghanaian movie stars, James Gardiner and Kalybos have been announced by the EOWTP as Ambassadors for the event.
However, they are tightlipped about the Ghanaian Musicians who have made it to the list of performers, keeping the information as a surprise — they would want to hold that for now as a surprise.
JaGhafest promises to be a yearly event to boost tourism and repatriation, thus strengthening the strong bond between Jamaica and Ghana, the leading faces of the project.
JaGhafest will be an annual event in Ghana henceforth. The festival will feature a ‘Jamaica House – a display of Jamaica Arts.
The music festival will be held, with support from the Government of Ghana; Ghana Tourist Authority; Ministry of Tourism, Arts & Creative Culture (Ghana); Government of Jamaica, Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport (Jamaica); Jamaica Tourist Board and a list of others.
