Tigo Ghana thrills subscribers with Tigo Festival Train

BY Nana Appiah Acquaye, Accra, Ghana

Tigo Ghana continues to thrill its subscribers with fun events. This year Tigo joined the Chief and people of Amasaman, a suburb of Accra, to celebrate this year’s Homowo festival - a traditional festivity meant to hoot at hunger.

The Tigo festival train, which was entering the area for the very first time, provided the townsfolk an exciting cocktail of fanfare and music from celebrated and crowd-pulling musicians including, C-Zar, Adane Best, Grace Ashy, 5 five and the incomparable Gasmilla.

Stating Tigo’s motivation for joining the people of Amasaman to celebrate this year’s festival, the Head of Marketing at Tigo Ghana, Tenu Awoonor, reiterated that Tigo is committed to sharing in the passion of its subscribers and being part of activities through which they express themselves, and noted how Tigo has always been looking at innovative ways to enrich the lives of its customers and the citizenry at large, hence the Tigo Festival Train.

The Festival Train also presented an opportunity for the people to request for songs for their family and loved ones. The Chief of the area, Nii Amasa Osieku, and his elders graced the occasion to deliver their solidarity messages to the people and the country. 

The hugely popular Tigo Festival train is another channel used by the premier telecommunications services provider to enrich festivals that are celebrated by various people across Ghana.

Ghanaian Pop star C-Zar was simply fantastic and had the large crowd of revelers singing and dancing well into the night. Adane Best took his turn next and did not disappoint, as he wowed fans with his melodious tunes. However, the night belonged to the ‘King of Azonto’, Gasmilla, who sent the crowd into a wild frenzy with his performance.
