Telcos giant, MTN Ghana, has launched its annual regional celebration in the Ashanti Region, known as AshantiFest, for the year 2021, in Kumasi.
The month-long celebration is the 11th since its inception and will be celebrated with the general public, mainly loyal and dedicated customers of MTN, in the Region.
The annual celebration brings loads of excitement to customers and their loved ones in the region as the telecoms company organizes lots of fun-filled programs.
As part of this year’s event, it was announced that there will be exciting activities including football gala competitions among some well-known soccer-loving communities in the Ashanti Regional capital, Kumasi.
The General Manager of Northern Business District-MTN Ghana, Nii Adotey Mingle launching the festival said the final of the football gala will be streamed live on MTN’s official handles.
He also announced that there will be a data offer of 500MB for every data purchased in the Ashanti region during this festive period.
“In addition to these we will hold a Media Editors forum, community forum, commemoration of International Literacy Day and a courtesy call on Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II,” he continued.
Mr. Mingle added that “our top 250 customers have already received the latest phones on the market. All MTN customers benefited from the Good day Ghana promo and our mega promo which will reward 25 customers with 25 brand new Hyundai Sonata cars is still ongoing.”
“Ashanti fest is a great opportunity for MTN to appreciate our numerous and loyal customers in the region,” he said, adding that it also affords them the opportunity to showcase the rich culture of the region.
As the company is still celebrating its 25th anniversary in Ghana, Mr. Mingle indicated that if not for the COVID-19 pandemic the celebration would have been more glamorous.
“As you are aware, the pandemic has drastically changed our lives and the way we do things. As a people, we have been able to wage a relentless and fruitful war against the pandemic and today we are seeing more than glimmers of hope,” according to Mr. Mingle.
