The 2018 Yuletide season saw a number of big events, as well as visitors coming to Ghana.
Events like Decemba2Rememba, Rapperholic Concert, Manifestivities, BHIM Concert, Afrochella, Ghana Rock, Detty Rave, and the Full Circle Festival are some of the notable one. The latter saw a number of Hollywood stars coming to Ghana led by Boris Kodjoe.
The TINA Festival headlined by Fuse ODG will be climaxed today with a musical concert. The New Africa Conference was held yesterday at the AICC and a number of Africans in the Diaspora were at the event.
In the light of all these, Ghanaian actor John Dumelo has lauded event organisers, musicians, etc. for attaining a remarkable feat this past December.
However, he has stated that in order to have such visits in years to come, the country must consider creating new things that will make visitors visit again.
According to the ‘Beautiful Ruins’ actor creating more of such events and building more tourist attractions will go a long way to ensure visitors return to the country.
The entrepreneur also likened Ghana to the likes of Dubai and Miami during the 10 days of festivities.
Read his full reaction below:
“I love what I saw in Ghana this dec. Loads of visitors, events etc. For 10 days Ghana was like Miami or Dubai. Kudos to all the event organizers and musicians for outstanding shows. What we have to do now is to create more events and build more tourists attractions. So you visit Ghana, you go to Kakum, Wli and Cape coast castle. What will make you come back again? Nothing! Like Dubai, they are constantly creating new things for visitors to come back. That’s what Ghana needs to do. We have the potential of being the Dubai of Africa. If we stay Focused, Dubai will be become the Ghana of Middle East. We can surpass Bali, Singapore and Greece as the number one tourist destination. Let’s leave politics out of this debate for once and together let’s make Ghana a better place. God bless our homeland! #Ghana #weareblessed #itstimeforustoshine,” he stated on Friday.
