Casablanca, Morocco (ADV) – Mrs Catherine Abelema Afeku, Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture said on Tuesday that the country’s nomination was a call to duty, and that, “every creative artist in the country, from the east to the west, from the north to the south must show the world that we were up to the task and even more”.

She said the narrative of Africa must change and that can be done through Africa’s music, by using it as a concrete for peace, to send strong signals to the rest of the world that although Africa had challenges they had overcome most of them.

“Our young people are talented, gifted, intelligent, and are ambassadors of hope for the next generation. Let us show the world that the first country in sub-Sahara Africa to free itself from mental slavery would use music to tell the story of Africa.

“Let Ghana carry the rest of the continent in November to tell the Ghana beyond aid story through music,” she said.
