Countdown Africa Leads Accra As The First African City To Be Represented In The Iconic Worldview Centre Stage New Year Celebrations
London’s Big Ben, New York’s Time Square, Sydney’s Opera House and now Accra’s Osu Castle were part of the iconic worldview centre stage as we ushered in another decade at the start of 2020.
The Ghanaian capital was the first African city to be included in the official countdown of a New Year and represented Africa for the first time in the celebrations.
Multiple award winning artist Sarkodie was the star performer on the night and entertained more than 400 guests in attendance including business executives, government officials and celebrities. We are also expecting a huge demand from visitors in the UK, Europe, USA and neighbouring African countries.
Ghana’s popularity as the heartbeat of Africa continues to grow as celebrities including Idris Elba, Boris Kodjoe, Naomi Campbell and Liam Payne flocked to party in the capital.
This year Google also opened its first Africa Artificial Intelligence lab in Ghana strengthening the future of technology for the country.
Akua Kufuor, Creator of Countdown Africa said, “this important event is about cementing our place and taking Africa to the world stage of celebrations. We are excited to be launching our brand in Ghana. Osu Castle, a great Ghanaian historical landmark, which has also been a place of blood, sweat and tears.”
She continued, “however, we want to commemorate our history by completing the list of continents whilst celebrating the future of Ghana. This firework display will be a fantastic opportunity to showcase our resilience and presence to the world as we enter the new decade.”
Countdown Africa also supports one of President Nana Akufo-Addo’s key objectives to promote tourism in Ghana to lead to more business and investment opportunities. President Nana Akufo-Addo said, “we are focused on ensuring that our brothers and sisters have a safe, pleasant and wonderful journey home.”
