MTN Ghana has launched this year’s AshantiFest in Kumasi, the capital of the Ashanti Region.

The month-long celebration is the 11th since its inception.

MTN Ghana says it is a month of celebrating their loyal and dedicated customers 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.

This year, MTN has announced exciting activities including football gala competitions among some well-known soccer loving communities in the Ashanti regional capital.

General Manager of Northern Business District-MTN Ghana, Nii Adotey Mingle inaugurating the festival said the final of the football gala will be streamed live on MTN’s official handles.

He also declared 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 Otumfuo Osei Tutu II,” he continued.

“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.” Mr. Mingle added

“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 in our recovery.

“It is because of our bold resilience as a people that we are here to officially launch the 2021 edition of AshantiFest,” he said.
