Zylofon Cash has given a cash amount of $10,000 to sponsor the Drama and Debating Club of Akwamuman Senior High School (SHS), to represent Ghana at the South African National Arts Festival to be held in Grahams Town, South Africa this month.
The cash amount, received jointly by the Headmaster, Stephen Aglah and Chief of Akwamu Adumasa, Nana Ansah Kwao IV, would go a long way in serving as credits for the financial deficits faced by the school ahead of the trip.
The prestigious competition in South Africa starts from Thursday June 2018, to Sunday July 8th 2018 and Akwamuman SHS is the only school participating from West Africa; an enviable slot the school’s Drama Club earned after it emerged as overall winners at the Broadway Drama Festival held in November 2017.
With just a few days left to the trip, the school had not been able to raise the full amount of $68,000 to cater for the travelling cost of a team of twenty five cast and crew.
Zylofon Cash, received an official request of sponsorship from the Akwamuhene Odeneho Kwafo Akoto III, the Ministry of Education and the school’s head, Stephen Aglah and the company, in response to the request, gave out a cash amount of $10,000 to support the trip.
“Zylofon Cash is committed to supporting the development of creative talents and we found the request from Akwamuman SHS to be in line with our vision of supporting creative talents and initiatives.
“Drama and theater is a sure way of achieving a cultural renaissance and cultural imposition and we are not only interested in supporting the Akwamuman SHS Drama Club with our finances but also to help them monetize their creativity and make money from it, while they continue to use theater to market Ghana and tell the African story”, Mr, Gabriel Kwabla Kwamigah, National Coordinator for Zylofon Cash noted at a brief ceremony held to hand over the money
Speaking on behalf of Akwamuhene Odeneho Kwafo Akoto III, the Chief of Akwamu Adumasa, Nana Ansah Kwao IV, lauded Zylofon Cash for the gesture and explained the need for ‘corporate Ghana’ to invest more in the support of educational projects and institutions.
Nana Ansah Kwao IV said it was time Ghanaians and Africans for that matter are encouraged and supported to tell the African story.
“It is sad that we do not have a movie on Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. There are six movies on 9/11 and still counting but as a people, we are yet to piece together one story to tell posterit there was once a legend and freedom fighter by the name Kwame Nkrumah”, Nana Ansah Kwao IV noted.
