Emdee David, John Njamah, Tony Akposheri and notable entertainment stakeholders are leading a group of Nigerian Entertainers on a Road Unity tour to Ghana. This is a way of fostering a stronger relationship and unity among African countries, starting from the West African sub-region.
Also joining the Tour is Victor Essiet of The Mandators, a Reggae living legend who has been in the United States all this while and is here in Nigeria. Victor Essiet believes Africa needs LOVE, which will bring about the UNITY we so much desire.
We are using a platform of Entertainment to preach Unity and Love because of its natural bonding power which in turn affects brotherly love among youths and adults. We chose Ghana as a starting point because Ghana and Nigeria already has a strong bond in Nollywood, Fashion and the music industries.
This Road Tour to Ghana is coming up from the 3rd to 7th of October 2014 as a way of
· Sensitizing the African countries about our vision, mission and the need for stronger uniting activities together.
· Exploring recreational areas of Ghana, with few stops at Benin and Togo. We will be visiting Rita Marley’s studio, the Beach, and Slave Center.
· Socializing with our Ghana fellow Actors/Actresses, models and musicians.
