Conspicuously missing from the performance list for this year is incarcerated hiplife artiste Kwaw Kesse aka Abodam.
Abodam has over the years endeared himself to patrons of the annual MTN Carols. At one of such events, he appeared with a live fowl strapped in pampers as part of his theatrics and eventually got the auditorium on fire with guests dancing and singing to his version of the ‘Little Drummer Boy’.
The following year, Abodam again turned the auditorium upside down when he appeared on stage with a huge dog dressed in Santa costume.
Abodam is however in prison custody and his case has been adjourned to Monday December 22, three clear days after the carols night.
This year, however, has all time favourite Ghanaian boxer Bukom Banku and his arch rival Ayittey Powers on the bill and the duo will be putting up a Christmas carol on the night.
Friday’s show will also have some of Ghana’s best musicians including Samini, Raquel, Boadiwaa, Snow-B and Torgbe performing Christmas songs with the backing of the Eldunamis Band.
Friday’s event will be the sixth edition and expectations are very high as the event has thrilled its audience beyond expectation for the last five years.
Ivan Quashigah, Chief Executive of Farmhouse, explained that the event is a way of saying thank you to members of the MTN family and giving them a direct feel of the Christmas experience.
