The trending and arguably the most publicized event to ever take place in the Garden City; “Tigo Music Unplugged Concert” takes place tonight, November 28, 2015 at the Kumasi Sports Stadium.
The show which is in its year is put together by Ghana’s digital lifestyle brand, Tigo Ghana to entertain and excite Tigo customers in Kumasi and Ghanaians in general.
Though it’s the second edition; it has already become a show that, patrons looks up to before the actual day. This is mainly because of two reasons; unlike other shows of this magnitude which almost takes place in Accra, “Tigo Music Unplugged Concert” promises not to make it just an Accra event.
The second reason is because; the show parades the best of musicians drawn from both Ghana and Nigeria to entertain patrons.
Speaking at the press conference to wrap up events for the big concert in Kumasi, Head of Marketing at Tigo Ghana, Jesse Adjapong said:
“A couple of months ago, we had made a commitment that we are going to bring something big to Ashanti Region and about seven months before that time, we had launched Tigo Music Unplugged for the first time at the Accra Sports Stadium.”
“It was a great experience for our customers in Accra and it was a great experience for Tigo as a brand. Now, 12 months down the line, we have had a strong believe that, as a mass brand with customers across the country, it probably doesn’t make sense to limit the brand experience to Greater Accra region alone,” he added.
“So we are arguably the first brand to lift its biggest platform or property and send it across the country. So year two of Tigo Music Unplugged in Ashanti Region, we are here to have fun, to celebrate the Tigo brand, one with our customers, two with the populace and three to ensure that we send this amazing experience across the country. Next year, you might never know where the train is going next.”
