Musician Gasmilla, popularly known as International Fisherman has launched a cleanup campaign dubbed Gasmilla Homowo Clean Up Beach Jam.
The sole aim of the campaign is to embark on an intensive clean up along the beaches of Accra during this year’s Homowo Festival Celebrations.
The initiative which was launched by the Fisherman Records under the tutelage of the musician is to clean all the beaches across the Ga communities, namely Osu, Labadi, Gamahsi, Teshie and Nungua during the Homowo festivities.
Each clean-up exercise would be crowned with a big street jam at the various communities to entertain the citizens and congratulate them for a good work done. To make this a success, twelve Ghanaian Ga artistes and celebrities together with ten chiefs from these communities have pledged to join hands.
Speaking at the launch, Gasmilla, born Joseph Milla Lamptey said he “wants the beaches to be kept clean forever and also to create a platform for my fans to meet and interact with me and my celebrity friends as we all climb stage to perform”.
His main priority is to impact positively on young people and the community as a whole through his music, social activities and workshops. Thus, the Homowo Clean-Up exercise is within his vision.
Lots of Ghanaian celebrities have pledged to support the exercise. They included personalities such as E.L, Okyeame Kwame, Wanlov, Funny Face, Naa Ashorkor, Bola Ray, Nii Ayi Tagoe, Kwame Bee, Bukom Banku, Andy Dosty and many others.
