Several renowned actors, actresses, and musicians will be attending the Class Media Group’s Celebrity Orphanage Easter Funfair today, Monday April 17.
The event is scheduled to take place at the Efua Sutherland Children’s Park on Easter Monday April 17 and well-meaning Ghanaians and companies have been invited to be present to put a smile on the faces of orphans.
Celebrities including Nana Ama Mc Brown, John Dumelo, Lydia Forson, Vicky Zugah, Joyce Blessing and others will grace the occasion.
Last week while speaking on the Ayekoo Ayekoo show on Accra100.5FM, Nana Ama McBrown said: “If you want to do good, it doesn’t matter if you are a company or an individual. If you are touched, come to the Efua Sutherland Children’s Park and support the programme and if we come to you for aid to support the kids, give the little you have.”
She added that just as children laugh when they watch her movies, she would go all out on the day to entertain them and put a smile on their faces during the Easter festivities.
“The kids have the knowledge that Nana Ama McBrown is a comedian because when they watch my movies or see me, they think of Lil Win or Kweku Manu or Akrobeto. So, basically, I’ll do something to make them laugh and feel happy. I will play with them and let them know I’m the same person they see on TV,” she added.
The Celebrity Orphanage Easter Funfair event is intended to bring children from selected orphanages in the Greater Accra Region together to one location to socialise and interact with selected Ghanaian celebrities to make them feel loved and entertained during the Easter festivities.
There will be a variety of games for the children with performances by the various artistes as well as free medical screening and donations to the various orphanages.
The selected orphanages are the Teshie Orphanage, Potters Village, Chosen Home, Osu Children’s Home, Save Them Young, and Christ Faith.
The list of celebrities doing this with CMG include comedians Funny Face and Kalybos, movie stars Martha Ankomah, Majid Michel, and Yvonne Nelson.
Others are Nana Ama McBrown, Vicky Zugah Amy Newman, John Dumelo, SP Kofi Sarpong, Joyce Blessing, Lydia Forson, and Pascal Amanfo.
The rest are A Plus, Pearl Amoah, Abeiku Santana, Asabea Cropper, Blakk Eye, Moro Awudu, Emefa Apawu, and Mauvie Hayford
