Easter celebration in the Akwamu area of the Eastern Region was this year taken to another level as Accra-based local radio station Onua FM joined hundreds of revelers in and around the area for a four-day jam-packed event.
In a year that the overhyped Kwahu Easter festival saw a dip in patronage, the Onua FM Gyakiti Easter Festival attracted relatively high patronage, at least considering the fact that the event is still in its infant stage; two years old.
For four days, Gyakiti was on lockdown with happy people, good music, musical and dance performances, beach party and sumptuous local foods.
Not even the remoteness of Gyakiti in the Asuogyaman District, which is about 40 minutes drive from Akosombo, as well as the dusty nature of the road to the town could deter holidaymakers from joining the Onua FM Easter train to the place.
Upbeat about the exciting experience Gyakiti had to offer following the involvement of Onua FM and the successes of last year’s event, hundreds of revelers made the town the nerve-centre of Easter celebrations from Easter Friday to Easter Monday.
The four-day event kick-started with the Onua FM Gyakiti Easter train from Accra on Friday, March 30 dishing out great music and goodies to enthusiastic crowds at Somanya, Kpong, Atimpoku, Akosombo and Adumasa.
