Noble Nketia Welcomed With Respect And Regard In France.

The Ghanaian gospel artist Noble Nketiah arrived in France on a GHACIF special invitation on the 2/11/2007.

The young and handsome Ghanaian gospel musical star was officially welcomed in France at a ceremony due of his rank. He was flanked by his wife Eunice who is also a gospel singer.

The ceremony came off last Sunday (4/11/2007) at La Courneuve, in the auditorium of The Assemblies of God Church. This maiden ceremony was steered by Pastors Ntim and Wiredu, and their congregation. GHACIF President, Hon. Osei-Mensah Michael accompanied by GHACIF special assistant Mr. Wallace Wassilu were present at the ceremony. Also present were several fans of the musician and anonymous Ghanaians from different points of Paris.

Addressing the audience, Noble told Ghanaians in the diaspora not to be only focused on material riches. He said what counts at all times is Health,Life and the protection of God. He said we should therefore pray constantly for healthy life and be permanently thankful to our God. He boiled up the crowd with several touchy songs of his.

Whilst Pastor Ntim enumerated his merits, Hon. Osei Mensah welcomed the star on behalf of the four poles of GHACIF the Ghanaian Community In France Association.

Noble won the Ghana best Gospel Musical award in 2006. This year he was selected as a GHACIF Ambassador. He will therefore receive his certificate of function before he leaves Europe.

Several children, youth and elders of our community posed with our star at the ceremony. Full of admiration for the star, a young franco-ghan?enne lady, confessed that the songs Noble Nketiah sang at his welcome ceremony were very electrifying. Beautiful Paulette could not resist the shock. She said that the Ghanaian youth in France needs to meet Ghanaian artists of that calibre so as to link to their roots and also enjoy the talents of excelling Ghanaians.
