A charity musical concert dubbed “Giants Unplugged” has been outdoored as part of celebrations to mark the upcoming 81st birthday of the former President of the Republic, His Excellency John Agyekum Kufuor.

The charity music concert set to be staged on December 7, 2019 at the Fantasy Dome is being organized by Primeval Media under the auspices of the John Agyekum Kufuor (JAK) Foundation, as they target to raise funds for the construction of an ultra-modern Kufuor Centre for Leadership and Governance at the University of Ghana and also support the Kufuor Scholars Programme (KSP).
Speaking at the launch at his residence in Accra, the Former President said that, these annual events aimed at supporting his foundation forms part of the legacy he wants to leave for the youth of the country and also establish the strong base of bringing up good leaders to spearhead the development of Ghana and Africa as a whole.

“There is hardly anything positive that could be achieved without good leadership. Leadership, I believe is a tenet and foundation without which, you can really achieve round development.

That was why I decided to set up this foundation. I wish I had all the resources to undertake all projects under the foundation but because of the scale of the vision, I found out that I needed support for the foundation,’’ he said.

He bemoaned why Africa despite its vast natural resources doesn’t seem to show the development and progress we all yearn for, a challenge which according to him is due to the “quality of the leadership” that remains a focus his foundation seeks to tackle.

He urged musicians to come support the concert and also spread the good course of the JAK foundation as they contribute to the development in our society and Africa as a whole.

Meanwhile, artistes billed to perform at this year’s concert include Shatta Wale, Kofi Kinaata, Efya, Bisa Kdei, Kwadwo Nkansah “Lilwin” among many others.
