After consultations in the past few hours, 3Media Networks, its key partners, The Multimedia Broadcasting group, EandE Ghana, Fantasy Entertainment, the board and sponsors, have decided not to go ahead with Saturday’s Fan Fest at the Accra Polo Grounds due to the Corona Virus outbreak in Ghana.
As a forward-thinking organization that prioritizes the safety and wellbeing of its patrons, this we believe, is the most humane decision to take.
This decision is also meant to compliment ongoing precautionary efforts by the state and other interested organizations.
The Fan Fest will now be held at the earliest in April.
Further details with regards to the main awards night will be communicated in the next few days.
