President John Dramani Mahama was an unexpected guest at the Ebo Whyte Festival of Plays.
The National Theatre saw a number of dignitaries coming over to watch the shows, and they all enjoyed the shows. And each and every one of them enjoyed it fully.
These included H.E Samira Bawumia, the second lady of the country, Her Ladyship Georgina Theodora Woode, the Chief Justice, Madam Catherine Afeku, the Minister-designate for Tourism and Creative Arts.
On the night the crowd roared with laughter as the ‘choirmaster’, a rather feisty and tomboyish market woman led the irreverent chorus against a certain Mayor Johnson.
He was being described as a goat by the folk in the market and to them, he was the worse herbivore of a mayor ever. What even made the rendition of insolence ‘hymnified’ interesting was the way and manner she conducted the song: with her backside.
She conducted the market choir with her behind!
And Ghanaians clapped.
Maybe it was the fact that the cast had in a very beautiful way carried the proverbial Ga thumb and pointed it at the mayor, or maybe Ghanaians were thoroughly enthused about a very wobbly enormous behind conducting chords and beautiful solos.
