Global Citizen chooses tentative date

A representative from the Global Citizen team had an exclusive interview with Daily Guide Radio's Abena Soreno Yankyera.

After the interview, the Ghanaian journalist hinted that the festival would go live in Ghana this November, months later than the debut edition in 2022.

Fans have taken to social media to relish their precious moments with Global Citizen in 2022 as they express their excitement for the festival's top-notch experience.

Speaking to entertainment analyst Yaw Boadu-Ayeboafoh about the return of the Global Citizen Festival in Ghana, he told that,

The key benefit of Global Citizen for Ghana, has always been the Public Relations gain. Accra once again would attract the eyeballs from foreigners, and get a tourism boost. Also, as it’s in a month before the general elections, it could be a much needed platform to preach peace and unity.
