For many who have long-awaited for the 2016 edition of the KUMAWOOD AKOBEN FILM FESTIVAL AND AWARDS (KAFF), I’m sorry, it wouldn’t happen as the management of Kumawood Multimedia, the proud owners and organizers of the awards show have announced a postponement in this year’s awards show.
In a press release submitted to www.nydjlive.com, organizers list a number of circumstances leading to the postponement.
Among the reasons is the demise of the Queen mother of the Ashanti Kingdom leading to the ban on noise making until further notice.
Read the press release from below.
The management of Kumawood Multimedia the proud owners and organizers of the annual KUMAWOOD AKOBEN FILM FESTIVAL AND AWARDS (KAFF), an awards ceremony which has successfully rewarded meritorious stakeholders of the movie industry in Ghana for the past five consecutive years, regretfully announce the postponement of the 2016 edition
KAFF Awards which has been held during the Christmas yuletide has been postponed in consultation with sponsors and jury due to the following reasons:
The postponement was necessary due to the demise of the Queen Mother of the Ashanti Kingdom and the observation of the cultural law, which bans loud music or any form of merriment which unfortunately coincides with the original date of the event.
Again as the country goes to polls on December 7th, attention is geared towards a successful and peaceful election and the tendency of a possible runoff which can extend into the original date of the event will marred the beauty of the event.
The new date for the anticipated KAFF Awards will be 7th April 2017.
