Kwan Pa performs at WUSC annual forum with spectacular performance

The annual World University Service of Canada (WUSC) forum in Ghana pulsated with empowerment and vibrant music on Tuesday, February 13.

Dynamic Ghanaian band Kwan Pa electrified the audience at Fiesta Royale Hotel, their infectious energy perfectly complementing the forum’s focus on the “Invest In Her” project.

This impactful initiative, spearheaded by WUSC and funded by Global Affairs Canada (GAC), aims to transform the lives of urban, marginalized young women in Ghana by equipping them with specialized training in male-dominated Technical and Vocational Educational Training (TVET) trades.

With a five-year goal of empowering 5,000 women across Kumasi, Sekondi-Takoradi, and Accra, “Invest In Her” is making a tangible difference.

The forum’s highlight was undoubtedly Kwan Pa’s electrifying performance. Led by the charismatic Hassan, the band’s rich blend of Ghanaian sounds, featuring the distinct palm wine music they’ve championed for the past five years, had the audience moving and grooving.

Kwabena Safo, Nanay Oweni, and Kwame Agbahoasi Minamo wove their magic on local instruments like the twin bell, Kobe, and rattle, creating an unforgettable soundscape.

Their back-to-back hits not only entertained but also resonated with the forum’s message. As Kathleen Flyenn Dapaah, Director Head of Cooperation at the High Commission of Canada to Ghana, emphasized, investing in women’s economic empowerment is crucial for sustainable development.

Kwan Pa’s music, infused with Ghanaian cultural heritage and contemporary energy, embodied this message beautifully.

The WUSC forum, with Kwan Pa’s electrifying performance as its centrepiece, became more than just an event; it was a celebration of Ghanaian women’s potential and the power of music to inspire and unite.
