Thousands of people from across the country have joined the chiefs and people of Gomoa Fetteh to celebrate its Ahobaakese festival.
The festival had an impressive climax with its famous Atopa dance known in local parlance as Akosualontoba. It is part of the rituals to mark the festival to remember how their ancestor Ahor liberated them from slavery.
The dance which requires men to swing their waist behind women has made Gomoa Fetteh, a fishing and farming community in the Gomoa East district of the Central region very popular.
Adom News’ Central Regional correspondent, Kofi Adjei reported that the town is choked with revellers happily participating in the Atopa dance.
He noted that churches in the area closed very early to enable their members celebrate the festival.
Many have criticised the dance as being sexually suggestive but queen mother of Gomoa Fetteh, Nana Abena Owusu said it’s an age-old dance.
