Award-winning fashion influencer and walking artist Samuel Glenn Semakor popularly known as Glenn Samm, organizer and headliner of the 2022 ‘Tsadidi Street Art Festival’ which took place at the Fort Prinzenstein in Keta, the Volta Region of Ghana on the 5th of November thanked participants and pledged to pull a stunning show next year.
The Tsadidi Street Art Festival was curated as part of events to provide recreational activities to celebrants of the Hogbetsotso festival of the Anlos. The Festival is a day that reminisces Ewe history based on mystical powers, and heroic acts by men of courage and foresight that liberated the Ewe-Dogbo people from the rule of the tyrant king Torgbui Agorkorli of Nortsie in Togo.
However, the launch and maiden edition of the 2022 Tsadidi Street Art Festival witnessed activities such as art processions, fashion/art exhibitions, spoken word performances, and open mic sessions. Not forgetting the mural graffiti around the Keta Fort Prinzentein.
In an interview with Glenn Samm who birthed the Tsadidi Street Art Festival, he says the dynamics of the 2022 and the following year’s festivals will continue to unfold a lot of creativity on Street Art for people who come for the Hogbetsotso festival to have more fun and enjoy an educative and well-structured show.
Next “year’s Tsadidi Street Art Festival will provide more activities for patrons, a variety of entertainment with a focus on Street Arts. After observing the traditional rites, we will still have a lot to engage celebrants, 2023 has a lot on the table. Plans are already being looked at by the team and myself and I am confident it will be massive. This is to ensure an impactful festival and also strengthen the growth and influence of African festivals worldwide,” the 2022 Pulse Influencer Award winner said.
