Feast for Pantang Patients
Andrews Zugah, Ghanadot

Accra 21 December, Ghanadot - Hip life musician, Kwaw Kese popularly known as the ‘King of the streets’ on Friday held a pre-Christmas bash dubbed ‘Mad Feast’ for inmates and patients at the Pantang Mental Hospital.

The event organised by Mad Time Entertainment' managers of Kwaw Kese and supported by Zoomlion, Azar Paints, Coca Cola, Pepsi Cola, Odo Rice and others, was to give the patients an end of year party to boost their morale.

The patients who because of mental illness have become societal rejects also received some donations, including an undisclosed cash amount, mattresses, paints, television sets, rice, frytol oil and dustbins.

The musician also adopted the hospital's ‘Ward Three’ to be called ‘Kwaw Kese Ward’. This ward is tagged as the most difficult ward as it houses most of the male mentally challenged patients. Kwaw Kese intends to donate regularly for the upkeep of the patients in the ward.

With the support of another musician from the streets, Wanlov the Kubolor, Kwaw Kese started the ‘Mad Feast’ with an interaction with the media to highlight activities for the day and what inspired the party and the donation.

Kwaw Kese who tags himself as the ‘Man Insane’ (Mad man) said he was touched by the plight of ‘his friends’ the mentally challenged and the way society has rejected them. He said, the ‘Mad Feast’ was his tithe to society and urged others to support the needy.

The medical director of the hospital, Dr Anna Puklo-Dzadey thanked Kwaw Kese for the kind gesture and said this couldn’t have come at a better time.

She was not happy about the fact that the patients have been totally neglected and rejected by the society. She also urged corporate organisations and individuals to come to the aid of the hospital and the patients.

The event got to its peak when Kwaw Kese shared the dancing floor with the patients after which he served them drinks and food and dined with them.

With the support of Wanlov Kubolor, Kwaw Kese treated the patients and the medical staff to a special performance dishing out most of his popular hits.
