Mjthecomedian, embodying his charismatic persona, took to the truck’s microphone, entertaining the crowd with his signature humor. He also took the opportunity to advocate for peaceful elections in December, a message that was met with laughter and applause.

The procession wound its way through some of Accra’s most iconic landmarks, making a notable pause at Independence Square. The revelry continued as the parade moved down Oxford Street, eventually reaching the La Girls School Park, where a stage had been set up for the day’s main events.
