Gospel musician Grace Ashy, and actress Rose Akua Attaa Mensah, alias Kyeiwaa, on Tuesday, led a group showbiz artistes to present an appeal to the Women Caucus in Parliament to support Ghanaians women in soccer.
The appeal comes ahead of the FIFA Women’s World Cup scheduled for Canada next year, 2015.
As the world finished paying attention to the World Cup which took place in Brazil, Canada is gearing up for a massive soccer championship of its own.
In a chat with the caucus, Grace Ashy recalled the role music and cheer-songs had played in elevating the men’s side of Ghanaian soccer, and appealed to the Women Caucus to make the elevation of women soccer, a matter of concern in their deliberations in the House.
She stressed that it was important that the Caucus supported artistes in their efforts to use performances to promote game among women, to reclaim their lost glory in soccer.
Kyeiwaa, displaying some acting antics, and shouting some cheer songs, said the artistes were ready to use their media to promote the game to elevate to the height men soccer had reached.
Hajia Mary Salifu Boforo, Chairperson of the Women’s Caucus, commended the artistes on their initiative, and pledged the support of the caucus.
