Liberia: Cellcom Sponsors Aisha Konneh Connect

Cellcom Communication has extended its tentacles again; this time with the sponsorship of one of Africa's legendary musicians, Madam Aisha Konneh to perform in Monrovia this weekend.

Cellcom's Communication Strategist, Dr. Kemmie Weeks, said in a news conference yesterday that Cellcom is proud to be associated with Aisha Konneh as she performs at the Executive Pavilion this Saturday and Sunday beginning at 7 p.m. Dr. Weeks said the Aisha Konneh Concert has as its Theme "Peace, Reconciliation and Unity" an ideal for which Cellcom stands and will continue to support.

"Cellcom is very proud to be a part of the performance in Liberia of this legendary African musician and as you all know, Cellcom has been bringing into our country stars ranging from internationally acclaimed singers, movie stars and great entertainers. We are proud to be a great sponsor," Dr. Weeks said.

Also speaking through an interpreter at the news conference, Singer Aisha Konneh expressed her gratitude to Cellcom since her arrival in the country, saying, "the first thing Cellcom did for me was to give me communication which did enable me to get in contact with my family in Ivory Coast, Guinea and here in Liberia."

She expressed joy to be in Liberia noting that the mission to Liberia is to promote peace and reconciliation. Madam Konneh said since the Ivory Coast War she has been living in Guinea and she had had a similar concert in that country. She assured Liberians and Cellcom that her show in Monrovia will be great.

Meanwhile the organizer of the concert has assured that following the two days performance at the Executive Pavilion, similar concert will be organized either at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) or the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex in Paynesville.
