Somewhere in the month of April 2023, Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mark Okraku-Mantey, cut the sod for the construction of an ultra-modern open-air amphitheatre in Kumasi.

According to him at the time, the project which forms part of the New Patriotic Party’s manifesto to build five (5) Amphitheatres across the country, was going to be completed by July 2023.

“This amphitheatre is supposed to start any moment and by the end of July 2023, it should be ready. I repeat we are cutting sod in the next 10 to 15 mins and by July 2023, it should be ready,” he said.

Unfortunately, it is 2024 and the NPP administration is yet to complete the project even though the government is about to finish its second term in office.

Despite the failure to meet ita earlier timeline, the new Tourism and Arts minister designate, Hon. Andrew Egyapa Mercer during a metting with creatives in Kumasi on Wednesday, 8th May 2024 at the Quarshie Idun Hall at Kumasi Cultural Center decided to address the brouhaha surrounding the amphitheatre.

Hon. Andrew Egyapa Mercer told the august gathering as well as the media in Kumasi that the Amphitheatre will be completed before December 2024 by any means necessary.

Hon. Andrew Egyapa Mercer reiterated that the Akufo-Addo led administration can never afford to miss the completion of the Kumasi Amphitheatre when he was quizzed by Ruthy Mummie De-nelson of Nhyira FM fame.
