The Vodafone Red lounge, the real tech party at VGMA 2018

Published

on

Since taking over as headline sponsor of the Ghana Music Awards some six years ago, Vodafone has spared no expense to ensure that they add more than a bit more to the experience of their customers at the annual event.

It was Vodafone that started an added ambience of music, food and drinks on the side of the main night of VGMA at the VIP and presidential rooms of the Accra International Conference Centre. For about five years the telco brand entertained people it referred to as valued customers as they enjoyed the awards in those privileged rooms.

This year, however, Vodafone decided to flip the script and they did so by changing the name of the entertainment arena from a room to a lounge, thus Red Lounge was introduced at the 19th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards last Saturday night. It has always been Red Room

While the name may have changed, it was still a Vodafone event and so came with all the trappings of what the brand has been known for on VGMA nights: class, food, drinks, music and a real reddish party atmosphere.

There were couches, settees and there also were the bars that served all manner of drinks. And then the stand that served the grills, mini-sandwiches and wraps, fruits, cake and other such canapés to the very privileged few who got invited by Vodafone to the place reserved for its key consumers.

The new idea of engaging with the consumers in the Red Lounge is the inclusion of technology to depict the new focus of Vodafone as the telecom brand that is leading the way into the digital space.

First was the invitation by an SMS alone and a simple SMS scan at the entrance to allow those invited to enter the lounge! No invitation cards. Next was how drinks were ordered via an app on tablets. No shouting to order drinks and food and definitely no jostling between people.

And then there was the robot engagement inside the Red Lounge. The role of the robot in the lounge was multiple: it showed patrons the way to the washroom and also took a picture and printed for them.

The pre-event party in the Red Lounge started from 7pm-9pm with guests arriving to take a bite or two and have a drink while songstress Yaa Yaa crooned melodious songs with the support of her band and also strummed her guitar strings away into the night.

Starr FM’s DJ Vyrusky was on hand to help Yaa Yaa with good music from his turntables and also sent the lounge into a party mood after the main event during the post-event party. The party went on until the dawn as MC Kabutey Ocansey became the hype-man on the night.

It must be mentioned that space was a bit small to contain the partying crowd, there was some confusion at the entrance to the lounge and it seemed the noise level was too much to have a decent chat with the robot during the after party.

However, the transformation of the left wing of the AICC into a club feel, the addition of technology in the experience and the uniqueness in the setup and engagement need commendation. It was another awesome addition to the VGMA experience by the brand that knows how to do it best!

Donewell Insurance, Happy FM Stock National Blood Bank

Published

on

The 2018 edition of Happy 98.9 FM’s annual blood donation exercise was partnered by Donewell Insurance as part of their 25th Anniversary celebrations and Corporate Social Responsibility.

The blood donation exercise which took place at the Osu Ebenezer Presbyterian Church in Accra on Saturday April 14, saw a host of Donewell Insurance Company Limited and Happy FM staff together with the general public donating blood to stock the National Blood Bank.

Over 100 units of blood was collected to boost the stock of blood at the National Blood Bank.

Speaking at the Blood Donation Exercise, Timothy Karikari, a Director at Global Media Alliance Broadcast Company (GMABC) stated that the issue of shortage of blood at the hospitals is a great concern to Happy FM and hence the partnership with Donewell Insurance Company Limited to beef up the stock at the blood bank.

“We at GMABC, having trust and confidence in the Donewell brand, decided to partner them in this year’s edition. Shortage of blood at our hospitals has been an issue of great concern to this country. Blood is essential for life and the wellbeing of Ghana’s human resource is critical for the success of this country. We believe that by doing this, we are contributing our quota to the health and development of this nation,” Mr. Karikari disclosed.

He said that blood cannot be manufactured and therefore essential for people to donate to help save a life.

Blood cannot be manufactured or created and so by donating blood, you are saving someone’s life, a company’s life and a nation’s future.  Even one unit of blood is important,” he noted.

Jennifer Bebli, Head of Marketing and Business Development at Donewell Insurance Company Limited disclosed that the objective of the blood donation exercise was to give back to society and also to help save lives.

“It has been all over the news that the blood bank has always had a shortage in terms of blood so we decided that as part of our way of giving back and saving lives, we organized this exercise. Donewell Insurance is 25 years and as part of our support to Ghanaians and the community in which we carry out our business, this blood donation exercise is one of the many CSR activities lined up for the year. Since our head office is in Osu, we thought it right to undertake this CSR activity in the community in which we have stayed in these 25years and also to support the blood bank by donating blood,” she noted.

The blood donation exercise lasted for about 8 hours from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.  There were other activities such as free medical screening and health checks for participants by qualified medical professionals.
