Cultural Display Through Dance: Naa Gbewaa Zulya Nag'begu Dance Competition 2021

The annual edition of Naa Gbewaa Zulya Nag'begu Dance Competition under the auspicies of Parara Entertainment is set to take place this month on the 19th of September 2021.

The competition centres on the strong twenty (20) communities in the three (3) corridors of the Gbewaa Zulya boundaries, Mamprugu, Dagbon and Nanung.

According to the host of Dinchena Trending on NTV, Mohammed Hafiz, this year's edition of the Naa Gbewaa Zulya Nag'begu Dance Competition comes with several mouthwatering gains.

"What sounds music to the ears is the fact that, the winner gets one bedroom self-contained house. Also, the 1st and 2nd runners will also receive prizes," he said.

Amazingly, fifteen participants have been shortlisted and unveiled for this year's competition. They have all given their shots on how they would want to display their culture through dance.

The rationale behind this Naa Gbewaa Zulya Nag'begu Dance Competition is to portray the beautiful culture and tradition of the Mole-Dagbani people to the public and its youth through dance, costume and appellation. The Mole-Dagbani clan comprises Mamprusi, Dagomba, Nanumba, Mossi, etc.

It is very important to mention that, the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture and the Ministry of Food and Agriculture through the Planting for Food and Jobs (PFJ) program are major sponsors of the competition.

According to Mohammed Hafiz said, unlike other competitions, the judges in this competition do not score marks, they provide constructive criticisms and appraisal to guide the contestants improve their performance.
