Syphics Studios through a consortium of event companies, and a partnership with TheAfricanDream.net as media sponsor successfully concluded another exciting edition of their annual AfroXmas Carnival last year in Ghana’s favourite port city of Tema, not far from the capital city of Accra.
The carnival was an incredible celebration of community, culture, fun, and entertainment. It featured a wide range of activities, including parade, masquerade competitions, musical and performances that was attended by thousands of people from all walks of life.
The AfroXmas Carnival which held December 25-26 last year “was a resounding success, and we are proud to say that it has cemented its place as the biggest free event in the capital,” revealed Benjamin Swanzy Kwesi, the CEO of SyPhics in an interview with TheAfricanDream.net last month.
Showcasing a unique culture
AfroXmas, according to the organisers is a display of all that Ghana has to offer culturally, as well as a venue for people to join in pride for their African ancestry. It stands for celebrating Christmas the African way, and having the locals enjoy the festivities with afro culture in colourful styles.
AfroXmas is already the biggest masquerade celebration in Tema, and the festival’s founders always noted that they are giving back to the society by collaborating with local partners to celebrate and promote Ghana’s rich culture.
“Not only was the recent carnival an exciting and enjoyable experience for everyone who attended, but it also played a significant role in promoting the city of Tema. The event attracted visitors from far and wide, providing a boost to local businesses and showcasing the city’s unique culture and history and tourism potential,” said the CEO.
Event organizers expressed gratitude to the general public for making the AfroXmas Carnival an enjoyable and memorable experience free of any negativity.
“Thanks to everyone’s cooperation and responsible behavior, the event was accident-free, and everyone had a great time. We hope that everyone who attended AfroXmas took away plenty of happy memories and that they will continue to support us in the future events as we are already gearing up for 2023,” the organizers said.
In his interview with TheAfricanDream.net Benjamin Swanzy Kwesi extended a heartfelt appreciation to all sponsors and supporters without whom AfroXmas Carnival would not have been possible. “Their contributions, both financial, logistically and in-kind, were instrumental in making the event a resounding success,” he said.
He further disclosed that Syphics Studios presented a plaque of appreciation to the Tema Traditional Council for their support. “The overlords of Tema and the traditional leaders are fully in support of the afroXmas and it has come to stay,” said Nii Bortey Kofi Frankwa II, the Oyibi Gonten Mantse and Regent of the Nungua Mankralo stool, in Accra Ghana in a statement last year.
AfroXmas also presented a plaque to Tema Metropolitan Chief Executive Hon. Yohane Amarh Ashitey, Member of Parliament for Tema Central Constituency Yves Nii Noi Hanson-Nortey, and Former Tema Metropolitan Chief Executive Felix Mensah Nii Anang-La, and BlowChem Industries Limited.
The awards represented a token of gratitude for the continued support recieved from these individuals and many others who have over ther years and aince the festivals inception in 2015, hoping for continued support of future events.
“We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful team members and volunteers, who worked tirelessly to make sure the last edition of AfroXmas Carnival was a success.

We are truly grateful for their efforts, and we hope to work with them again in the future,” said Ahmed Abdul-Rasheed, a Syphics management official.
