Ghana’s wordsmith Kofi Acquah roll out plans for scrabble bash

Ghana’s scrabble star,  Kofi Acquah is set to commemorate his 40th birthday celebration with a scrabble competition in Accra on Saturday, May 25.

Top 37 jammers including World No. 8 Charles Tachie-Mensah, Stanley Ubiedi and a host of others will engage one another in the mind game contest.

2023 African Games women’s bronze medallist Betty Kyeremateng will also be in the mix at the one-day tournament.

A total of nine rounds of games will be played at the Washi Gardens, Accra where winners will emerge in honour of Acquah.

Saturday’s event is generating a buzz across Ghana as a result of the country’s successful hosting of the 13th African Games which featured scrabble as a demonstration sport.

Acquah who is based in the United States of America, won the first edition of The Next King of Ghana national championship in 2021 and will be using his 40th birthday celebration to grow the popularity of the sport which is now in its ascendancy in the country.

Head of Communication Committee at Scrabble Association of Ghana’s (SCAG), Williams Arhin while speaking on the plans for the fiesta said the excitement is attracting more enthusiasts based on the fact that it is coming up two months after the country played host to the rest of Africa in March.

Top five finishers will win cash prizes while the winner will also get a trophy and every participant will be presented with souvenirs.
