This years ‘Atupa’ Festival is out of bounds for men with potbelly as women from Gomoa Fetteh has declared today.
The ‘Atupa’ Festival is celebrated by the people of Gomoa Fetteh.
The women of Gomoa Fetteh are calling all potbelly men to stay away from the festival because they are heavily hindered by their bellies in doing the popular dance.
“…men with potbellies can hardly twist their waists the way they may want to, compared to their flat-tummy counterparts,” one of the women claimed.
“We have prepared our waists and dance moves for the slim and energetic men because fat men with pot bellies cannot shake us well due to their body size so we want the slim men to come and shake us well during the ‘Atupa’ dance,” another woman added.
Gomoa Fetteh is a fishing and farming community in the Gomoa East District where indigenes celebrate Ahobaakese Festival from the 23rd of August to 2nd September every year with the controversial ‘Atupa’ dance festival being a high point of the celebrations.
