Thrills at Papaye Media fun games


Ghana’s leading fast food provider, Papaye, on Saturday revived its Papaye Media fun games with a series of fun activities with media personnel at its plush Papaye Recreational Village at Konkonuru, a suburb of Aburi in the Eastern Region.

The games, which went on a 10-year break brought together media persons from media houses across the country including the New Times Corporation, publishers of the Ghanaian Times and Spectator, Graphic Communications Group Limited, Ghana News Agency (GNA), Metro TV, Vision1, Modern Ghana, Accra FM, Light TV among others.


The journalists competed against a selected team from Papaye in various indoor and outdoor games such as aerobics, soccer, volleyball, draughts, ludo, oware, tug-of-war, scrabble, sack race and lime and spoon.


The games drew a lot of attention and excitement from the participants, especially the tug-of-war competition that saw the media team captained by Ghanaian Times’ sports reporter, Raymond Ackumey pull a hapless Papaye team to victory.

The media also triumphed in ludo, sack race and volleyball but conceded to Papaye in the football, draughts and table tennis.


Addressing the participants, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Papaye Fast Foods, Mr Divine Kwadwo Asiedu said the event was to create a platform for the company to fraternise and build on their long standing relationship with the media.


He said with the busy schedules of the two groups, the games offered a singular platform to bring them together under a friendly roof and exercise to keep fit.


He added that the occasion was also an opportunity for the media to tour the magnificent facility which boasts of a beautiful landscape, restaurant, and amusement centres that could serve as a place of relaxation, training camp and a venue for hosting various receptions.


President of the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC), Mr Ben Nunoo Mensah lauded Papaye for the initiative and entreated them to make it an occasional programme.


He said it was important such activities are put together to keep journalist fit and also enhance the relationship between both workforce.
