  • Description

    THERE WAS A WILD WELCOME FOR THE AMERICAN NEGRO POP STAR, CHUBBY CHECKER ... THE 'KING OF TWIST' ... WHEN HE ARRIVED IN ACCRA FOR A FOUR-DAY SERIES OF CONCERTS IN GHANA.

    MR. CHECKER FLEW TO GHANA STRAIGHT FROM THE UNITED STATES. HE'D HEARD SO MUCH ABOUT THE COUNTRY, HE SAID, AND HE HOPED HE'D BE ABLE TO SATISFY THE FANS DURING HIS BRIEF STAY.

    FOR THEIR PART, THE FANS GAVE A CONVINCING DEMONSTRATION OF THEIR ADMIRATION. THERE WERE WILD SCENES AT THE AIRPORT, WITH MR. CHECKER'S CAR BEING MOBBED AS POLICE STRUGGLED TO HOLD BACK THE CROWDS. AND HUGE SIGNS APPEARED IN THE CITY, PROCLAIMING ITS PLEASURE AT THE PRESENCE OF THE MAN WHO GAVE THE WORLD 'THE TWIST'.

    HE'LL JUDGE GHANA'S LEADING EXPONENTS OF HIS DANCE AND PRESENT THE PRIZES AT A TWIST COMPETITION THEY'VE ORGANISED IN HIS HONOUR.
