“This is an election year and then most often bodybuilders are being affiliated and associated to the violence, so if the election is coming up we can use this as an opportunity to send a message across one; to the politicians to say that it should be a peaceful contest, it should be a violence-free election and we want bodybuilders and people who are not bodybuilders, weightlifters, powerlifters to know that you have to bring some sanity into the election i.e. don’t allow yourself to be used for any violent activity come the election 2020.” President of the GBFA, Hay Yartey said during the launch
The competition will also be used to select the national bodybuilding team, the Black Muscles, who will be representing the country at international events “The Man Ghana over the past 5 years is an event that we used to actually select bodybuilders into the national team, the Black Muscles, to represent Ghana in the following year in international events. So, this year’s event is meant to select bodybuilders into the Black Muscles.” Yartey further stated
