Basil Anthony

Night life in Accra has gradually taken shape and one of the biggest events driving that success is no doubt the Chicken-N-Beer Party organised by Silky Entertainment.  
It is an entertaining weekly event held on Sundays at Rockstone’s Office to provide entertainment and offer revellers a platform to overcome their Sunday boredom.
Within a short period, it has become talk of the town event, such that every Sunday, it gathers one of the biggest revellers in Accra.
Currently it is the longest running weekly party. Sometime this year, it will enter its second year with more strategies to take partying to the next level.
The face behind this unique idea of partying is Basil Anthony otherwise called CEO Extraordinaire.
Basically, he is a brilliant young man with creative and lucrative ideas. He fits into any environment he finds himself in and no wonder he is rocking the hospitality industry with his Chicken-N-Beer.
Basil was trained in Information Technology & Web Development in the United Kingdom at the Highbury College in Portsmouth. He has worked for a wide range of international and local companies including the London Palace Casino (U.K), Prestige Security (U.K) and Top Industries (Ghana).
He moved to Ghana in 2006 and in April that year he established Silky I.T. Production which is Ghana’s second to none Domain Name Registration, Web Hosting, Website Development and I.T. Consultancy Company.
In 2010, he added Bulk SMS to the list of services Silky I.T. Production offers and named it TextGhana.com.
In 2009 he developed TicketGhana.com which he later incorporated as “TicketGhana.com Ltd.”
TicketGhana is the first and most preferred ticket vendor in Ghana. It is a platform created to make selling and purchasing of tickets easier. TicketGhana has been the business of printing tickets, securing tickets and distribution of tickets across outlets such as Koala, Silverbird lifestyle store, Melcom shops, Batsonaa Total, Tema Community 11 Shell, and other shops and supermarkets.
TicketGhana has the best social media promotional platform in Ghana using media such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Blackberry Messenger, etc. to promote and advertise products, services, events, etc… and has a very successful track record for all content promoted till date.
In 2011, he co-founded Silky Entertainment, a company with a deep understanding of the local entertainment market.
Silky Entertainment can boast of their trademark event, the “Sunday Chicken-N-Beer Party” which is Ghana’s longest running weekly event.
