What a difference a year makes. Last year Ghana Meets Naija was all over the media. This year the media headlines will be decidedly more positive.
Empire Entertainment was able assemble a staggeringly star-crammed bill of music A-listers who have dominated Africa such as 4×4, Guru, Lousika, Bino, Sala, Davido, Brymo, MI, Kaakie with the exception of Buk Bak (Bright missed his flight from USA).
2131 new signed artiste, Lousika opened the main stage on Saturday and confirmed that she may be the next hiphop queen irredeemably bland but she sure can sing.
Sala’s infectious songs and stage craft charmed the whole audience as she also did her best as she left Bino to stun the audience with her dance moves too.
Julius ‘Genius’ Agwu the Nigerian comedian and KOD steered the affairs of the music concert well.
Kaakie stepped up her game with a sofa placed at the center of the stage as once a while she sat on to dance in.
Chemphe also did his best when he come on stage.
DJ Black was the official DJ for the nite but he had help from DJ Neptune repping Nigeria and DJ Mensa holding it down for Ghana as they also dished out good music for the gathering to dance.
One music act Ghanaians were eager to see was Tiwaa Savage. She proved her well on stage as she scored points for Nigeria. Once a while she interacted with the fans in the pidgin language.
YQ came opened the stage for the Nigerian musicians. Before he left the stage, he invited D-Black to also perform his ‘Vera’ song.
Brymo’s ‘Ara’ song exploded in the speakers when he was called on stage and your guess will definitely be right that the whole audience was on their feet dancing.
Some performances on the night that deserve mention came from R2Bees.
New act Davido turned the hall into a sea of raised hands with his performance despite the fact that was his first time performing.
Then came the Chocolate City artiste, Mister Incredible aka MI as he churned all his hit songs one by one to the crowd who just loved every little bit of what he did on stage.
4X4 score more points for Ghana when they took their fans back into time with some of their own songs before performing ‘Yesi Yesi’ and ‘Mokoni’ which just made the crowd love them more.
Attendants of the show concluded that last year was nicer than this year and they hope it gets better in 2013.
