Ghana music fans didn’t know what to expect when the battle lines was drawn between Samini and Bandana (Shatta Wale) on one music concert for the first time.
With thousands of concert goers in attendance, the Accra Sports Stadium, which seemed to be at capacity, it was in an uproar as fans anxiously waited for Samini and Bandana to take the stage and were not so interested in Akon, Big Sean, Wizkid and E.L.
Music lovers who attended the show also witnessed the exciting new Guinness bottle and its new commercial. Guinness is still the same rich, dark, deeply satisfying liquid, same price but just a different fresh outfit but more swag.
The arena was a bit hot but music fans were prepared to be warmed up by dancing along to songs of the above mentioned artistes.
We can report that in an attempt to keep the crowd enthused, the DJ Mensah played various hit songs from the artists on bill.
Whistling, shouting and stomping was heard, the fans just knew that the Akon who they had been waiting so long to see was about to make his appearance as the first performer.
Wizkid also did his best on stage, after him was E.L who also did his best.
Music fans doubted Big Sean’s performance since he was not really known in Ghana but Big Sean also proved himself well performance wise.
Now was the turn of the biggest acts of the night.
Bandana is indeed the hottest artistes on the streets today but some of his fans simply think he failed to grab biggest opportunity to impress 25, 000 plus crowd and possibly be properly crown, the King of Dancehall.
- Bandana had best entry (way better than Samini) but his performance lacked maturity. He was hauled onto the stage in a crane branded in SM4Lyf which was very spectacular to watch.
- Songs such as ‘Enter The Net’, ‘Dancehall King’ and more got the audience in the dancing mood.
- Shatta Wale using profane languages scored him some negatives marks from some of his fans but some true dancehall lovers also claim the language is part of the genre.
- Samini didn’t have good entry but his matured stagecraft creativity was the trick.
- Samini dug into old songs like ‘Gyae Shii’ and some surprising freestyles.
- Samini’s biggest highest point was using the live band and controlling the crowd. 70% of the fans were there for Shatta Wale but Samini managed to let Wale’s fans sing and dance to his songs.
- Samini got booed when he told the fans to observe a minute of silence for the late Ronnie Coaches.
Kudos to Charter House Ghana, the organizers of the event for the arrangement of the artistes on bill and been up to pull up over 25, 000 music lovers to the venue.
