Going techy is the new cool these days and MyGhPay, an integrated and secure online payments and collections platform, introduced by GT Bank, couldn’t help but bring its cool features to the home of cool, the University of Ghana, Legon.
With a concert dubbed ‘Now Hear Cool’, coming off at the Elizabeth Sey Hall this weekend, November 4, the godMC himself, M.anifest, who is also another cool fella, is expected to entertain his base to some of his biggest tunes including ‘No Shortcut to Heaven’, ‘Someway Bi’, ‘Nowhere Cool’, and ‘Time No Dey’.
Supporting him on stage is a heavyweight of talent including Kofi Kinaata, Ebony, KiDi, Kwesi Authur, Worlasi, Darko Vibes, Big Ben and Kayso with Live FM’s Masta Jay on the turntables to keep the ravers grooving till the end of the concert.
As part of the hall’s weekly celebration, the concert will serve as the climax of activities and is under the theme ‘Promoting real talents 3verywhere’ and students and alumni of Elizabeth Sey Hall are definitely in for a treat.
With massive support from GT Bank, Aftown, TTD Media and Singitdamnit Music, the concert is expected to be the biggest in recent history, looking at the level of talent and their appeal to the university’s demographics and myghpay is seeking to use the opportunity to embed its platform in the minds of students.
M.anifest rap career started taking shape while he was in Minnesota in the US. He was studying from 2001 to 2005 and stayed after graduation to pursue his music dream until 2012. He released his breakout album, Immigrant Chronicles: Coming to America (2011), his third, after Manifestations (2007) and The Birds and The Beats (2009).
He has since topped up with other releases including Apae: the price of free EP (2013) and Nowhere Cool (2016). He has since been one of the most respected lyricists on the continent, winning multiple awards — most notably Best Rapper of the Year at the 2017 Ghana Music Awards, an award he also won in 2013.
With a string of hits and a couple of awards to back her rising stardom, Ebony, known privately as Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng is the latest addition to a growing club of Ghanaian dancehall/Afrobeats artists. Widely known for her hit songs ‘Poison’ and ‘Kupe’, Ebony’s latest hit, which radio and club DJs can’t have enough of is ‘Date Your Father’. Ebony will definitely be thrilling her fans.
Born Martin King Arthur, and known as the Fante Rap God (FRG), Kofi Kinaata’s freestyles would definitely endure him to the audience tomorrow night. Since the release of ‘Oh Azaay’ in 2014 and ‘Made In Taadi’, and ‘Susuka’ December, 2015, Kofi Kinaata has shot to national attention with another banger, ‘Confession’, released in December, 2016. He has done major collaborations with artistes such as Sarkodie, Jayso, Castro, Becca among others.
