The Fantasy Dome, Trade-Fair, was turned upside down over the weekend as Globacom Ghana brought together some of the best artist in Africa under one roof, on one stage.
Accra could not have been electrified any better than having award winning Nigerian Comedians, Basketmouth and Gordons, alongside Ghana’s broadcast journalist Nana Aba Anamoah as hosts. The trio shared jokes, did freestyle raps, and the famous Akwaaba/Shaku-Shaku dance, all to entertain the fans.
The event was purely about performances with seven top African artists rocking the stage with their respective crafts for that memorable night.
The commencement of the main show with Ghanaian star Patapaa was okay for the night. His performance was a bit lukewarm in the beginning but when he dropped his famous One-Corner song, the atmosphere changed and the audience exploded uncontrollably with that crazy dance.
Yemi Alade came second and performed with a live band. Her stage craft was well planned and calculated. In fact, some fraction of fans mentioned her as the best performer on the night not forgetting she is the only female artist on the bill.
She electrified the audience with her energetic chorography, increasing the tempo song by song. Performing songs like Mama Africa, Tangerine, Want You, Come and See My Moda, the song she did with MzVee and Johnny.
It was a well organised, simple but excellent performance by all standard. Her costume was a little explicit but just okay to get the eyes of guys glued to her in admiration.
Right after Yemi was the ladies’ man Flavour, who just by the mention of his name by MC Gordons, got the ladies screaming irrepressible and couldn’t wait to see him. He did not disappoint either as almost all the ladies were on their feet from start to end of his performance.
Kwame Eugene, who happens to be the second Ghanaian to perform, came just after Flavour. Even though he could not lift the audience to a different level, he did not drop the momentum either. He managed to sustain the fans with his popular songs as DJ Vyrusky was on stage with him as his DJ.
Tekno succeeded him on stage and did not come short either. His fantastic dance moves coupled with his famous songs like Pana, Yawa, Only One, Go and Duro were enough to get the fans crazy for him.
The King of rap music in Ghana, Sarkodie did not disenchant as he never disappoints. He carried the audience to a different level and gave the Ghanaians who were thinking Nigerian acts are always on top some hope and a reason to be proud of Ghanaian acts.
Gboza, Pain Killer, Baby, U Go Kill Me, Adonai, Pon D Ting, Illuminati, Rap Attack and hope which featured Obrafour were some of the hit songs he performed. From entre to departure, King Sark got the audience on their feet jumping and screaming to his songs one after the other.
Ghanaian Comedian, DKB, at a point in his performance jumped on stage to give King Sark that moral support and boost the fans on as the whole building was on fire.
Davido came to crown the show and draw the curtains on the night, and trust me he is worth it. You just do not want to even blink your eyes as you are afraid you may be missing something great.
He did not only come to give a spine-tingling performance, he thoroughly lifted the atmosphere and got audience running unto the stage. It only took the intervention of his bodyguards and military officers present to drive the fans from off stage and give him the space to perform.
However, that was not without making him fall on the ground. A fan jumped on him and both of them were on the ground before anybody could help him up and protect him from further attack.
But he came back stronger and seem not to be bordered at all with that incident. He started off with Dami Duro, went ahead to perform songs like; Fall, Aye, Gobe, Skelewu, Fia, The Money, Assurance, Biko, and Odo featuring Kidi among others.
His performance was just overwhelming and a perfect one to keep fans wanting more and eager to be at the next event.
The stage set-up was one of the best. The lightening was excellent; sound was on point but there were one or two challenges with electric-power just when the show commenced. However, the technical support team was able to put it under control.
Globacom Ghana, launched “Glo Unlimited 24/7,” a new product at the event and it received massive instant response from customers. It is a voice and data package that gives customers unlimited subscriptions for only GHC300 a month.
Head of Business, Glo Mobile Ghana, Uche Ojo, said: “In line with the dreams of our founding father, we are here in Ghana to make sure business is flourishing by giving our customers and fellow Africans the best of service. New mega data plans will be introduced soon to make sure our customers get the best because they deserve the best and Glo is known for giving the best,” he said.
The Glo Mega Music Concert is the second of five programmes scheduled to entertain and celebrate customers as well as encourage them to keep using the telecommunication network that has earned the nickname Grand Masters of Data.
The third event which is also a comedy show is stipulated to take place on the 9th of September which is basically two weeks from now.
