Tarkwa came to a virtual standstill over the weekend as Gold Fields Ghana organized a music concert to climax its 25th anniversary celebration. The music concert drew over ten thousand crowd from Tarkwa and beyond who enjoyed performances from the “Fante” rap god Kofi Kinaata as well as the lady’s man Kidi.
The concert started with performances from underground artiste from the Western Region who set the tone for the concert, with the crowd screaming for more at each performance.
Kidi was the first big act to perform. He had the community members singing along to his hit song ‘Adiepena’. The crowd went agog when he started singing his latest song ‘Thunder’. Kidi kept the crowd excited as he performed hit song after hit song.
Before Kofi Kinaata mounted the stage, DJ Wallpaper treated the crowd with electrifying tunes which kept them gyrating and asking for more. Even with all the exciting performances, the crowd had lots of energy to jive along with the ‘Confession’ hitmaker ‘Kofi Kinaata’ throughout his performance.
Kofi Kinaata dropped hit song after hit song to prove he is the real “Fante” rap god. He sang both his old songs and current hit song ‘Malafaka’. Kofi Kinaata engaged the crowd throughout the performance as they sang along in unison to most of his songs throughout his performance.
A football tournament among Senior High Schools within the Tarkwa-Nsuaem municipality preceded the music concert and Fiaseman Senior High School took the cup home. Throughout their 25 years’ journey, Gold Fields Ghana has improved livelihoods, and continue to lead and drive positive transformations within their host communities and nationally.
