With less than two weeks to go, the excitement towards this year’s Vodafone African Legends Night has started to build up faster as artistes and fans show enthusiasm for the September 24th show at the Banquet Hall, State House.
The celebrated South African music superstar Yvonne Chaka Chaka says she’s preparing vigorously towards the event since it will be her first major show headlining in Ghana.
In a video message, Yvonne said Ghanaians should throng the venue in their numbers as she takes the African Legends Night to a new level with her infectious pop melodies, youth-minded lyrics and girlish charm.
She wrote on her twitter page “Get your dancing shoes again. I am getting myself ready for u all.”
Yvonne seems to be an inspiration for Ghana’s young and energetic music star Wiyaala aka the young lioness of Africa. In one of her tweets, Wiyaala stated “I’m excited to share the same stage with Yvonne Chaka Chaka”. Performing at the African Legends Night has always been a wish for the talented singer whose genre of music –Afro-pop connects very well with the objective of the event.
His Excellency Jon Benjamin, the British High Commissioner to Ghana, a well-known fan of Wiyaala, is hoping to be at the event to watch Yvonne and Wiyaala as he tweeted “Can’t wait for this one: have always wanted to catch Yvonne live. With GH’s very own superstar Wiyaala in support”.
Vodafone who are the headline sponsors has promised to give out free tickets to fans who are subscribers of Vodafone Red.
According to organizers Global Media Alliance (GMA), their hotlines have been beaming with numerous calls from fans to buy tickets in bulk for friends and families to attend the show which will also feature Amandzeba Nat Brew, Akosua Agyapong and Nana Tuffuor.
