The annual Ghana Meets Naija concert, put together by Empire Ghana, has constantly proven a sought-after platform for the West African nations to play out the musical sibling rivalry that exists between them. It is therefore no wonder that, soon after the launch, rapper Yaa Pono, who is billed to represent the Ghana side of matters, has started the ceremonial “big talk”.
Via Twitter, the “Obiaa Wo Ne Master” man has sought to undermine the readiness of his Nigerian counterparts at the event (which is billed for the Fantasy Dome of the Trade Fair Centre, June 9), tweeting: “Dear Nigerian artist performing at #GhanaMeetsNaija18 are you sure you are ready for me on 9th June 2018 @ fantasy dome?”
Dubbed the “Rescue Mission”, this year’s event will also witness performances from Stonebwoy, who is famed for his outstanding live gigs, KiDi, Kuami Eugene, King Promise, Patapaa, and Fancy Gadam. Nigeria will be represented by Wizkid, Mayorkun, and Mr. Eazi. More acts are expected to join the roster soon.
Usually overbooked, the concert, widely deemed the biggest West African show, has previously been mounted by A- Listers as Shatta Wale, Sarkodie, Falz, Tiwa Savage, Davido, Naeto C, R2Bees and a host of others.
Patrons can buy tickets at LIVE FM and Starr FM on the Ring Road and also via the Flexipay App.
