Scores of fans and media personnel thronged the arrival hall of the Kotoka International Airport to welcome Nigerian artistes billed to perform at the 8th edition of the Ghana meets Naija concert on Friday.
The arrival of Mr. Eazi, Dice Ailes has justified that the night will experience nothing but mind-blowing performances.
Mr. Eazi on Starr Fm’s Zone with KOD said he is super excited to be in Ghana and will thrill fans to the best tunes come Saturday.
“I’m so excited to be in Ghana and I just can’t wait for tomorrow’s experience, I’m super charged .This is the first time I’m coming to perform since December last year and I have been looking forward to this day and I’m so prepared for Ghana meets Naija”, Mr.Eazi told KOD.
Dubbed the “Rescue Mission”, this year’s Ghana Meets Naija will witness performances from Stonebwoy, who is famed for his outstanding live performances, new kings KiDi, Kuami Eugene, King Promise, Patapeezy, Fancy Gadam, as well as Uptown Energy front man Yaa Pono. They will face their Nigeria rivals, Wizkid ,Mr. Eazi and Mayorkunn.
Regularly looked forward to, it has constantly served as the ultimate platform for the West African countries to execute their longstanding sibling rivalry in the area of music. Ghana and Nigeria have a lot in common musically, and constantly collaborate on projects.The Ghana Meets Naija Concert has since its institution, provided opportunity for both countries to celebrate the diverse sounds which unify us at the same time.
The 8th Ghana Meets Naija at the spacious FANTASY DOME, Trade Fair, La, Accra, is an answer to the call for a bigger event venue. The facility boasts state-of-the-art facilities and has already hosted a number of high-profile events.
The annual event has constantly proven a sought-after platform. It is therefore no wonder that, soon after the launch, rapper Yaa Pono, who is billed to represent the Ghana side of matters, started the ceremonial “big talk”.
Via Twitter weeks ago, the “Obiaa Wo Ne Master” man Ponobiom sought to question the readiness of his Nigerian counterparts at the event tweeting: “Dear Nigerian artist performing at #GhanaMeetsNaija are you sure you are ready for me on 9th June 2018 @ fantasy dome?”
