The annual Ghana Meets Naija concert, one of the most anticipated entertainment events of the year is going down live on March 27 at the Accra International Conference Centre. Empire Entertainment, organizers of the concert have announced Shatta Wale and M.anifest as the flag bearers of Ghana.
And from our neighbouring country Davido, Falz and Tiwa Savage will represent the green and white nation of Nigeria. This was made known at a press launch organized at the Kokomlemle Corporate offices of uniBank, sponsors of this year’s event, Tuesday. Nii Ayi, DJ Vyrusky, and DJ Lord were also announced as disc jockeys for the event touted as the biggest concert in the region. They will be supported by Nigerian counterpart DJ OB.
Laillah Crystal Banda, a representative from Empire Entertainment wet the appetite of the gathering by embellishing the upcoming event: “This year’s rendition rides the concept synonymous with the recently ended elections. Candidates from various parties were vying for the presidential seat so Empire borrows from that idea asking, ‘with this struggle of power, which artiste will sit on the seat of power?’ The idea also stems from the fact that for the past years, the conversation has been about one individual winning or even losing and even further, one nation winning or losing… Official tagline is conquer, command and control,” she stated.
It promises to be fun if past edition of the show is anything to go by. Ghana and Nigeria have a long standing friendship and rivalry which will be consolidated during this mouth-watering showdown.
