The eighth edition of the ‘Ghana Meets Naija’ was launched on Tuesday, May 8 at the forecourt of the First Atlantic Bank at Airport in Accra.
This year’s edition of the event will take place at the Fantasy Dome of the Ghana International Trade Fair Centre in Accra on Saturday, June 9.
According to the organisers, Ghanaian artistes billed to perform are Stonebwoy, King Promise, Kuami Eugene, Kidi, Fancy Gadam, Patapaa, Yaa Pono (Ponobiom) and a host of others who will lock horns with Nigerian artistes such as Wizkid, Mayourkun, Mr Eazy, among others.
Over the years, ‘Ghana Meets Naija’ has been seen as the platform for the biggest artistes in both Ghana and Nigeria to share one stage and thrill music lovers. It has always seen massive patronage because of the list of top African artistes it parades.
Last year’s edition of ‘Ghana Meets Naija’ was so
successful that it had to return this year, and the organisers intend to make it even better than the previous editions.
“For us, the night with the stars is the measure of musical trends of the coming year, amplifying the biggest stars to showcase and celebrate their talents,” the organisers told BEATWAVES.
Speaking at the launch, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) for Empire Entertainment, Laillah Crystal Banda, emphasized that this year’s edition of the concert will be a unique experience for fans.
Over the years, the concert has hosted the likes of Wizkid, The Mavins headed by Don Jazzy, Tiwa Savage, Wande Coal, Neato C, Olamide, Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, R2Bees and a tall list of A-list artistes.
Media conglomerate, EIB Network, will be the main media sponsors to live broadcast this memorable event.
