Last Saturday at the Sandbox Beach Club, Accra hosted its maiden edition of Boiler Room and had Ghana’s Best Hypeman Kojo Manuel representing for his country.

Aside interacting with the highly energetic crowd, spicing the DJs on deck and introducing Ghana’s favourite acts, he still had the crowd singing even during a power cut with local jama songs that went on till the power returned. If that’s not the mark of a good MC, we don’t know what is! Most patrons of the show left Sandbox screaming ACCCCRRRAAAA as it became the mantra for the night when Kojo Manuel begin chanting it.

The show which was headlined by Kwesi Arthur, Amarae, La Meme Gang also had DJ Sam of Carbon Night Club, DJ Mic Smith of YFM and Twist Night Club and the Iphone DJ who is the reigning Campus DJ of the Year on the turntables.

“N.C.T.W” stands for “NO CHURCH IN THE WILD”. It is mostly assumed that Christian brands are for a particual circle of people. But this is not a judgmental brand; we believe that Christ died for all so that all may live for Him. This is more than a street wear brand, this is God’s brand, and this brand is for everyone. “N.C.T.W” is an exhibition of the gospel designs used in spreading the good news of salvation. “N.C.T.W” is an exhibition managed under the Tribe Of God (T.O.G) design label.
