DJ Vyrusky Shuts Accra Down With His ‘Vac With Vyrusky’ Concert

Published

on

Picking an adjective to describe a throng of students from 15 to 18 years, raving to their favorite artistes while making friends and being reminded of the fact that they need to do their best to stay in school, is one of the most difficult task but the phrase, ‘the Vyrus is Spreading’ pretty much explains it.

Returning to the school that made him, Kofi Amoako, popularly known as DJ Vyrusky decided to go in a fashion characteristic of the career he has built for himself; bring on the jam. Together with a cast of 40 artistes that ranged from his label mates at Lynx (Kuame Eugene, Kidi and MzVee) to Shatta Wale to EL to Captain Planet to Kwesi Arthur to La Meme to Sister Afia to King Promise, as well as get Joey B and Pappy Kojo to turn the crowd up together after a long while. The list was more than impressive and one that ticked every single box of the students who came to St. Thomas Aquinas last Friday.

Making sure the stage never sees a dull moment, each of the artistes didn’t only bring on their A-game but move through the motions, getting the fans to sing along at some points, dance, jump and interact with the over 7,000 students who had gathered there from different schools. The event lived up to its billing and attained the rare state of a day party that only a handful of events have in Ghana.

If one thing was clear from the event, it was the fact that to win DJ of the Year for two years in a role, it takes more than just playing the jams of the time and certainly more than just tickling fans fantasies, it is about the interaction, the engagement and an understanding of what will make a fan excited as much as party along throughout.

With High School Clique as the organizers and Orijin Zero on board, Vac with Vyrusky, in the end, managed to convert fans, reestablish Vyrusky claim as the undisputable, rephrase what homecoming is supposed to be and reintroduce high schoolers to the possibilities of school opening the door to their best lives.

Agbeshie Pulls Over 5,000 Crowd For Play Africa BonFire Night With The Stars In Agbozume

Published

Fast Rising Rapper, Agbeshie, pulled over 5,000 audience in Agbozume at the Play Africa BonFire Night With The Stars on Saturday night, September 15, 2018. It was a day worth remembering; Agbeshie and his huge fanbase at the Southern Volta showed a lot of support for Play Africa Team and their artiste.

Agbeshie’s song ‘God’ which featured Bhimnation signee, Kelvyn Boy is currently No. 6 on the Top 10 of the most Played songs on Play Africa music app and this qualified him to be on the BonFIRE night. The event, which was hosted at Agbozume EP Church Park, is the biggest BonFIRE night so far being hosted by the Play Africa team.

The event manager for Play Africa, Mr. Kay Bentley, remarked that the crowd was huge that they were uncontrollable irrespective of the number of security personnel’s available. “We could not manage the crowd especially when the Play Africa team surprisingly presented a cake to celebrate the birthday of the superstar” Mr. Bentley remarked.

The show due to close at 10:00pm run into early hours of the next day around 3:00am – the crowd were enjoying themselves and wouldn’t go home unless Agbeshie and the other home acts signed to Play Africa app performed for longer hours.

Agbeshie, the “Ewe Rap God’ as the people of Volta called him, shared tears of joy upon seeing the crowd and the love that was shown during the event. His big hit song “Agbozume” has been an anthem in the town and every single person in the town could sing the entire song.

He reveled during the event that he is actually not from Agbozume but rather from Denu but the loved from Agbozume is overwhelming which sometimes makes him question his mum why she did not give birth to him at Agbozume.

During the interactive sessions of the event, Agbeshie noted, “some of the artiste gives out their songs for free due to poor Artiste management.’ ‘There are some managers who lack basic ideas about music industry and this makes us the growing ones live to accept the norms of posting songs for free download.” He also explained that he knows it will be a heartbreaking for most of his fans, as soon and very soon, people can only pay to download songs from musicians. He also explained to the people present that ‘buying my songs from Play Africa shows how much you love me as an artiste and that will give me more funds to do more great music.’

He also explained that he recorded the song ‘God’ because of the surprised award he received for being the Artiste of the Year during VMA18. ‘I am very grateful to God for how far he has brought me and this gave me the inspiration to write and perform that song.’

In the middle of the event, Agbeshie introduced a 14-year-old boy called ‘Kpesese’ who can rap shoulders with most Ghanaian rappers. The infusion of English, Twi and Ewe on his bars and the energy he possesses makes him unique. The event also experienced performances from the talented and best performer at VMA 2018 Nuh Prince and Afeke Foster.

The BonFIRE night with the stars is an event that Play Africa management team is using to educate musicians and music fans about the importance of buying records and the importance of ending free music downloads.

The event was supported by EventicGH, the organizer of Volta Music Awards, Kwamivi Ashiaby aka Ex Doggy.

Play Africa is available on Google Play store and can be installed with this direct link to stream all songs from Agbeshie https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.playafricaonline.android
