This year’s Ghana Meets Naija is as exciting as the event’s eight year run. From when the lineup was announced, it has stoked conversation, bringing to the fore the clout of the West African acts assembled for next Saturday’s event.

Wizkid, makes a grand return to the prestigious stage, after his momentous 2013 appearance. “Mama” hitmaker, Mayorkun, and Mr Eazi constitute the continent representing the green -white- green. Ghanaian acts include Stonebwoy, who is famed for his outstanding live performances, new kings KiDi, Kuami Eugene, King Promise, Patapaa, and Fancy Gadam, as well as Uptown Energy frontman Yaa Pono. Other acts have since joined the lineup.

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.

Empire Ghana, organizers have announced that tickets are out at major physical outlets, and are selling for 120, 200 and 300 cedis. Tickets are available at LIVE FM, STARR FM (located in the Meridian House, Ring Road), opposite Ecobank, and close to Nima Junction.

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?”

Usually overbooked, the concert has previously been mounted by Shatta Wale, Sarkodie, Falz, Tiwa Savage, Davido, Naeto C, R2Bees and a host of others.
Over 5000 people are expected to attend the event.

Published

on

J Black Code Events, Organisers of Brong Ahafo Music Awards ‘BAMA’ are totally crestfallen and despondent vis-a-vis the impecunious outcome of the region’s biggest event which was supposed to come off in Sunyani last Saturday, 11th August,2018.

Following the preparations towards the event which could not happen due to financial difficulties as revealed by organisers, stakeholders in the Brong Ahafo Region including members of parliament from the region were contacted for support in any way but failed.

Talking to SammyFlex this morning on Zylofon FM, Jblack Code Events, said non of the stakeholders from the region was willing to support them including Mp’s from the region. ”We traveled all the way from Sunyani to the flagstaffhouse in Accra to talk to all the 29 MP’s from the region to officially bring them on board since the award ceremony was meant to promote the creative arts industry in the Brong Ahafo Region but not even a pesewa came from the coffers of these MP’s to support the cause.

An amount of GHS 5000.00 was supposed to be paid for the venue set for the event but only 10% of the total amount of money could be afforded by the organisers. However the Managing Director of the venue ;Eusbett International Conference centre called Mr Attah Kwabena 2 moths ago agreed and assured to make the venue available for the event with the 10% payments and later the remaining balance payments be made which gave the organisers the confidence to go ahead with the program but unfortunately deceived them on the ‘D- day’.

Hello-gh.com who was present at Eusbett Conference Centre at Sunyani on the night of the event reported that, several attempts by the chiefs and queen mothers in Sunyani to plead on behalf on the organisers with the management of Eusbett Conference Centre failed leaving thousands of audience who thronged the venue to witness the awards ceremony in disappointment.

According to Organisers, BAMA awards ceremony has been postponed to 21st of September, 2018 and will witness wonderful performance from various music greats.
