Ghana’s biggest musical concert, the GHANA MEETS NAIJA concert is set to hit the United Kingdom and United States later this month and early September respectively.
In what is fast becoming one of the most anticipated events on the social calendar for Africans in London and New York, the renowned musical concert takes a humorous twist with a touch of comedy for its international debut.
In a groundbreaking move, Empire Entertainment has collaborated with popular African comedian, Julius Agwu to put together the mega concert now dubbed, “Ghana Meets Naija – Crack Ya Ribs.”
The collaboration is being termed by most industry pundits as a “match made in heaven” as Julius Agwu’s “Crack Ya Ribs” comedy sessions have consistently thrilled fans in London over the last couple of years and will be making a debut in America. The Ghana Meets Naija brand on other hand has over the last two years earned the status of the most highly anticipated and biggest musical concert on the rave calendar. Thus, it’s set to be two electrifying shows as the very artistes from Ghana and Nigeria as well as the continent’s finest comedian strut it out in front of thousands on the world stage.
According to the Empire Entertainment, taking the Ghana Meets Naija brand to an international audience is the realization of a vision that begun after last year’s event, and was aimed at bringing the brand world attention. The collaboration with a major Nigerian Icon such as Julius Agwu further emphasizes the fact that, the Ghana Meets Naija brand is aimed at fostering unity between the two countries through entertainment. He ended, “And so in the spirit of Unity, folks in London and New York must prep themselves for a mega showdown as Ghana Meets Nigeria on neutral grounds.”
The London event will be held on the 26th August, 2012 inside the plush and high capacity Lighthouse Hall, Camberwell and will feature performances from the likes of Gasmilla, as well as GH-UK acts Kwamz N Flavour and Mr. Silva. From Nigeria will be MAVIN’s DPrince and hip-hop heavyweight MI.
The show will make its grand debut in New York during the 7th Annual Nigerian Entertainment Awards weekend with top acts from Nigeria at the Symphony Space Sharp Theater, 2537 Broadway, NY 10025.
The night’s line-up of entertainers will include D’Prince, VIP, Seyi Law, Kwaw Kesse, Chii Gurl, Senator, Yvonne Nelson, Funky Bone, Lighter, and Jay Ghartey. Tickets are selling at $30 regular, $50 VIP and $100 VVIP. Ticket Hotline is 856 506 5700.
