The event promises to be the biggest Ghanaian music celebration this year and would feature live PA’s from Hiplife royalty such as and a special guest artiste (the Hiplife Don Dada).
Rapping from the ladies’ side would be Abrewa Nana and Manye Mercy (formerly of Triple M fame). UK support would come from Sonny Bali, Candy Man, Sonny Achiba, House of Lords, Frankie Boy and Roman Fathers.
There would as well be a comedy set from the funniest man in Ghana - the one and only Agya Koo.
