Popular Ghanaian actress Nana Ama McBrown shocked music audience at the Accra International Conference Center on Saturday night when she put up a spectacular music performance during the Legends and Legacy Ball held to honour Abrantie Amakye Dede.
McBrown earned a standing ovation when, during her performance, she was joined on stage by two of Ghana’s ‘diminutive’ actors, Joe Shortingo and Taller of Cantata fame.
The two actors were dressed in black tuxedos and they sprayed the actress with money while she rocked the stage.
Even her ex-lover, Okyeame Kwame had no choice but to enjoy the performance.
Prior to the show, the list of artistes advertised to perform included Freddy Meiway, Samini, Okyeame, Nacy, Kwabena Kwabena and number others.
The audience was therefore shocked when midway into the show, actress Nana Ama McBrown appeared on stage wearing a see-through lacey outfit and singing Amakye Dede’s ‘Asem Tu Mea Ka Bi Ma Me’.
Underneath McBrown’s black see-through lace was a black mini dress to cover her sexy breast and lower part but revealing her sexy tummy.
Many thought she was on stage to perform her recent single with 2toff. But she followed the trend of the night when she sang in key and did an amazing rendition of Amakye Dede’s song
McBrown arguably stole the show from the headlined artistes as she rocked beyond everybody’s expectation.
She had her set of dancers, an indication that she might be crossing over to the music industry soon.
Her performance was not only top notch but a total deviation from the usual Ghanaian musicians’ attitude of just going on stage to perform without giving the audience something to talk about.
There were also exciting performances by Samini, Okyeame Kwame, Nacy, No Tribe, Kwabena Kwabena, Eazzy, Becca, Daasebre Ahofe Dwamena, Steve Bedi, Meiway and Abrantie Amakye Dede himself.
Organized by Imajin Advertising, the Legends and Legacy Ball is an event aimed at honouring Ghanaian living legends and promoting excellence in the entertainment industry.
All the supporting artistes who performed at the event did not sing their own songs but performed their own renditions of songs by the honoree of the night, Amakye Dede.
Abrantie, as part of his awards for the night, was presented with a 24-carat gold medal worth $28,000.
The presentation was done by the organizers of the event, Imanjin Advertising.
In addition, the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) also presented a plaque to Abrantie.
Abrantie expressed his appreciation to the organizers of the show, Imajin Advertising and to Ghanaians for the honour bestowed on him and for supporting him to achieve the heights he had reached.
