Witnessing history is priceless. And for a headline which categorically stated that, “Men Don’t Dare”, the whole myth is over.
So men kindly “dare” by allowing Jayne recount to you all what you may have missed last year. Enjoy.
Afro-pop star, Becca felt charged to pour out every bit of her impressive repertoire at the second edition of Becca’s Girl Talk show at the National Theatre and she almost did that with a sweet encouragement from her very receptive all-female audience.
Once Martha Ankomah had said the opening prayer, it was all action-packed as Herty Borngreat did the opening act with an impressive rap piece.
She succeeded in setting the National Theatre on fire but she was not the only one who did that because the headline act herself, Becca was something else.
She thrilled the already charged audience with every appearance and did almost all the songs from her repertoire to the delight of the audience who sang along without hesitation.
From Daa Ke Daa, U lied To Me, African Woman, just name it and Becca will deliver. It was not only about her own compositions. She thrilled everyone with Kojo Antwi’s Mireka, it was indeed exciting.
Though it was an all-female affair some male were on stage to support Becca. Actor Prince David Osei was on stage and did Kwabena Kwabena’s bit of You Lied To Me, followed by Gideon Aryeequaye, D-Black and MI from Naija.
Becca went gospel saying this has been the most difficult year for her as an artiste, “|but God has seen me through,” she said. Sony Badu took over and set the Theatre on fire.
Nana Ama McBrown showed everyone how versatile she was by joining Becca on stage to do some Adowa steps. She later took over the stage when Becca left to change and got everyone on their feet dancing and singing along with her. She really shook the place to the admiration of all.
Becca was back on stage to do a few more songs. She later invited the former first lady Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings on stage to share a few words with the over-excited audience which she did. She advised the all-female audience to have a high self-esteem, read, exercise and be bold. Another surprise of the night was when Nana Konadu’s only son Kimathi, joined her on stage with a beautiful bouquet. Guess what? Kimathi is 26 years and single. His message to everyone is, “if you believe in something, you can achieve it.”
The second edition of the Becca Girl talk was spectacular and we ladies will be looking forward to another edition next year. It was all a live-band affair that night, kudos to the band who supported all the artistes.
