How ‘old’ hiplife artistes rocked MTN Music Festival

Their introduction on stage completely changed the atmosphere. Loud joyous voices were heard as patrons readied to reminisce the hiplife days.

The curtain was raised by T-Blaze, one of the rappers who ‘ruled’ back in the day with hit songs like ‘Wo Sisi Ye Wo Ya’, ‘Feeling No Ye Deep’ and ‘Secretary’; followed by Exdoe as he performed ‘Maba’ – a song rated by many industry folks as one of the best and hottest diss tracks in the history of Ghana’s music industry.

Prince Bright of Bukbak fame, known for his unique voice texture and rap skills was next. Unlike T-Blaze and Exdoe, Bright performed two songs – ‘Chingilingi’ and ‘I’m Going To Come’. The rapper cum singer acknowledged Ronnie Coaches, a member of the group who died six years ago.

Although their time on stage was relatively short, the trio who appeared as surprise acts, did not disappoint. Aside the energy they injected into their craft, the ‘hiplifers’ engaged the audience amid cheers.

Before their performances, Hitz FM’s Andy Dosty held the audience spellbound with his mixes and soothing voice.

Held at the Accra International Conference Centre, Friday, December 6, the MTN Music Festival (Farmers Day edition) celebrated and expressed the cultural heritage of the Ghanaian through music.

The MTN Music Festival is organized in partnership with Slip Entertainment and it’s held as a prelude to key national holidays including the Independence Day and May Day celebrations.

Other performers who graced the occasion were Rex Omar, Amakye Dede, Samini, KiDi, Kyekyeku Band and Ramzy.
