Sean PaulIn case you missed it, the news was broken last night on Bola Ray?s popular Drive Time show on Joy 99.7 FM. Sean Paul Ryan Francis Henriques, winner of 2004 Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album, is slated to perform in Ghana on December 9, 2006 at the Accra International Conference Centre.

It was revealed when Bola Ray spoke live on air to Babs, the man in charge of Babs Entertainment, organisers of the event, via phone. Prior to this disclosure, Bola has been dropping hints about it on his radio show.

Sean Paul?s live concert in Ghana has been rumoured many times but never has it been made official on a radio station as credible as Joy FM. Another well-known international star, Akon, is to touch down for the concert as an MC.
