Starr FM powers All Stars Concert to support flood victims

Some of Ghana’s best artistes will stage an #AllStarsConcert at the Accra Sports Stadium to raise funds in support of victims of last Wednesday’s floods and fire disasters that caused havoc in Accra.

The concert which is powered by Starr 103.5FM, will see performances from Sarkodie, Kwabena Kwabena, Becca, Stonebwoy, Bisa K’dei, Joey B, EL, Edem, Daddy Lumba, Gyedu Blay Ambulley, Akosua Agyapong, Paulina Oduro, Irene Logan, Efya, Gifty Osei and a host of others.

'Push' hit maker, Becca, who birthed the idea, said “proceeds from the concert would go directly to the victims”.

Speaking to StarrFMonline.com, the affable singer said it was important every single musician comes out on the night “to give back” to society, using the “most powerful medium which is music”.

“Those I have mentioned have already agreed to get on board, but I am calling on a lot more. The gospel musicians, our seniors in the industry, everyone will be on board,” she added.

Becca, who has been to the scene of the Circle fuel station explosion said the damage is mind boggling.

“Yesterday I went to Circle where it all happened, it’s a crime zone now but I managed to get people to get me close enough and the chill when you get here itself is crazy,” she opined.

Speaking on the Starr Drive with Bola Ray and Anita Erskine on Tuesday, Becca said she was grateful to Starr FM for the support.

"I was amazed to find out Starr FM had a similar vision."

Rapper, Edem also said it is important for celebrities to use their fame to "empower" the vulnerable.
