The show started few minutes after 8pm with iconic reggae presenter and Communication Director of Musicians Union of Ghana Daddy Bosco being the host. He delivered up to expectations. The high point of his job last night was when he chronologically dated the musical journey of Rocky Dawuni.
The lioness of Africa Wiyaala who never disappoints started her performances with ‘Africa’ and kept the audience standing and dancing throughout her performance. She displayed professionalism and uniqueness as a performer – a true daughter of the land.
Rocky Dawuni then took over and rocked the crowed with songs from his previous album and ‘African thriller’, ‘Rock your soul’, ‘Shine a light’ from his latest album ‘Branches of the same tree’. The rain god Samini halfway through the show joined Rocky Dawuni on stage to perform ‘Black star’ which got the audience chanting and asking for more.
The Grammy nominee paid tribute to the legendary Ghanaian music band Osibisa by performing their one time global hit ‘Sunshine day’ together with Wiyaala and also did a rendition of Bob Marley’s ‘Get up stand up’ which is also on the latest album.
The Deputy Minister for creative Arts Honorable Dzifa Gomashie, Manifest, Panji Anoff and other important dignitaries were all in attendance. The show was well planned and produced with stage, band, light well-coordinated.
