GTCO Music Concert celebrates sounds from Africa

Ghana and Nigeria were again reunited on one stage as artistes from both countries thrilled patrons at the GTCO Music Concert which came off at the Accra Sports Stadium on Friday, December 17.

The concert, organised by GT Bank, explored the joys of music and celebrated the beauty in diversity with the likes of Davido, Adekunle Gold, Wande Coal, Niniola and Buju TYE representing Nigeria and Ghanaian artistes like Kuami Eugene, Stonebwoy, Gyakie, Adina, RzBees among others.

Even though the event did not start at the scheduled time, the wait was worth it as the artistes treated patrons to some wonderful tunes from their collections.

The concert was heavily attended

Kuami Eugene performed songs such as Angela, Bunker, Tena Fie, Open Gate among others. His energy on stage was on another level and made sure he engaged his fans. From how the crowd cheered him on and sang his songs word for word, it was obvious that they had fun.

Stonebwoy, who was advertised as one of the big acts on the night did not disappoint, he got the place charged with some freestyle before he got on stage and it was welcomed with a lot of cheers and screams from the crowd. He also performed some of his songs such as Shuga, Run Go, Putuu and Ololo. The icing on the cake was when he performed his Activate song with Davido, who he featured on that song.

Davido was all fun on stage

His entry alone shook the stadium, almost as if the crowd did not believe it was him because though he had been announced as a performing act, not much was heard of him in terms of publicity for the show so it was a different feel when Davido appeared on stage.

From his looks, it was obvious that he came there to have fun and entertain those gathered and he did just that. Some of the songs he performed included Assurance, Fem, Fall On You, Jowo, etc.

Ghana’s self-acclaimed songbird Gyakie was good on the night, with her soft, smooth deep voice, she got the crowd excited.

Performances by R2bees, Adina, Kofi Kinaata, Adekunle Gold, Wande Coal, Niniola and Buju TYE were also great.
