African Dancehall king, Samini will host Jamaican Dancehall superstar, Demarco in Ghana on July 1st, 2012 in a highly anticipated event dubbed “I Love My Life” Concert organized by Phamous TV, LCA Ghana Chapter and Viasat One Television.
Demarco was named as the main international artist for the show after Samini, an LCA Ghana ambassador, had asked his fans on facebook and twitter to name a dancehall artiste they would like to see perform alongside the decorated young Ghanaian performer.
Demarco has been a favorite of most Ghanaian music lovers and party-goers since songs such as ‘I Love My Life’, ‘True Friends’, ‘Fallen Soldiers’ and ‘Nuff Gyal’ became radio-friendly in Ghana. The 30-year old has since been linked to local concerts times without number, though none has materialized until now .
“I have been contacted by so many event promoters from Ghana but either no agreement was reached or the timing was bad until I was approached by Phamous Media Group / LCA Ghana a couple of weeks ago; and I’m more than glad to be doing Ghana as my first stop in Africa”, Demarco told The GH. Entertainer newspaper in a telephone conversation on June 1st.
Demarco (a.k.a Collin Edwards) was born on September 28, 1982 in St. Catherine, Jamaica. He migrated to New York in 1998 where his passion for music increased and he learnt to play several musical instruments. He started creating dancehall, R&B and hip hop rhythms with drums, keyboard and others. Demarco has written and produced songs for dancehall and hip hop greats like Sean Paul, Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliot, Bounty Killer, Elephant Man Olivia (of G-Unit fame) and Styles P. “. He has recently recorded a remix to Rihanna’s Billboard #1 hit Rude Boy.
Multi-international award winner, Samini is hosting / headlining his second international concert under a year after he had pulled over 18,000 fans to the Accra sports stadium alongside Jamaican dancehall star, Mavado in October last year. After a month stay in the U.S to record two songs with international producer, Coptic, the MTN music ambassador has returned to Ghana to release a brand new single, Too Bad (June 2012), produced by El, ahead of the Republic Day showdown at the Dome.
Other Ghanaian musicians expected to share the stage with the two dancehall stars are highlife show stoppers Rex Omar and Kwabena Kwabena. Hip hop/ Hip life stage rockers Tinny, Asem, Edem, Kaki, Tinny, Jupiter, Nsemkwa (Yaa Pono), Myron AK etc. Eazzy is billed to hit the stage for the first time since she got back from the Big Brother Stargame house in South Africa.
A top Nigerian music star would be announced the surprise act on the night. The Concert which targets all class of people for its diverse selection of highly sought-after artistes, will be hosted by Abeiku Santana of Okay FM.
The event which is scheduled for the Dome (Accra International Conference Centre) will primarily aim at raising awareness on the uniqueness of the Shai Hills Resource Reserve and the conservation-led business model being planned and implemented by the LCA Ghana Chapter. Actively present in 16 African countries, The Leadership for Conservation in Africa (LCA) was initiated in August 2006 by the South African National Parks (SANParks), Gold Fields Ltd and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
