They visited several radio stations for short interviews as well as promote the show the next day. Sarkodie, Nana Boroo and Yaa Pono who were on other engagements joined the crew on Saturday.

Kumasi was a real success so it’s onto the next city to be toured is Tamale. According to the C.E.O. of Black Avenue Muzik, D-Black, he hopes to complete the tour before August 2011. The purpose of the tour is to promote the D-Black brand and also Hip Hop music made in Ghana.
He told GhanaCelebrities.Com “Not just my music but music from all the artists on the tour. The aim is to promote the music made in every corner of the country. To have fans appreciate the music and see the artiste perform live wherever they live from the Northern part of Ghana down to the Ashanti Region to the Greater Accra Region.”
He continued: “It’s also to give the fans an unforgettable experience”, adding that “I’m also using it as a platform to develop my skills as a performer on international stages.”
At the end of the tour, some of the proceeds of the tour will be donated to the needy and underprivileged children who need an education. “D-Black and the Black Avenue Musik team will give some underprivileged children in society a platform on which they can build their dreams by having a good, quality basic education.” He said.
