For those of you who could not attend this year’s MEGA concert-Ghana Meets Naija to be part of the experience, JoyFm has provided a ‘full coverage’ of the event for you guys to see what went down…
Bits have been cut off but the video will give you an idea as to how things unfolded!

Nana Ama McBrown’s performance can be found at 1:25:25 and 1:59:49…
From the video, you can all see what I meant by the below in my review;
1. Blocking of Patrons’ View By Photographers/Journalists
What sense does it make to have a well decorated and expensive stage for a concert if the patrons cannot fully have a clear view—the main purpose of the stage?
Journalists and photographers flooded the front bit of the stage, blocking the view of those who have paid to enjoy the concert (from the VIP section)….
No where in the world have I been to a concert that the organizers have allowed journalists/photographers to ‘sleep’ in front of the stage, thereby, blocking the view of patrons.
At most concerts, a gallery or designated spot is given to journalists and photographers at some corner.
In this era of hi-tech cameras, you do not have to be in the face of performers to be able to take good shots. It is not about the distance anymore, it is about the lens & power of your camera.
It was really inexcusable to have several journalists/photographers walking back and forth in front of the main stage.
If anything at all, a single (selected) photographer should be allowed to be there to officially capture images for the organizers. The others should be seated or comfortably cornered at the side of the stage—-somewhere
