Can Nigeria Redeem Itself Or Watch Ghana Do The Double Over Them?

Ghana Meets Naija 2012
Ghana Meets Naija 2012

The ‘Ghana Meets Naija’ concert is largely regarded as a musical showdown of sorts to establish supremacy between two countries whose musical trends have continuously influenced and rivaled each other in every way.
If indeed, the concert is a showdown, then last year’s edition was judged by many industry pundits as being a unanimous victory in favor of the Ghanaian artistes who excited the most with their performances on the night. This year therefore, the Naija acts are pledging to bring their best performances to bear on the night.
In typical Nigerian fashion, top Naija acts featuring on the bill have stated emphatically that come the night of 30th June, 2012, they will outclass their Ghanaian counterparts.
The Nigerian acts billed to perform include African hip-hop heavyweight, MI, his Chocolate city label mate and crooner Brymo whose hit single ‘Ara’ is one of the most heavily rotated songs on local radio and on the club scene.  Another Nigerian artiste taking Africa by storm, Davido, who has yet to perform his hit club banger ‘Dami Duro’ on any stage in Ghana.
Also billed to take the stage in Ghana for the first time will be Don Jazzy’s leading lady and Nigeria’s finest female act of the moment, Tiwa Savage, who has three hit songs on heavy rotation in Ghana and Africa ’Kelekele’, ‘Love Me’ and ‘Oma Ga’.
