EVENT REVIEW: Ghana ‘Beats’ Naija Again + Photos Of The MC-KOD

blank
True to its hype, the second edition of the ‘Ghana Meets Naija’ musical face-off which took place on June 30 lived up to the expectations and has consequently been rated as the biggest show the year has seen so far.
The already established cordial relationship between Ghana and Nigeria aided in this concept which gives the opportunities to artistes who have banging hits in the year from thoese two countries to showdown on one platform.
Though not a competition, it was quite glaring that, the artistes representing the home team on the red, gold and green with a black five-pointed star in the centre of the gold stripe ‘outclassed’ their counterparts who represented the green and white colours.
The away team-Naija was at a numerical disadvantage as they had only five artistes on the bill, compared to as many as ten (Buk Bak didn’t perform) from the home country, Ghana.
The two opposing DJs, Ghana’s untouchable, DJ Mensa and Nigerian’s finest DJ Nepture both had the chance to entertain patrons for close to ten minutes each by dishing out hits upon hits after couple of performances.
It’s difficult to pin-point which of them stole the night as songs played by them were received by patrons and got them on their feet dancing.
His royal blackness, DJ Black excited and teased the patrons on the time table with mixes of various genre of music.

Noise Over Artistes Billed For ‘Ghana Meets Naija’ 2012

Ghana Meets Naija 2012

Bola Ray and his Empire Entertainment team have created a very big brand out of nothing that is progressively and simultaneously bringing Ghana and Nigeria together to showcase Africa music to the world.
With just a year old and going into its second year, the ‘Ghana Meets Naija’ musical show has been fully embraced and endorsed by both governments of the two countries.
Ghana and Nigeria already have a cordial relationship through football matches, diplomatic and bilateral arrangements, cultural exchanges and in other areas. Beyond these, both governments believe that, music is another way of bringing them more closer together.

Following the endorsement by the two governments, GhanaCelebrities.Com has learnt that, Empire’s office has received numerous calls on daily basis from producers and label owners in other parts of Africa, so as their artistes will get the opportunity to feature on the show, a platform they see spectacular for their artistes.
Despite the pressure mounting, it is the hope that, Bola will still remain focus and won’t defeat from the core aim of the ‘Ghana Meets Naija’ brand, which is to assemble the very best of Ghana and Nigeria musicians on one platform.
The brand itself is a unifier with a sole aim of championing peace and co-existence between the two countries who have become role models to the rest on the continent.
After it’s launched, the general public received the news with mixed feelings concerning artistes billed to perform at the show slated for Saturday June 30 at the Dome of the Conference Centre. The organisers are fired up for the event and the buzz is in town.
The criteria for selection of artistes have also become a major concern for many and have since been discussed on various platforms with varied views. Some have asked why certain artistes didn’t make the cut to be on the show.
The maiden edition took place last year and it was seen as the biggest in-door event in Ghana by industry pundits. The show paraded D-Cryme, Ruff N Smooth, Efya, 4X4, Stay J, VIP, Kwaw Kese and Sarkodie, whiles the Naija brothers paraded J-Martins, 9ice, 2Face Idibia, and Naeto C.
