It was a good night of music and great performances last Saturday at the Liberty Park in Dansoman when the maiden edition of the Pay Back concert came off.

Even though some of the artistes billed to perform were absent, the likes of Samini, Episode, Ex-Doe, Sonni Balli and new sensation Rashid Metal thrilled the audience to great performances at the venue.

The show kicked off at 8 p.m. when the Master of Ceremonies (MC), Disc Jockey (DJ) Adviser, introduced Ghana’s representative at the Big Brother Africa, Kacey Moore, as the first act on the night. The mention of his name didn’t attract much applause from the audience but still, he managed to get some few patrons to dance to his songs when he came on stage.

His act was followed by performances from Lil Shaker and Gemini and they had a good reception from the fans.

But it was hiplife artiste Ex-Doe who sent the place into a frenzy when he came on stage to perform some of his good old songs like Maba, Daavi, Mede Kuku, Gogo Wo Ho and Comfort.

The loud cheers that greeted his performance was evidence that Ex-Doe still knew well his stock of trade after taking a break from the industry for some time.

Dancehall artiste, Episode, was one of the best performers on the night when he played with a live band. He thrilled the crowd with his energetic stage presence and got the fans to scream for more when he bowed out after more than an hour on stage.

Linda hitmaker, Samini, was in his elements. He proved on stage why he is still regarded as a force to reckon with after a decade on the scene.

And as expected, he performed many songs from his repertoire such as Linda, Iskoki, Scatter Mind and Zongozerr.

Performances from London-based Dancehall act, Sonni Balli and reggae artiste, Knii Lantey, closed the eventful show.

The Pay Back Concert was organised by Accra based radio station, YFM, and supported by Kasapreko.
