Tamale rapper Sherif Abdul-Majeed ( known in showbiz as Maccasio) is set to stage his unprecedented Northern Xplosion at the Accra Sports Stadium come February 25th.
Ahead of the concert, he paid a courtesy call on EIB boss and ace broadcaster Bola Ray yesterday to discuss the concert, Northern music, as well as possible upcoming collaborations. The meeting came off at Platinum Heights in Accra –headquarters of the EIB Group.
A Zola Music/ 69 Entertainment partnership, the Northern Xplosion Concert will see the Too Big rapper mount his first major stage in Accra, treating his many fans to the many anthems he has created over the years.Recently signing to beverage dealers Giant Malt, Maccasio has also collaborated on projects with sought-after mainstream acts including Kofi Kinaata, Zeal (VVIP), and dancehall star Shatta Wale. Obviously an audacious choice of venue, the rapper appears unintimidated, as he will be in brilliant company consisting Iwan, Guru, Fareed, Rudebwoy Ranking, Bastero, Dr Cryme, Sherifa Gunu, Gaffachi, Morgan, Flawa, S K Y, Arisky, Dahin Sheli, Naa Body????, as well as likely appearances from Shatta Wale and Wiyaala.
Pulled off correctly, this will bring him even closer to attaining recognition at this year’s edition of the prestigious VGMA awards slated for coming months. The show starts at 7 pm.
