The UK edition of ‘Ghana Meets Naija’ is set to come off tonight, August 25, 2017, with a show-stopping artist lineup.
The concert, which will be held at the 02 Arena, London, aims at taking Ghanaian and Nigerian music to another level and is expected to attract over 5,000 Ghanaian and Nigerian music fans in the UK and other African nationals.
West African dancehall stars Shatta Wale (Ghana), Stonebwoy (Ghana) and Burna Boy (Nigeria) have been named as headline Acts for the event.
With the combined prowess of Abrantee (UK), Akwaaba (UK), Alordia Promotions (UK), Desire Events (UK) and West Coast Entertainment (UK), the anticipated sell-out-show will feature performances from both foreign and UK-based artistes, a titillating DJ battle and a rave into the early morning hours.
“Many are expectant about ‘Ghana Meets Naija UK’ and industry paddies have put it as the biggest thing to happen on the music scene in UK. It is all about unification and brotherliness within the spirit of having fun with our Nigerian brothers and sisters. We have a lot in common and there is no better way to express that than through a concert,” Bola Ray, CEO of Empire Entertainment – organisers of the concert, said.
