For a show that was sold out days before the main day, the Vodafone African Legends night was beyond expectations as three Ghanaian Legends Kojo Antwi, Daddy Lumba and Samini rocked hundreds of music lovers at the plush Kempinski Hotel on Saturday.
In its 7th Edition, the Vodafone African Legends Night is an event that celebrates great music acts from the soil of the continent. It also creates a platform where these legends have direct encounter with their fans.
Opening the show, the indigenous Ga band, Wulomei took the audience back to their root with great old tunes.
When the Maestro, Mr. Music Man Kojo Antwi climbed on stage, the dancing floor had no space as the music legend thrilled them with his love songs from reggae, highlife and other genre. The music legend performed songs such as Emrika, Music Man, Tom and Jerry, Medofo Pa etc.
Kojo has always yearned for such a platform where he joins his quintessential brother Daddy Lumba on one stage. The last time the two performed together was in London.
Kojo Antwi brought his energy and simply shook the house for over an hour with nonstop music as the crowd sang along.
And Samini stepped up the tempo. Wow! The Reggae Dancehall God, who humbly considers himself as a young legend, was on fire.
He performed hit after hit songs from Linda to Iskoki, Gyae shi, My Own, Where My Baby Dey, to his new tune Obaa.
Samini also played songs of Nana Kwame Ampadu, Bob Marley to pay an ode to them for their contribution to music.
On his 54th birthday on the night of the show, Daddy Lumba gave out something special. He gave the fans the opportunity to sing their favorite Lumba songs backed by himself.
The lover boy was presented with a special cake by the organizers, Global Media Alliance and headline sponsor, Vodafone joined by Former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings.
Ending the show, Lumba thanked Ghanaians for supporting him and Ghanaian Music.
