The concert opened with the talent competition winners. The well-composed Ohene Amoako (Tema) set it off with his song ‘So Mu Gyi’, followed by powerful duo NT4 (Kumasi), the free spirited Anas (Takoradi) and the crowd favorite Bryt (Accra) who together with his little brother managed to send the crowd into deafening applause.
After the talent competition, Yaa Pono took to the stage like the boss and he performed hits like ‘Oh Joe’, ‘I Dey Feel You Die’ which featured Faint Medal and ‘Shopping Mall’ and every member of the crowd sang and rapped along.
The sultry songstress Efya left the crowd in awe of her majestic grace and powerful voice singing her hit songs ‘Sexy Wahala’, ‘Little Things’ and ‘Best In Me’ to mention a few. She pleasantly surprised the fans by ending her set by re-inviting Yaa Pono on stage to perform their collaborative song ‘Good Morning’.
The FOKN Bois (M3NSA and Wanlov the Kubolor) sealed the night with an eclectic collection of their music both individually and as a group.
Their performance was as wonderfully engaging as their often controversial lyrics. They got the crowd singing, dancing and laughing as they performed songs like ‘Sometimes’, ‘Thank God We’re Not A Nigerians’ and ‘Ko Ti Eduro’. Energetic Wanlov shocked the crowd by tugging away at his skirt to reveal bright pink panties.
In addition to enjoying free live performances by their favorite musicians, the crowd got the chance to win ‘Big In Ghana’ merchandises as well as souvenirs and drinks from the sponsors.
