It was notably a memorable time in Dallas Texas, Worcester and New Jersey where patrons eagerly awaited Nii’s coming once it was confirmed. With the finest blend of professional musicians, all assembled from different states in the US including the visting renowned drummer, Francis Osei, Nii gave patrons to a scintillating experience from his catalogue of hit songs that blessed.
