The ‘Get Busted’ concert came off with a bang at the Accra International Conference Centre last week Saturday, as Kweku T & D Black, 4x4, filled out a roster that also included Okyeame Kwame, Tic Tac, 4x4, Samini, Sarkodie and headliner Busta Rhymes.
Kweku T & D Black were one of the first big names to hit the stage, they tantalized the crowd with ‘Breathe ’, ‘Move’, and “Bust Your Brain” featuring J Sleek which was new to the audience who couldn’t groove along to it. View Photos from Busta Rhymes Live in Ghana.
Later on 4x4 took the stage with their swagger-filled brand of “African music”. They impressed the audience with their short performance. The ladies danced along to “Fresh Ones” and “World Trade Center”.
Okyeame Kwame alongside DJ Andy Dosty also managed to get soft love from the spectators with his hits such as "Medo Mbaa", and Anaa. Kwame’s finale was "Woso".
To make it short Samini had a bad day electrifying the stage as Tic Tac gave a good impression of himself that he is the Busta Rhymes of Ghana.
However, Sarkodie whose new album “Makye” meaning I have been underground for long was the star of the night. The crowd sang and danced along to songs such as "Borga," "Push" and "Baby".
With his high speed, torrential delivery, Sarkodie has steadily risen from free styling artiste to a real selling artist. Known for his tongue-twisting, virtuoso delivery, Sarkodie who spotted a yellow t-shirt with inscription “I’m A Rap Addict” had everyone in the hall waving their hands in air and screaming “Check my flow”.
The fans had gathered in front of the stage before Busta came on stage which was sponsored the leading telecommunication service in Ghana, MTN.
"Let me hear you make some noise, Flip Mode in the building baby," the General. "The legendary Spliff Starr and yours truly Busta Rhymes”, were the words that came out from Busta Rhymes back stage over the late Notorious BIG, ‘Victory’ beat.
Once he showed up, the audience roared with screams and loud shouts.
Sarkodie was a tough act, but the mighty Busta Rhymes kept fans on their feet with featured hits like “Make It Clap”, “Gimme Some More” "Touch It," "Baby If You Give It To Me,", “What It Is” "Arab Money" and many others. Each song was performed with so much energy that you would have sworn it was Busta's last-ever concert in the world.
The multi-platinum artist sought to verify the title of his latest album to which everyone screamed “Back On My Bullshit” and did “Hustler's Anthem” featuring T Pain and “Decision” featuring Jamie Foxx, John Legend, Mary J. Blige and Common.
Dressed in a black t-shirt laced with diamonds, Busta Rhymes mesmerized the audience with some of his most popular songs in the last 90s including “Woo Hah!! Got You All in Check”, “Dangerous” and "Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See”, during his two hour-long set under multicolored lights on the stage.
Arnold, who is also the editor of Weekly Fylla newspaper, said there more hits Busta Rhymes has to perform for us tonight.
Fans waved their hands in the air, jumped up and down, and sang along. A few attempted to crowd-surf, though they were not very successful.
“This is what we call creativity in performance, Spliff Starr and Busta Rhymes are a good team", said hiplife artiste, Castro.
"Pass the Courvoisier" ended the show, with Bus giving thanks to all the people who made the show successful while Spliff Star showered people on the side of the stage.
Despite the delay start of the show and poor attendance, multiplatinum artiste, Busta Rhymes and Kernel Spliff Starr overrode that adversity.
Ghana Music.com has endorsed this concert as the best ever show by an international hiphop artiste in Ghana.
