The concert that was expected to have an eclectic collection of popular Ghanaian faces of the hip-hop music scene came off with Rick Ross rather performing very early, taking the stage before 8pm.
Rick Ross, born William Leonard Roberts II emerged on stage with his 15 man crew and was greeted with the loudest cheers from the crowd.
Fantasy Entertainment is rumoured to have paid Rick Ross $170, 000. It wouldn't have changed anything, if they announced that Rick Ross was catching an early flight to South Africa just to avoid the angry crowd.
Tickets prices were 75Ghc for Regular Tickets , 105 Ghc for V. I. P and 150 Ghc for V.V.I. P.
Rick Ross tackled songs from his old albums to the current ones of his platinum-selling album, “Teflon Don” album throughout the 60 minutes he was on stage.
The moment the beat of 'BMF' was dropped, the whole auditorium started rapping along “I think I'm big meech Larry Hoover//, whipping work, hallelujah,one nation under god, real niggas getting money from the fucking start".
The new Ghanaian rendition of Rick Ross BMF (Blow Money Fast) goes like “I think am big meat, ma chi mu mugu...Ghanaians, conference centre..... hallelujah fada Christmas. Performing Veri Fast (PVF= BMF).
The show opened around 6pm with J-Town's performance followed by label mate EL dishing out good GH hiphop music.
Kwaw Kese stayed true to his words and came down from USA purposely for the Rick Ross concert and was right up next after Rick Ross left stage.
Tiffany does her best to kindle the energy of the crowd; a daunting task for the only female act on the bill. She was later joined by Sarkodie to do the remix of "Fake London".
Coming from UK and label mate of Sarkodie and Akon, Sway's performance on stage was so good that he had the crowd shouting along with him. His fans helped out on party favorites like "F Ur Ex," "Intoxicated” and more. You could feel the bass deep down in your chest and rattling heads when he took it to the UK level with his 'grimey' songs.
Trigmatic seemed to be having fun and shared that joy of performing with the audience, who were on their feet the entire time and sang along with him.
D-Black rolled out next on stage with an intro boasting about his 15 music nominations. His performance was accompanied by Dr. Cryme and his young hype boy, Dee-Money.
Tinny "Aletse" was next on stage and delivered a humble and heartfelt acknowledgment to his fans present. During his performance, DJ-Black, the official DJ and MC for the nite signaled him to cut his performance.
“DJ Black is signalling me to go oooh, Rick Ross has come to do his own and go so now you guys need to chill with me”, he said. And true to his words he left his fans just like that as they yearned for more.
Asem took the stage next after a short intermission. Asem’s performance was centered around creating this jokes from his songs. “2011 Fylla. "Rick Ross come perform early and go”, were some of his new lines. The fine boy rapper clanked out a dozen crowd-pleasing hits that had the house on its feet for most of his time on stage.
There were so many things that will always make Charter House be the leaders of event organising in Ghana. Things that amounted to them was poor publicity, bad security, not willing to release all the 'charged fees' to the local artistes before they mounted the stage and more.
