The organisers of Ghana’s most anticipated concert, Vodafone 020 Live! obviously did not consider the rivalry angle but to place Ghana’s own celebrated rapper, Sarkodie head-to-head with Ludacris, one of the best rap performers in the US, is to unconsciously fuel a who-is-who contest.
Today, Vodafone is scheduled to announce the award winning line up for the third year of 020 Live! Sarkodie, Ludacris, 4x4 and Naeto C will be joined by Vodafone Icons winners, Black n Peach on 29 September at the Dome for a concert that is guaranteed to rock Accra.
According to Vodafone, 020 Live! gets bigger this year with a regional concert in Kumasi by some of the artistes the weekend before the main concert in Accra.
Music fans will be guaranteed a night to remember with performances by three of Africa’s most awarded music artistes and Ludacris, one of the best live performers in the US. Vodafone Ghana Music Awards 2012 (VGMA) winners 4x4 and Sarkodie in the Best Group and Artiste of the Year respectively, are returning to the 020 Live! stage for the second time after they both rocked the stage in the first 020 Live! concert.
Fans of these artistes will see them in a new light as they take to the 020 Live! stage and justify beyond all doubt their status as Africa’s best musicians. Black n Peach will be performing on the 020 Live stage in their first public performance since winning Vodafone Icon.
Uche Ofodile, the Chief Marketing Officer for Vodafone Ghana commented on Vodafone’s approach to 020 Live! this year. ‘We are truly excited about the line-up for this year’s concert. We have gathered in one night and on one stage the best African talent and proven performers to give Ghanaians the concert of a lifetime.
“Sarkodie has been confirmed as a true international act with his latest award as Best International Act at the BET Awards and Ludacris is a fantastic performer – fans are guaranteed to have a blast when he’s on stage. 4x4 have won several awards in Ghana and have thrilled their fans with every one of their performances and Naeto C is a huge act in Nigeria and has proved to have a great presence on stage. We believe that in focusing on four big acts for 020 Live we are taking concerts in Ghana to a new level.”
Sarkodie and 4x4 will work with multi-talented music producer, programmer and instrumentalist, Kwame Yeboah to produce their performance which will see them performing to a live band.
Information on ticket sales for both concerts, organisers say, will be released closer to the concert date.
