The music maestro, Kojo Antwi, has a gift for his fans to mark the 20th anniversary of his annual concerts and it is a free show on the Oxford Street at Osu in Accra from 6:00pm on Saturday, December 24.
For 20 years, virtually the whole music-loving community in this nation had looked forward with great expectation to see the adored popular musician perform. Limited seating in the theatres and budgetary constraints had, however, made it impossible for many of his fans to make it to the shows.
Two decades after the first show, the maestro has promised to be on stage for about four hours for free to thank the fans and everyone who had contributed in any way to the success of his annual shows till now. “I have been part of different kinds of free shows but this is the first time I’m organizing one for myself and I want everyone to come and be part of it,” the maestro said in a chat with 'Showbiz'.
He said he would play songs from his very first album through to material from his last one. Fans should therefore expect to hear pieces like Nice and Slow, Me ne Woara, Anokye, Saman, Dadie Anoma, Atentenhuo, Odo Maayea, Bo Me Nkomo De, Akonoba, Mereto Nko, Me Nya Ntaban, Bre Bre Anowaa and more.
“I’ll also do songs from Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder and other popular composers. A lot of people know I used to be in a band called Classic Handels that did all those kinds of songs but I have never really gone back to do them. I guess it’s time now to do a bit of them for the sake of the fans.”
