Usher promises a main event in Ghana after ‘warmup’ session; spotted in a heated ‘Jama’ with DWP Academy dancers

Following an energetic and historic delivery by Usher Raymond & the DWP Academy at the Global Citizen Festival, they were captured singing ‘Jama’ songs & the superstar has promised to return.

What the dancers started as a normal ‘jama’ chant, invited the Hollywood A-Lister to join the group to mime the song as though he knew what they were singing about.

At a point, they stopped singing but were motivated by Usher to continue singing while some of them took turns hugging the artiste.

Usher arrived in Ghana last week with SZA to perform at the Global Citizen Festival.

On September 24, 2022, the show came off with tens of thousands of people in attendance at the Black Star Square.

With two stages in New York City’s Central Park and the Black Star Square in Accra, Ghana, fans who attended the events said they had not seen anything like it before.

Artistes who were billed to perform aside from Usher and SZA were Stormzy, Sarkodie, Gyakie, and Stonebwoy among others.

Furthermore, the American RnB superstar has given his word that he will return to Ghana because his 2022 Global Citizen Festival performance at the Black Star Square in Accra was just a warmup.

He said this to TV personality Berla Mundi during a meet-and-greet organised on Sunday, 25 September, 2022, for him, a day after his sterling performance.

“By the way, it was so hard to pick the songs,” he first divulged to Ms Mundi as they conversed as seen by Class News’ Prince Benjamin in an Instagram video posted by the handle @berlamundi.

“And then, by the way, we made a change right before the show started to try and add more things,” Usher elaborated.

“This was just a warm up,” he added before assuring, “I’ll come back, of course.”

“I’m gonna manage to create some things…” he went on.

As a headliner for the tenth Global Citizen Festival which took place in Accra, Ghana, and simultaneously in New York City, USA, Usher started his set with his ‘Caught Up’ hit.

During his near-hour singing and dance set, he invited on stage Nigerian stars Oxlade, Tiwa Savage and Pheelz to also entertain the crowd with their hits.

The climax was when he was joined by dancers from the biggest urban dance school in Ghana called Dance With A Purpose Academy, alias DWPAcademy, to put up an electrifying performance.

They ended the dance session with the shot below before exiting the stage.
