Dubbed the “Switch Back Concert”, the big bash is being organised by telecom company, Tigo, as part of activities to climax the 15th anniversary celebration of the king of the Ashanti kingdom, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
Over the last year, Shatta Wale has come up as the most popular Ghanaian musician and his songs Dancehall King, Enter The Net, Like My Thing, Shatta City and others have become household names in many parts of the country. All these songs and many others will be performed by the Dancehall King singer on Saturday.
