Resounding fireworks filled up the sky for several minutes as patrons at the Junction Mall (Nungua) counted down the final hours of 2016 at Tigo Ghana’s ongoing Festival of Lights and Music.
Jamming to praise anthems by veteran gospel songstress Obaapa Gifty, the crowd was full of praise to God almighty for seeing them successfully into a new year with new prospects.
An overwhelmed Shatta Wale couldn’t hold back tears as he watched viral videos by Moses before presenting him with keys to the vehicle as part of his Shatta Honours initiative.
Other prizes as educational materials, iPhones and laptops were given to other fans who have been supportive to Shatta on social media, including Abena Jamaica, Bilal Larry, little Shatta Berry, and Nikita.
Before giving out the gifts, he served an extended list of hits he has amassed over the past few years including Cocoa Season, Talk Talk, Hol It, Kakai, Obodobidi, Bie Gya, If I Collect, and Kpuu Kpaa, and was also joined onstage by Pope Skinny and Duke (formerly of D2).
He also expressed gratitude to his fans for their overwhelming support for him thus far, bemoaning what a terrible position Ghana’s music industry can place an artist.
Hosted by Starr FM’s Giovani Caleb with music from DJ Vyrusky, the show also witnessed performances from spoken-word act Zerben, the Patch Bay Band, and Cwesi Oteng, and inspirational singer Obaapa Christy.
