The 7th edition of Empire’s annual West African concert Ghana Meets Naija was launched yesterday May 2 at uniBank Ghana’s Kokomemle offices.
Among performers for this year’s edition are Shatta Wale and M.anifest for Ghana, while Davido ,”Bahd Guy” Falz, and MAVIN diva Tiwa Savage represent the Green-White-Green. Here’s the full speech by Crystal Banda, P.R.O for Empire:
We are in our 7th year. Ghana meets Naija keeps getting better and better. This year, the battle is on. The question remains; who will conquer, command and control this year’s edition of Ghana meets Naija?
This year’s edition rides on a concept synonymous with the just ended elections. Last year candidates of the various political parties were vying for the Presidential seat thus borrowing from that idea, we at EMPIRE are asking with this struggle for musical power, which Artist gets to sit on the Seat of Power?
On the night, Nii Ayi Tagoe would be doubling as a Dj and the speaker of parliament (MC); Vyrusky being the co-DJ together with last year’s battle of the dj segment winner K Krack.
Then of course our battle DJs: All the way from Nigeria DJ Obi – the first African to break the world record for the longest DJ set and has managed to have his name in the Guinness Book of Records up against our very own DJ Lord from Live FM
For the 5th time running, the King of dancehall Shatta Wale would be battling it out for the seat and he is up against the likes of M.anifest, 3rd time act on Ghana meets Naija Davido and Falz. On the night would be another surprise performance from the Queen herself Tiwa Savage.
So the power is in your hands to vote for your favourite artist to SIT ON THE THRONE.
