Wizkid, makes a grand return to the prestigious stage, after his momentous 2013 appearance. “Mama” hitmaker, Mayorkun, and Mr Eazi constitute the continent representing the green -white- green. Ghanaian acts include Stonebwoy, who is famed for his outstanding live performances, new kings KiDi, Kuami Eugene, King Promise, Patapaa, and Fancy Gadam, as well as Uptown Energy frontman Yaa Pono.

Empire Ghana, organizers have announced that tickets are out at major physical outlets, and are selling for 120, 200 and 300 cedis.

The 8th Ghana Meets Naija at the spacious FANTASY DOME, Trade Fair, La, Accra, is an answer to the call for a bigger event venue. The facility boasts state-of-the-art facilities and has already hosted a number of high-profile events.

The annual event has constantly proven a sought-after platform. It is therefore no wonder that, soon after the launch, rapper Yaa Pono, who is billed to represent the Ghana side of matters, started the ceremonial “big talk”.

Usually overbooked, the concert has previously been mounted by Shatta Wale, Sarkodie, Falz, Tiwa Savage, Davido, Naeto C, R2Bees and a host of others.

Over 5000 people are expected to attend the event.
