One of Africa’s biggest music exports and the world’s most celebrated jazz artistes, ace trumpeter, and musical legend, Hugh Masekela brings a double entertainment package to Ghana this weekend from November 18- 19.

On November 18, the South African superstar will host a red carpet premiere of his movie, “Soil”, at the Silverbird cinemas. The movie stars local actors including Ken Fiati, Solomon Sampa, Asuman Davis and Baaba Akude, to name a few. It tells the story of a son of a chief, who after being banished from his village, is asked to return as his dying father’s last wish. However, complications arise upon his return. The movie delivers a true on-screen African experience. ‘SOIL’ was produced by Elinam Masekela, was written and directed by, Adam Wilkinson. It boasts of a colourful soundtrack done by Hugh and Ghanaian Highlife icon, Pat Thomas.

On November 19, at the Banquet hall of the state house, the jazz legend will grace the stage with a performance like no other. The night will see the maestro in action, alongside some renowned Ghanaian artistes. King of Burger High life, George Darko, High life veteran Pat Thomas, and the sultry songstress Efya, will also be on hand to light up the evening.

Mr. Edward Boateng, the Executive Chairman of Global Media Alliance, stated “as a leading event and media company, we pride ourselves in bringing quality entertainment to the people of Ghana and indeed Africa. The caliber of artistes lined up for this event represents the kind of variety that we bring on board suitable for all generations.”

Christened Hugh Ramopolo Masekela, the jazz prodigy has built a music career spanning 58 years, and has a large number of albums to his credit. He was part of the first African jazz group with an LP (Long-Playing) and has performed to record-breaking audiences across the world. His favourite hits include “Grazin’ in the grass” which sold four million copies; and his famous hit single “Bring him back home”, which became an anthem for the movement to free Nelson Mandela.

The  event is well be hosted by Hugh Masekela  in conjunction with Kasapreko Company Limited and Global Media Alliance and sponsored by Alomo Bitters,  Silverbird Cinemas and Mirage Royal Hotel.
