The 2017 edition of the annual Africa Legends Night was, as usual, patronised by the créme de la crime of society, and a selection of performers that left guests dancing and yearning for more. A truly memorable evening, it was compered by seasoned broadcaster Kwame Sefa Kayi, and saw the venue swiftly converted into a big dance floor driven by classic performances from headline act Kanda Bongo Man, singer eShun, and highlife doyens Daddy Lumba, AKA Blay and Amakye Dede. Widely considered a revolutionary of soukous music, the “Kwassa Kwassa” singer was welcomed with resounding cheers which also went on for the entirety of his extensive  and vivacious act. Born Bongo Kanda in Congo, the 62- year- old has published nearly 20 albums, mentored a number of other musicians including Diblo “Machine Gun” Dibala, and still tours in Europe and the United States. There was also a sobering tribute performance for diseased highlife pioneer Paapa Yankson by his son Silas. Other notable African performers to mount the enviable stage in the past have included Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Hugh Masekela, Femi Kuti, Freddy Meiway, Gyedu Blay Ambulley,  Akosua Agyapong, Kpanlogo man Amandzeba Nat Brew, Nana Tuffuor, saxophonist Steve Bedi, and Ben Brako. The Vodafone African Legends Night is put together by Global Media Alliance. See images below: ]]>
