Entertainment of Wednesday, 15 March 2017
The Coronation Park in Sunyani in the Brong-Ahafo Region was electrified last Saturday, March 11 when patrons who attended the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) nominees’ jam danced the night away.
The event, organised by the Charterhouse, brought together Nacee, Bradez, Kofi Kinaata, Ras Kuuku, Mabel Okyere of CJ, Eugene, A.J Lyricx, Afezzi Perry, Cina Soul, eShun and Deon.
The nominees’ jam which was hosted by Amanda Jissih was all fun, as the crowd danced to several hit songs from the various artistes who performed on stage.
Samini who also performed brilliantly succeeded in wowing the crowd at the event.
Backed by the Patch Bay Band, Samini’s one-hour performance on stage could be described as the best on the night.
Ras Kuuku also thrilled the crowd with songs like ‘Show Them Love’, ‘Nwansina’, ‘Bronya’ and a cover version of Sarkodie’s ‘RNS’.
Bradez, MzVee also had a good show, but same cannot be said for Guru, a native of sunyani. He had everyone screaming his name, yet he failed to shine. He was unable to wow the crowd.
Nacee’s performance wouldn’t have been complete without performing ‘Onaapo’, a song which has been a hit since last year’s general elections.
Kofi Kinaata also took the audience to another level when he sang ‘Confession’ ‘Susuka’, ‘Sweetie Pie’ and ‘Oh Azay’.
The unsung artistes, made up of CJ, Eugene, A.J Lyricx, Afezzi Perry, Cina Soul, eShun and Deon, did their own thing on stage.
