The maiden edition of the ‘Ghana Meets Naija’ musical concert was last year introduced to celebrate and unite musicians in Ghana and Nigeria. The brand is growing with exciting packages and it is swiftly becoming a force to reckon with.
The idea was conceived and birthed by MC extraordinaire, Bola Ray, nurtured by his Empire Entertainment crew to bring the two West African countries together on one stage in the musical realm.
The brand itself is a unifier with a sole aim of championing peace and co-existence between the two countries who have become role models to the rest on the continent.
Ghana Meets Naija in its second season is perhaps the first and the biggest concert on the African continent where the very best of artistes with smashing hits from the two countries are assembled on one platform to entertain thousands of music enthusiasts.
The first edition took place last year on Republic Day, 1st July in Ghana’s capital; Accra, inside the Dome of the International Conference Centre with a packed but gentle crowd, thunderous and everlasting performances coupled with mind boggling stage crafts from various top artistes.
