One of the main acts for this year’s Ghana Meets Naija concert, Wizkid, made history on Saturday when he performed to some 20,000 people at The 02 Arena, London, which has also hosted the likes of Miley Cyrus, and Katy Perry in the past. The historic feat happened months after he sold out the Royal Albert Hall, also in London.
Dubbed Afrorepublik, it also hosted other mainstream acts including Mr Eazi, who is on this year’s Ghana Meets Naija bill. Over 5000 people are expected to attend the June 9 event at the Fantasy Dome, Trade Fair, La, Accra.
Dubbed the “Rescue Mission”, this year’s Ghana Meets Naija will witness performances from Stonebwoy, who is famed for his outstanding live gigs, KiDi, Kuami Eugene, King Promise, Patapaa, Fancy Gadam, and Mayorkun, organisers say. Some more acts have since joined the lineup.
