BUT for the poor organisation of this year’s Sallahfest which took place on the Nima Highway on Wednesday, June 5, (Eid-ul-Fitr), the annual event that brings top GH artistes onto one stage to entertain their fans, would have been one of the best.

It seems the organisers didn’t learn lessons from what happened at the VGMAs because security was very poor with the huge crowd overpowering the police personnel who tried to prevent them from jumping over the barricade mounted between them and the stage.

Also, in between performances, a number of fights broke out among the audience members which distracted the artistes on stage.

The late start of the event also affected the running time of the show as even at midnight, there were still a host of underground artistes still waiting to perform while almost all the A-List acts were seated and ready to perform.

When Hiplife artiste, Kwaw Kese, was called to perform, he had to wait for more than 30 minutes because the underground artistes were on stage doing their own thing.

In spite of the challenges, the eight-hour show saw great performances from the likes of Kuami Eugene, KiDi, Samini, Dope Nation, Kwaw Kese, Edem, Medikal, Kofi Mole, TiC and Wendy Shay.

The event started at 9:30 pm with a lot of underground artistes performing before VVIP which had two members, Zeal and Prodigal present, finally took over the stage. They performed a few of their songs before introducing the other artistes.

Without wasting time, KiDi hit the stage and what an impressive performance he put up. He engaged the audience from the start of his performance until he was done. Singing songs like AdiepenaThunderSay U Love Me and Mr Badman the patrons, especially the ladies, kept screaming his name.

Kuami Eugene followed next with songs like Never Carry LastAngelaWish Me WellWalaahi and Ebeyeyie. His dance moves received applause from the crowd.

Dope Nation and Kofi Mole also thrilled the audience when they hit the stage. Kofi Mole didn’t have to do much as the patrons took over Don’t Be Late song and sang from beginning to end.

I may never collaborate with Tiwa Savage – Yemi Alade

Published

on

Nigerian Afropop singer, Yemi Alade, has said that she might never do a music project with Tiwa Savage, because of the “troubles” from their fans.

In an interview with Ndani TV, Alade said a collaboration might not attract positive reactions from the public.

“All my life when I’m choosing collaborations, it is not based on how I feel. It’s unfortunate that with the feelings and troubles that people keep stirring in our ways, it probably will never allow us to ever have a collaboration. Because you’re not sure the outcome would even be positive or be overrun by negative things and all the fights.

“When we do music, we do it so people can be happy, so when we do a song together, what are we fueling? What are we encouraging? That’s the most important question when I do collaborations, there is an aim. I think what would be would be,” Alade said.

In December 2018, the duo had engaged in a heated war of words on social media, after Alade claimed some female artistes enlarge their buttocks in photos to deceive fans.

Stonebwoy Jabs Media Over Hotel Brouhaha

Published

on

 

 

Stonebwoy has taken a swipe at a section of Ghana’s media over reports that he was kicked out of a hotel in Kenya, where he performed at this year’s Tomorrow’s Leaders Festival in Nairobi on Saturday.

According to the celebrated reggae dancehall artiste, the media is only interested in seeing artistes like him fail.

He is, therefore, considering taking a legal action against the media platforms that reported his alleged hotel brouhaha, something he described as “false.”

This week’s reports from Kenya indicated that this year’s Tomorrow’s Leaders Festival didn’t live to up its billing.

The concert, which had some top African artistes such as Nigeria’s Yemi Alade, Tanzania’s Diamond Platinumz and Ghana’s dancehall artiste Stonebwoy on the bill, was held on Saturday at Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi.

However, things didn’t go as planned, and music fans reportedly left the event grounds in sheer disappointment.

Stonebwoy allegedly got kicked out of his hotel room after the event over non-payment of bills by the organisers.

Kenyan celebrity blogger Xtian Dela‒ who made the Stonebwoy allegation on Twitter‒ also refused to disclose the name of the particular hotel in question, but only added that Nigeria’s Yemi Alade also “got locked up in her hotel room of because of bills.”

The reports were subsequently picked up by Ghana’s media platforms.

“Sometimes I wonder why so much WICKEDNESS in our Country.. FALSE reportage Gives Us So Much JOY!! like I see these Things and I’m pushed to regret Representing For this same Flag. When All they want is TO SEE US FAIL.. anyway the LAW works and we might resort to it,” he tweeted.
