Yes, after a long anticipation, the Stonebwoy BhimNation-Ghana Rocks 2016 concert happened yesterday at the Accra International Conference Centre.
Hosted by YFM’s Ogee and Elia Chebib and with great support from Dj Vyrusky, the event saw performances from DemTinz, DxD, Articcle Wan, Gallaxy, Donzy, Medikal, Ras Kuuku, Trigmatic, Jupitar, Samini, LAX, Eugy official, Kaakie, Rudeboi Ranking, Kofi Kinaata, Saraki….the list is long, you name them.
The auditorium was full to capacity, I’m sure the Charterhouse people sold more and more tickets because the crowd on the night, mehn. The audience were hyperactive, they indeed came to have a blast of their lifetime. Throughout the show, there was never a dull moment, I mean never. Artiste after artiste, made sure they gave off their best to the satisfaction the audience.
Describing what really happened on the night is just something like a beggar’s description for me. I must admit, Stonebwoy’s energy on the night was just something else, his voice, dexterity, his zeal to leave an indelible mark was clearly written all over his face. One could clearly deduced that he was extremely prepared for the show.
Combining live band performance and yes, the DJ coming in at a point is no joke, and artiste after artiste, Stonebwoy was on the stage throughout. It got to a point I was even feeling ‘someway bi’ for his leg, because from 10:30pm thereabout up till the end of the show, Stonebwoy made sure he was on stage with every act, he didn’t leave any act on stage to perform alone, no.
Stonebwoy on the night proved that he’s one of the best live band performers we have in Ghana. On a regular basics, you would attend concerts and see the VVIPs just on their seat throughout the show, but that didn’t happen at Stonebwoy’s concert. Forget the VVIPs, they all stood on their feet. You should have seen D Black on his feet, Micheal Essien, Stephen Appiah, Becca, Beverly Afaglo, you name them, his own musicians were all on their feet. The auditorium was lit to the brim that you one couldn’t even seat.
4bent crew was there to do their own thing when Stonebwoy was performing his Bhimnation song. But Samini on the night was just awesome. You wouldn’t even know he was doing live band. Samini is just good when it comes to live band.
Around 1:56am, Tekno came on stage. He also thrilled the crowd with his Duro song and when the time came for him to do his ‘national anthem’ song, Pana, the ladies took over the job for him, eih, every lady in there wanted to prove that she can really sing Tekno’s Pana song from start to finish.
Stonebwoy’s Ghana Rocks show was just a sight to behold. Sound was top notch, lightning was done in a way that won’t blind your eyes, security was top notch. Oo how else can I describe this show??
Stonebwoy, please let’s do this next year, please…and yes, a very big shouts to the Patch Bay Band, that was a great delivery right there. Awesome show by all standards!
