Call it the ‘Clash of the Titans” when Ghana’s Shatta Wale face it off with Nigeria’s at the annual Ghana Meets Naija concert which comes off on May 27 at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC).
Arguably Shatta Wale is one of the best musicians Ghana can currently boast of and with his songs Ayoo and Taking Over on the lips of many Ghanaians, one should expect nothing but the best from the self-acclaim Dancehall King.
On the other hand, Davido’s If is no doubt one of the biggest song trending at the moment and Davido having a huge fan base in Ghana.
It is really going to be difficult to predict if the night will go for Shatta Wale or Davido because both artistes are good in their own ways.
Other artistes on the Ghanaian side who will mount the stag on the night include Sarkodie and other surprise acts. Tekno of Pana fame will also rep for Naija.
In its 7th year, the Ghana Meets Naija concert is the biggest concert in the region that brings artistes from the two countries together.
The concert sees Ghanaian acts pitched against their Nigerian counterparts to determine who has the upper hand in the music industry.
It has over the years hosted the likes of Wizkid, The Mavins crew headed by Don Jazzy, Tiwa Savage, Sarkodie and Shatta Wale among a tall list of A-List acts.
This year’s event has uniBank as headline sponsor.
