Labadi came to a virtual standstill last Sunday January 25 as a star-studded line up of the biggest names on the contemporary Ghanaian music scene came together to thrill fans at the Classic Margarita Beach Carnival held at the La Pleasure Beach in Accra.
The beach carnival, put together by Global Media Alliance and powered by Kasapreko Company Limited drew an overwhelmingly large number of beach party lovers who enjoyed performances by Samini, Stonebwoy, Keche, Guru, Rashid Metal and a host of underground artistes.
The carnival started with performances from underground artiste who set the tone for the show, with the crowd screaming for more at each performance.
Keche were the first major artistes to perform. The duo had the crowd of revelers singing along to their hit song “diabetes” and many of their other hits. One highlight of the night was a surprise performance by Yaa Pono who had the teeming crowd hyped to his music.
Before Stonebwoy mounted the stage, Guru’s “Pooley” and “Lapaz Toyota” kept the crowd excited as he performed hit after hit. Guru was quickly followed by Rashid Metal, the sensational new artiste in the music industry already making waves with his version of the hit song “Baafira”.
Stonebwoy, the Ashaiman bred dancehall superstar sang songs such as Climax, Pull Up, Ghetto Love, Can’t Cool and of course his version of controversial song, “Baafira”, undoubtedly, the crowd’s favourite. Stonebwoy also called on his fans to support Made-In-Ghana products and was grateful to Kasapreko for sponsoring the show to mark the beginning of the year.
Even with all the exciting performances, the crowd had lots of energy to jive along with the “Linda” hit maker, Samini, throughout his performance. Samini also dropped hit song after hit song with a live band and backup singers. He sang both his old songs and current hits with his latest ‘Iskoki’ getting patrons gyrating and singing in unison as he performed. Samini was the entertainer of the night as he engaged the crowd as they sang along with him throughout his stage performance.
