Now imagine having all these revered acts on one stage? That’s what happened at this season of Somewhere In Ghana.

When budding and skilled Kyei Nwom jumped on stage as the opening act, the dancing floor had no space as he thrilled them with his love songs from lovers rock, highlife and other genre. He electrified the venue with his mid-tempo songs such as Damebi, Agatha, Akonoba etc.
Kyei Nwom also played songs of Nana Kwame Ampadu, Amakye Dede to pay an ode to them for their contribution to music.
Ladies milk, Deon Boakye took over with his silky voice bringing meaning to the celebration of love with his touchy-feely performance. He soothed hearts with his lyrically genius songs like Okyena, Gone, Heart Break etc.
Kumi Guitar was awesome, without his guitar but of course, his performance would not have been complete without unraveling relationship issues and encouraging men with his ‘betweener’ song.
His communication with audiences was captivating, displaying breathtaking skills in singing and dancing. Never for once did he falter in his steps, his stagecraft or did his voice lose the energy he came with. That man has one hell of a talent!
And Dead Peepol stepped up the tempo. Wow! The Reggae juggernauts, who humbly considers themselves as a young legends, were on fire.
They fueled audiences with a ragga atmosphere, performing their latest banger ‘Otan Hunu’ and other hits from inception of their career.
Astonished by the act, the audience screamed, stood on their chairs, pulled out their phones to capture the moment CJ Biggerman hopped on stage to deliver what he does best.
Symptomatic of him, the bright spark rapper announced his presence on stage with one of his artistry freestyles. Of course, he didn’t disappoint the teeming fans who jammed to all his tunes back to back and joining him in a frenzy of singing as they enjoyed the energy of the ‘Chuku Chuku’ hit maker on the stage.
He has always yearned for such a platform where he joins his quintessential brothers on one stage.
In a joint performance, Wanlov The Kubor and his junior brother, AY Poyoo mounted the stage with fire and consistent jokes throughout their stagecraft. They were lively and their attitude on stage were extremely excellent.
The self-acclaimed face of GH Rap, AY Poyoo never failed to impress a section of the music fans who witnessed his first live performance, though, he did his best.
He lit the night as he performed his hit songs ‘I’m a goat’ and ‘Washout Africa’.
Another exciting moment was when the comic rappers performed their songs ‘Alcoholics’ and ‘My Toto’ together.
It was a night of music and comedy and fans undoubtedly had nothing but pure fun.
Ending the show, Poyoo thanked Ghanaians for supporting him and Ghanaian Music.
