African Legends Night on Sept. 30

Yvonne ChakaChaka

This year’s African Legends Night concert comes off at the Banquent hall of the State House on September 30.

The sixth in the series, this year’s event is special. It perfectly ties into the marking of Ghana’s 60th independence anniversary celebrations.

African Legends Night has played host to great music icons from Ghana as well as other African nations and has over the years carved an event niche catered to people who have a soft spot for African music.

Past editions have featured Ivorian Freddy Meiway, South Africa’s Yvonne Chaka Chaka. Hugh Masekela, Nigeria's Femi Kuti, George Darko, Amakye Dede, Ben Brako, Steve Bedi and many others.

Speaking in an interview with Showbiz, Ms Emma Wenani, Director at Global Media Alliance(GMA), organisers of the event said the artistes for this year’s concert have been kept as a surprise to whet the appetite of patrons.

“We will unveil the artiste on bill in a couple of days but for now we want to keep it as secret” she said

She added that "We believe in African talent, and music forms a key part. It is for this reason that we at GMA celebrate the originality and rhythms from the continent with authentic music.

“ With African Legends Night we honour musicians who have put Africa’s rich culture and heritage in the global space,” she added.
