Takoradi fans defy rain for ‘Slide & Bounce’ show

The rain came intermittently but thousands of music fans in Takoradi  could not be bothered last Saturday as they endured the bad weather  at the Jubilee Park to catch some of their favourite music stars at the final show of the Glo Slide & Bounce tour.

Nigerian artistes Wande Coal and Naeto C, alongside  Ghanaian crowd-pullers- Edem, Paapa Yankson, Asem and Irene Logan- dished  out lovely songs  that kept the thousands of revelers and fans firmly rooted at the jam-packed Jubilee Park .

 They obviously  preferred to stay wet than to miss any act of the catchy, non-stop stuff flowing their way.  They dared the rains by singing along, dancing and yelling out for more  from the stars. Eventually, it was the rains that gave way.

Nigerian comedian, Gbenga Adeyinka set the tone for the  night  which Glo officials have described as the most ‘explosive’ of all three Slide & Bounce concerts.

Hours before the musicians stormed the stage in turns, Adeyinka, partnered top deejay, DJ Black to charm the teeming fans with doses of his trademark wit and pranks. He then went on to engage the crowd with a series of spontaneous dancing and miming competitions that rewarded winners with various gifts.

Reggie Rockstone, the other compere for the show,  caused quite a stir with  a sneak cut of his own  Plan Ben hit song.  The crowd wanted him to stay but they were still happy when he introduced  Edem, an artiste  reported to have been at the top of Takoradi’s list of most wanted stars for some time now.

A cross- section of attendees commended Glo Mobile Ghana for organising the Slide & Bounce concert in the Western Region and not concentrating only  on Accra and Kumasi.

“We haven’t had such good live music from great stars like these  in a very long time. That explains why  the whole metropolis virtually  emptied into the Jubilee Park. Trust me, we are overjoyed,” said Fred Hammond, a student  of Takoradi Polytechnic.

 Akeem Kazeem, the Head of Business at Glo Mobile Ghana thanked music fans  for their overwhelming patronage of the Slide & Bounce concerts in  Kumasi, Accra and Takoradi.

“Takoradi’s massive turn- out  confirmed  the popular saying in Ghana that the best comes from the West,”  Kazeem added.

He assured Glo subscribers  of sustained good  services, pocket-friendly rates and more activations in the coming months.

The Glo Slide & Bounce concerts  were organized by Glo Mobile Ghana to thank subscribers for their loyalty over the past 18 months that it started operations. The concerts featured  several  top-rated artistes from Ghana and Nigeria  including the world-acclaimed  P Square.
