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.
