Becca takes Girl-Talk higher

Becca takes Girl-Talk higher

It was strictly a “girls girls” night out last Saturday when the auditorium of the National Theatre was turned into a hub of fun and excitement when the annual Becca Girls Talk show came off.

For many young ladies who thronged the venue, it was a total package of music, pep talk and sex education in a night.

Though the show kicked off two hours behind the advertised time of 8:OO pm, Becca and her clique of “sisters”- Nana Ama McBrown, Efya, Mzbel, Tiffany and Akosua Agyapong gave patrons a good moment to savour for the Christmas festivities.

Actress, Nana Ama set the ball rolling with an eclectic performance of Daddy Lumba’s Yentie Obiaa. That might have been the right medicine to soar up the moods of the patrons who had been seated for almost two hours to get on their feet to dance in anticipation of a great evening.

Right after her performance, Becca got on stage with Beyonce’s Who Run the Girls song. Backed by dancers, Becca was later joined on stage by Mzbel and Akosua Agyapong to give a “welcome” dance. Mzbel and Akosua Agypaong also performed a song before bowing off the stage.

Much as many expected it to be a girl’s night out, the rule was broken when Akwaboah, Afriyie and Kwabena Kwabena came in turns to perform with Becca. But perhaps, the relishing moment of their presence on stage was when the three, joined their vocal strengths to sing a rendition of jamaican artiste, Tarrus Riley’s She is Royal with Becca.

Becca was definitely in high spirits on the night. Compared to last year when she disappointed many with a not so good show, this year was definitely a good one for the You Lied to me singer. She got the patrons to sing and dance along as she dished out some of the songs from her repertoire such as No Away, Sugar and Daa ke daa. She used the opportunity to launch her new song, Tell me, which features Sarkodie.

Singer, Efya, was a delight to watch when she sang in her own way, Becca’s African Woman. But it wasn’t just her singing that sent the ladies in the auditorium into a frenzy mood, female rapper, Tiffany, brought her style to bear on stage as well. Clad in a traditional “kete” outfit, the Fake London Boy rapper treated patrons to her invented “Adowazonto”. 

Earlier, Becca had performed Efya’s Little Things. Becca didn’t mince words when she extolled the musical prowess of Efya on stage. She hinted on a “Girls Talk” tour with Efya next year and said the purpose for the introduction of the Becca Talk Show was to create an avenue to women, especially young ladies to take control of themselves and their affairs.

For this reason, she announced that she may not be the headline act for next year’s show since the Becca Talk Show was for women in Ghana and beyond. The mantle, she said, may fall on Efya to “light the flame of women empowerment”.

A surprise performance by music duo, Nacy and Lord of No Tribe, an unexpected proposal to a lady on stage by her boyfriend and sex talk by counsellor, Cyril George Lutterodt, crowned the exciting concert which run into the early hours of Sunday. 

The Becca Talk show closed the curtain on the three days women fair which involved exhibition and seminars on girl issues and products.

Though this year’s show didn’t record huge patronage as compared to previous editions, there is no doubt that it had a better organisation and a much improved artistic and technical output than last year.
