Stonebwoy, who rocked for over 30 minutes, charmed fans with his creative skills, stagecraft and style of performance, apart from exhibiting his usual vocal ability and dance skills and got the entire fans singing along.

When it got to the turn of one of Ghana?s Dancehall artistes, Shatta Wale, not only did he rock the stage with his hit tracks, but his stagecraft was exceptionally good.

His delivery was extraordinary as fans stood on their feet dancing to show appreciation.

Shatta, who was consistent and able to control the crowd, performed creditably to the satisfaction of all music fans present at the event.

The performance by Shatta Wale, which lasted about 30 minutes, truly lived up to the hype. He kept the fans on their feet, singing and dancing along from start to finish.

Guru?s presence was also felt. He stormed the stage with so much energy, eventually passing on some to the crowd, which screamed and sang along to all the songs he performed.
