This year?s show, like?the previous ones, sought?to continue its efforts to?chart a pathway in promoting?authentic highlife?music in Ghana.

Severally described as?the life source of highlife?music in Ghana, MOGO, an annual event organised?on Farmers Day, is a renaissance
of Ghanaian musical?heritage and seeks to?track Ghanaian music in transition.

The concert featured?highlife music legend,?Nana Kwame Ampadu, Okyeame Kwame,?Akwaboah Jnr and the?Ramblers International?Band.

Indeed, Nana Kwame?Ampadu, whose contribution?to authentic Ghanaian
music over the decades,?virtually sparked the excited?music fans into frenzy?when he took the stage and?treated patrons to an?unforgettable performance.

He proved his critics?wrong when he made a?historic comeback to the?musical stage at the Alisa?Hotel after years of a long?break from the highlife?music scene.

Nana Kwame Ampadu,?who used the MOGO?dance party to relaunch
himself, held expectant?fans spellbound with over?50-minute energetic performance?of songs from his?old albums.

Akwaboah Jnr who also?took over from Nana?Ampadu threw all his?skills onto the stage as he?performed creditably.

Known for delivering?mid-tempo songs that?always bring out the best?in him, Akwaboah possibly?challenged himself at the?show when he sang most?of his popular hit-songs.

Okyeame Kwame, who?also won the hearts of?many music lovers with an?unforgettable performance,?treated the excited fans to?some serious dance moves?on stage.

He did demonstrate his?stagecraft, singing and?dancing skills, which left?no doubt in anyone?s mind?that he is truly a force to?reckon with.
