Reports available to BEATWAVES indicate that Ghana and Nigeria?s music icons who are billed to perform at the biggest musical event dubbed ?Ghana Meets Naija? which takes place on June 29, at the Accra International Conference Centre, have started serious rehearsals.

Viewed as the concert which brings the best of talents, both internationally and locally, to Accra for an unforgettable night, Ghana Meets Naija, from its record, promises a night of fun, entertainment and vivacity.

Confidently building on the success of last year?s concert with artistes like Samini and a host of others, this year?s will include R2Bees, Edem, Okyeame Kwame, Raquel, E.L., Xo Senavoe, Dr Slim, Dobble among others.

The Nigerian line-up includes Wizkid, Burna Boy and Timaya.

With a slew of awards and chart-topping hits, these artists have been carefully selected to rock the stage, showcasing their talent in performing live on stage. Fans and concert-goers are therefore guaranteed musical artistry at its finest at this Empire initiative.

The event, according to the organisers, Empire Entertainment, would not just be a night of glitz and glamour but something that has never happened in Ghana?s entertainment scene before.

Some of the Nigerian artistes who spoke to BEATWAVES at the launch of the event at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Accra a couple of weeks ago, declared that they were going to give Ghanaian music fans a mind-blowing experience that is unprecedented  in Ghana.

According to them, this year?s ?Ghana Meets Nigeria? is going to be one of the biggest shows, if not the biggest to be staged in Ghana.
BEATWAVES gathered that music fans from Nigeria and some West African countries have already started booking flights to Ghana.

The Chief Executive Officer of Empire Entertainment, organisers of the event, Bola Ray, told BEATWAVES, ?A very big surprise and you can hold me to that. We have the ?Undisputed? man Timaya, who is receiving great reviews all over the continent and doing great stuff.

We are bringing down Wizkid; whose music is doing great in Ghana. We also have some of the hottest stars from Naija as surprise guest artistes on the bill?.

The show is expected to transcend age barriers by drawing in fans of all ages since all the artistes on the bill have a reputation for their ability to keep audience on their feet for hours on end.

The organizers disclosed that the rich experiences of all the artistes, coupled with their uncountable hits, made them the perfect choice for the show.
