The 2019 edition of the much anticipated “Ghana Meets Naija” was held yesterday at the Accra International Conference Center.
Representing Ghana at the ninth edition, was Patapaa’s spectacular and outstanding delivery which will forever be stuck in the minds of the audience who were present at the AICC yesterday.

Patapaa participated as a Ghanaian football player wearing the number 9 jersey. He posed as a “Musical Black Stars of Ghana’ striker who was down with an injury by his Nigerian opponents.
In the brief skit, Patapaa, after being treated by the medical team, rose with much more energy, poised to save Ghana in the ‘tournament’ with Ghana’s “God Bless Our Homeland” anthem playing in the background.
Ghanaian “twi” reggae dancehall sensational Ras Kuuku also pulled a fiery performance on the night with his great style of thrilling.
Fameye served patrons with acoustic version of his hit “Addiction and Nothing I get” song. The mouth watering performance that seemed to appeal to get almost all the ladies on their feet started with his guitar and calm appearance, catching the attention of many.
Leading the “Musical Black Stars” of Ghana was the R2Bees but unfortunately timing made their stage performance very dispiriting leaving patrons and Ghanaians crown Patapaa the “King” for the 2019 edition Ghana Meets Naija concert.
The “Musical Super Eagle” of Nigeria represented in style as well; Wande Coal, the “So Mi So” hitmaker, “Wey Tin We Gain” singer Victor AD, as well as BET nominee Teni.
The night saw performances from Nigeria’s Victor AD, Teni, Wande Coal as well as Ghana’s R2bees, Patapaa, Tulenkey, Dadie Opanka, Quamina MP, Edem, Kwaw Kese, Keche and many others.
Over the years, Ghana Meets Naija has been known as the platform for the biggest artistes in both Ghana and Nigeria to share one stage and thrill music lovers.
From his opening act to when he bowed out, there was no dull moment – unlike Wande Coal who right from the word ‘go’ was timid and appeared unprepared for the night; Victor AD who was wandering on stage as if nothing was at stake; R2bees and Teni who delivered an average performance.
Apart from the spectacular performances by Patapaa and Medikal, DJ Vyrusky who was the official DJ proved why he is the reigning Best DJ in Ghana. He was phenomenal on the turntables while DJ BigN from Nigeria was disappointing.
From all indications, BigN had a ‘wrong’ playlist as it did not resonate with the audience.
The ninth edition of the Ghana Meets Naija also saw performances from Tulenkey, Quamina MP, Edem, Kwaw Kese, Keche and many others.
Like several events organised in Ghana, it started late – about two hours behind schedule – and ended at 3.30am.
