Renowned UK-based Ghanaian Gospel musician Dr Sonnie Badu in partnership with Image Bureau, an events company founded by media mogul George Quaye, on Saturday, December 9, 2023, electrified the Grand Arena of the Accra International Conference Center in Accra with a remarkable gospel musical concert “Rhythms of Africa.”
Offering an overview of the event, the stage setup was undeniably world-class. The harmonious blend of sounds from instruments, vibrant LCDs, and the seamless synergy among backing vocalists created a captivating experience for the audience.
Despite the slated 7 PM start time, the event experienced a delay. Ghanaians and foreigners began streaming in earlier than expected, even while sound checks were still in progress.
The entrance of the Grand Arena was inundated with eager individuals, yearning to experience the performances of musicians set to enchant music lovers with their luscious presentations.
The lineup of musicians that join the UK-based iconic Ghanaian gospel singer in delivering soul-stirring performances includes MOG Music, Piesie Esther, Joe Mettle, Nacee, and Perez Musik from Ghana, as well as Neon Adejo and Preye Odede from Nigeria.
Before the show commenced, Ghana’s finest MC, Nathaniel Attoh, had to apologise to the audience for the late start to the program. Some disappointed fans expressed their displeasure with the delay through vocal outbursts.
In the charged atmosphere, a comforting ministration proved to be a fitting way to compensate for the delay. The perfect vibe was set when contemporary gospel artist, FRA delivered a soul-stirring performance of his hit song, “You dey feel the vibe.”
The mood was just right after his performance, with the crowd continuing to pour in, some finding themselves standing due to the overwhelming attendance.
Periodically, musical performances were momentarily paused to pay tribute to esteemed past gospel musicians by presenting them with plaques of appreciation.
A succession of electrifying and enchanting performances kept the audience in high spirits as artists like Perez Musik, Nacee, Neon Adejo, and Preye Odede enchanted the crowd with gospel tunes. Noteworthy was Preye Odede’s performance, where he became so engrossed that he resisted handing over the microphone when his allotted time concluded.
Commendably, the impeccable chemistry of his band, as it left everyone in awe, almost as if a spell had been cast on the audience.
The event gave an unforgettable experience, providing a spiritual journey by touching souls for the Kingdom of God.
