The 2016 edition of the much anticpated Ghana’s annual music face-off event tagged ‘Tigo GhanaMeets Naija’ has finally held.
The event sees a number of a-list musicians from Ghana and Nigeria going off against each other and showcasing their amazing talent and musical prowess, it was the entire Mavin Records crew that represented Nigeria in the last edition but this latest edition had Flavour, Harrysong and Olamide reprsenting Naija.
The event which held at the Accra International Conference Center, saw winning the heart of the audience, until Flavour was pitted against Shatta Wale.
It can be recalled that Flavour had bragged confidently about beating the Ghanaian singer.
“I hope he [ Shatta Wale] is ready, he should bring it on…I have seen him perform and I know he has lots of energy but I will be ‘flavouring’ everywhere,” the ‘Ada Ada’ crooner had said in an interview, adding, “I have played and performed with my band and we have had lots of rehearsals as to how to get the people dancing and I have been working on my dance moves too”.
At the event, Flavourw as the last act of the night, a tragedy many people would later agree, because after Shatta Wale was done with his as usual electrifying performance, the audience began to pack up, leaving Flavour with only a measly, kind crowd. Flavour, sadly, lost.
However, Nigeria still emerged the winner, and it’s all thanks to Harrysong who beat Ghana’s Pappy Kojo during the first round, and Olamide who won the heart of Ghana in the second round, beating rapper EL.
