The second edition of the Made in Taadi concert spearheaded by Kofi Kinaata went down live on December 22 at the Jubilee Park in Takoradi.
Several artistes like Sarkodie, Nero X, Donzy, Keche, Pappy Kojo, Joey B and a host of others were on hand to thrill the audience with good music and amazing stagecraft that will forever linger in their minds forever.
So how did it go? Let’s us start off with Sarkodie-the multiple award winning artiste was on fire from the very moment he came up on stage right to the point he left. No one should argue when we say he’s Ghana’s biggest artiste; he proved it on the night.
Edem aka Special Delivery couldn’t deliver on this special night as he flopped woefully. Perhaps he’s not too popular in Takoradi so he couldn’t establish a good rapport with the audience, more reason why he hurriedly left the stage.
Keche brought their A-game on all the way from Tema to Taadi and the crowd went over the moon with their performance. This largely hinged on the fact that the duo have lot of ‘asokpor’ music and that’s exactly what the crowd loved.
Pappy Kojo did not flow very well with is performance and his blend with his buddy Joey B did yield any positive result either. The Yi wo dross man could have done better tho.
Casta Troy lived up to the hype which has shrouded his persona lately as one of the fastest rising Hip-hop/Hip-life artiste in the country. His performance was just spot on and the delivery was on a different level.
Donzy is a good pal of Kofi Kinaata and he surely gave him a befitting performance worthy of a close friend. Ghanaians should stop underrating that young man because he’s very good.
And to the man himself, Kofi Kinaata! He did so well and it’s no wonder he’s currently Western Region’s best music act at the moment. It was really a sight to behold watching him ‘kill’ the crowd with a superlative performance.
The MCs for the evening, Yoofi Eyeson, Too Much of Junka Town Dr. Pounds and PM did marvelously well to treat the charged crowd with doses of their versatility.
On the downside, the organizers should check some security lapses that reared its ugly head. The security men available were just few and therefore couldn’t handle the overwhelming crowd, some of whom forcibly tried to come up on stage.
The commencement and finishing time should also be checked next time because this ‘Ghanaian disease’ relative to time is becoming a canker now. In addition, a bigger venue should be used next time because the crowd was just too much.
We understand Kofi Kinaata financed the whole show single-handedly which is obviously overbearing so we’ll like to use this opportunity to appeal to cooperate Ghana to aid the young man reach his potential.
