Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

Busta Rhymes storms Accra, Ghana

Busta Rhymes, with a piece of Kente over his shoulders, responds to the calls of his fans.
Busta Rhymes, with a piece of Kente over his shoulders, responds to the calls of his fans.
International hip hop icon, Busta Rhymes, nodded repeatedly Saturday night at the Accra International Conference Centre, left in no doubt his industry and dexterity has affected so many Ghanaian lovers of hip hop.

Taking the stage in a Busta Rhymes Live in Ghana Concert, an initiative of CharterHouse and sponsored by telecoms giant MTN, the ace musician thrilled the crowd with several of his favourite hits, including It's a Party, I Know What You Want, Blessed, Gimme Some More, Make It Clap, Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See, Woo Hah Got You All in Check and Arab Money.

“I love this”, “I made a great decision to come to Ghana” and “I love your beautiful city” were some of his confessions as the overflowing main auditorium of the Conference Centre virtually wrenched lyrics of the over a dozen songs he performed, including the latest and controversial ‘Arab Money,’ from him and rendered it perfectly.

“You will definitely see us again” was his emphatic promise after what he described as “a most wonderful and successful show” that charmed the enthusiastic crowd to abandon their seats and wriggle the night away.

And so powerful was his performance, supported by Spliff Star, that the joyous crowd was almost overflowing onto the stage, barred only by crash barriers thoughtfully planted there for the purpose.

An enchanted fan threw him a piece of kente cloth, which he strapped over his shoulders.

Great performance

The enchanted fans urge closer to stage
Joy FM’s DJs Black and Nii Aryee Tagoe who manned the consoles up stage, and who confessed to being long-time fans of Busta Rhymes, were convinced the show was off the hook. And musician, Okyeame Kwame (Rap Doctor) agreed with them. He told Myjoyonline.com after the show he had seen a vintage performance by a great musician. “And there are a lot of lessons in his entire act. I definitely have picked some to work into my style.”

Ahead of the Busta Rhymes performance, local giants-in-their-own-right, Sarkodie (the rap addict), 4X4, Samini, Okyeame Kwame, and Tic Tac had warmed the house into a zeal. Kwaku T, Prime Stuff and The Brisky Dance were all splendid performers for the night.
