This year’s edition of West Africa’s biggest musical concert dubbed ‘Ghana Meets Naija’ will take place at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) on Saturday, June 9, organisers have announced.
The annual concert, which is the brainchild of Empire Entertainment, is built on celebrating, uniting and exploring the different yet similar musical tastes, cultures and artistes of both Ghana and Nigeria.

This year’s event won’t be any different, as organisers have once again lined up an impressive list of chart-toppers from Ghana and Nigeria to continue the tradition of staging a memorable show.
According to the organisers, the list of A-list artistes billed to rock the event will be announced at the official launch of the event on May 8 in Accra.
Also to be unveiled at the launch will be the numerous exciting packages put together by the event’s corporate partners for music lovers across the country as part of this year’s event.
The concert will be used to celebrate Ghanaian and Nigerian artistes and also give the Ghanaian and Nigerian music fans a party like no other.
“The event is all about unification and brotherliness within the spirit of having fun with our Nigerian brothers and sisters whom we have a lot in common and there is no better way to express that than through a concert,” organisers added.
