Seasoned international Reggae/Dancehall jock, Seani B, of BBC 1Xtra who also has a syndicated radio programme on Accra’s nouvelle radio station, Asaase Radio 99.5fm will be hosting the Ghana Dancehall heavyweights – Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy – on the night of Friday, July 31, 2020 between 20:00hrs GMT – 23:00hrs GMT.
For the first time both artistes will publicly, via the radio network speak about the upcoming “Clash2CrushCVOID” Concert.
News spread across social media earlier this week about Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy headlining the campaign to crush the global pandemic, COVID-19, in Ghana.
Powered by Asaase Radio 99.5fm, the show would go a long way to rouse the Ghanaian Reggae/Dancehall scene.
Though details of the show hasn’t been (officially) communicated (yet), information available to BeenieWords.com reveals that the event will be staged in the month of August 2020.
Many Dancehall fans aficionados who have longed for this ‘fun-filled confrontation’ to happen are very excited. Other Ghanaian Reggae/Dancehall artistes are also very hopeful this maiden event would go a long way to become a household initiative they can also benefit from.
Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale will be involved in varied campaigns with their platforms to highlight the purpose of the initiative (crushing COVID with Dancehall) leading to the main event.
BeenieWords.com will be dropping feeds prior to the main event and after, do keep your fingers crossed.
