About four hours after landing in Accra on Sunday afternoon, Richard Bona and Kojo Antwi moved straight to a secret location for their first rehearsal together around 7pm, Sunday.

“I’ve always loved to be in Ghana, and once I’m here, expect something else. Plus I would use my brother, Kojo Antwi’s platform to launch an annual International Jazz Festival in Ghana”, Richard tells The Entertainer after the rehearsal late Sunday.

This will be his first performance with Kojo Antwi and “I can’t wait to make it my Christmas present, and a very memorable one for that matter, to Ghanaians”, Richard Bona said.

Among other Ghanaian artistes on the bill include Castro, Sherifa Gunu and Nino.

“The event starts at 8pm, but I will be on stage at exactly 10:45pm; so now that you know, you don’t want to miss my infamous entry”

Tickets for the event are going for Ghc100 and Ghc150 (V.I.P) and are available at Airport Shell, National Theater, Breeze Offices (29 Aviation Road, Adjacent to Asuma Banda Mosque) or one may call the ticket hotline at 0249 405 939.

2013 Kojo Antwi’s Passion Reloaded Concert is sponsored by Guinness Ghana Breweries Limited and the freshest radio station in Accra, Breeze 90.9FM.

Among so many hits to perform on Tuesday night, expect Richard Bona to do the big ones love by Ghanaians: ‘Ghana Blues’, ‘Please Don’t Stop’ featuring John Legend, and ‘Kalabancoro’ (off his Munia album).
