?Music Music? Clocks 100,000 Fans In Oseikrom

Stacy & Bola Ray ?Music Music? has changed the music scene since it came up some years ago. It has always managed to draw a lot of crowd (music lovers) when it showcases the program outside their main studio, Studio B.

On the 27th November, 2004, ?Music Music? moved out of their compound again and this time round it, they settled at Kumasi. The show was held at Jackson Park which drew a crowd of about 100, 000 who filled the whole park by 6:00pm. The show was proudly brought together by Spacefon and Guinness Ghana Ltd.

Lovers of ?Music Music? anticipated that the show was going to be an all round (highlife, hiplife, gospel, and other genres of music) show but it did not happen that way but rather turned into a gospel rock show.

The familiar faces of Stacy, Bola Ray, Papa Sly, Koo Fori, YAD and other guest presenters were seen on stage to introduce the musicians and asking how the residents of Kumasi felt about the show.

The show started with an amazing performance from the gospel man of the moment, Prophet Seth Frimpong. Prophet Seth Frimpong really got the audience in high spirits as he sang ?Me huri So?. Then came, Kwaku Gyasi who also moved the crowd to their feet with his song titled ?Ayeyi Ahye M?akoma?. Phillipa Baafi was also there to sing out her joy to the Lord. Other gospel musicians followed up to praise the Lord.

K.K. Fosu and the Godfather of hiplife, Reggie Rockstone performed ?Fa Me Bone Kye Me? before K.K Fosu performed his song.

Speaking to Mr. Shariman, the CEO of TV3, we asked him about what he thought of the show in Oseikrom? ?I think it?s a good show and am amazed at the people that have attended?, he happily said.

Slim Busterr did an exclusive stage choreography work that dazzled the audiences that made them scream for more. Other hiplife artistes that followed up were Mobile Boys, Drinkables, Akosua Agyapong, Victoria Sarfo, Lady Prempeh, Nyansapo, Osa Ray, FBS, Okyeame Kojo Kumi, and Kokovelli respectively.

The climax of the whole program was when the TV3 executives? popped champaigns and cutting of the ?Oseikrom? cake for the residents of Kumasi for receiving them.

Koo Fori wasn?t too hot for the night but he managed to dish out a few jokes on stage.

What every ?Music Music? fan would be wondering right now is when is ?Music Music? coming to my town and Where is TV3 going next month.
