Saturday, April 6, 2019, was a night to remember, with top Ghanaian musicians and DJs taking center stage at the maiden edition of ‘Afrobeats to the World’ (Nineteen 57) concert in New York City.
La Même Gang member, Darkovibes, thrilled over 2,000 fans at the concert which went down at the PlayStation Theater in NYC, USA. The ‘Stay Woke’ hitmaker, rocked fans with songs like ‘Godzilla’, ‘Obra’, ‘Stables’, ‘Stay Woke’, ‘Bangers’, ‘Boys Kasa’, among others.
The list of star-studded performers included the likes of Lynx Entertainment’s, Kuami Eugene and KiDi; Legacy Life Entertainment’s King Promise; AMG Beyond Kontrol’s Medikal; Hiplife/Afrobeat duo, R2Bees, as well as YFM’s very own, Vision DJ, DJ Vyrusky, among others. Organized by Inside LLC, Safacom Group and E-Litt Group, the aim of the concert according to the CEO of Inside LLC, Nana Gyimah & COO, Kristin Nimoh, was to project Afrobeat from Ghana in the American music scene.
”After realizing the lack of Ghanaian artists present in the Afrobeat scene of America, we decided that we would put together a concert that would be the first of its kind. we hoped to not only highlight the Ghanaian music industry in America, but to also display Afrobeats to the world. With this idea in mind, we birthed the Afrobeats to the world, Nineteen 57 Concert”, they said. ”Each artist put on a memorable performance that the crowd would never forget, proving that Afrobeats is here to stay”, they added.
The event according to the organisers will be an annual event after the success of the maiden edition.
