AJ nelson’s live band show was one of the best I’ve ever seen in my life especially in the Hip-Hop sector in our music industry. The show that saw highly rated quest artistes like Okyeame Kwame, Kesse, Natural Face, AJ Omo Alajah and other young up-coming stars embraced over 250 audience at Taverna Tropicana. Even though, the show delayed a little bit comparing to the commencement time, it saw the light at its peak. AJ Nelson had already rehearsed with his band named Phonky Phew but popularly known as “Orgasm” for a good unstoppable three weeks ahead of the show.
A beautiful lady, Olivia popped into the stage with a smile. To be frank, I didn’t know her but all crowd cheered her up massively. Believe it or not, Olivia’s voice and Celine Dion’s are the same. Her sweet melodious and indisputable vocals drew the crowd’s attention to the show even though some were scattered.
The show continued with a young talented dancehall artiste, Jah White, who put up the real definition of dancehall with a live band performance. The audience was a little bit dull but he woke their spirit up with his high tempo voice beyond the mic. Surprisingly, the crowd who has gathered asked him to come back on stage and perform the same song because they all enjoyed it.
Just after Jah White’s fine performance, Kesse entered the pub with her beautiful lady followed by Natural Face, AJ Omo Alajah and the rap docta, Okyeame Kwame in a row.
Kesse took the mic from Olivia and did one of his first singles plus his popularly known Highlife song “Treat Her Royal” which drew the crowd even more closely to the stage. He exchanged the wand with Natural Face as he performed his award wining “So High” and “God Dey” respectively.
Okyeame Kwame finally stepped up on the stage and the crowd decided to request for their favourite tunes from him instead of performing his own rehearsed song. They all request for his hit track of all time “Faith”. Even though, in the absence of Amanda’s vocals, the ladies among the crowd decided to take over the vocals while he does the rap. The ladies truly showed how perfect they are with the lyrics matching with the band. After all, Okyeame Kwame said to the crowd “I missed Amanda”.
AJ Omo Alajah took the mic from him with a massive effort which somersault the crowd gathered. He performed his latest hits tracks “Gblelemo” and “Gegede Shokoya”. He went on to do the Amanda, Azonto and Al-quaeda dances with those tracks.
Then comes the man himself, AJ Nelson the BA emcee. He began with a word of prayer, hope and motivations. He did some of his debut singles including “Enemy” ft. AJ Omo Alajah, “Same Girl”, “Faith”, “Won’t Give Up” ft. Kesse and his newly unveiled love track “One To Love You”. He finally ended the show with his hit track “Barima” which woo and drove the crowd to raid Fiesta TV, ThinkGhanaMusic.Com and Flex Newspaper crew from their stance in order to get in touch with him.
Okyeame Kwame was totally carried away with his non-stop 45 seconds rap flow and shouted in the crowd “This guy has improved”.
