Every single day, Ghanaian artistes show us how good they are by getting to new audiences and reaching new heights.
Bisa Kdei is one of such artistes; he revealed on Empire FM that his team is considering an invitation from Ivorian president Alhassan Ouattara to headline a strong list of music acts from the continent.
Bisa is the only Ghanaian who has been invited to perform at the show.
The indigenous crooner also shared experiences on his recent London tour before revealing that he was hard at work on a collaborative project between himself and Nigeria gem Reekado Banks. Inside sources say that the song is of Afropop genre but KDei himself is tightlipped on giving further details. Apparently, both artists have decided to keep information about the song on a down-low until the song is finally released.
Lately, International tours are the new bread-and-butter of an exploding continental music industry. The best music acts do not only stay home to pack auditoriums to capacity or enjoy money-spinning endorsements and sponsorships but as well have added a new venture of touring nations across the continent to headline sporting events, fanbase expansion or award concerts, presidential inaugurations and celebratory concerts.
Multiple award-winning R&B artist Akon once professed, “Africa is the next major region of growth in spending on music and entertainment.” The talented African-American artiste has been proven astute with that prediction. Africa’s entertainment industry has developed into a billion-dollar economy. Much credit to music acts all across the continent for working hard to achieve this reality.
