Demarco Finally Arrives In Ghana Ahead Of Saturday Concert
7/6/2012 11:33:20 PM -
Jamaican reggae musician Demarco touched down at Ghana's Kotoka International Airport, yesterday Thursday July 5, ahead of his much anticipated 'I Love My Life' Concert on Saturday July 7.
The 'I Love My Life' Concert, being organized by Phamous People and LCA Ghana, was previously scheduled for Sunday, July 1 but it was postponed as the headliner, Demarco, could not make it to Ghana before Sunday.
At a press conference on Sunday evening, organizers blamed Demarco's failure to make it to Ghana on the difficulties in flight connection from Miami to Ghana after leaving Jamaica.
Organisers have since apologized for not staging the show on Sunday. On Saturday, the show will come off live at the Dome of the Accra International Conference Centre.
Hundreds of music enthusiasts are expected to troop to the venue to watch Demarco on stage in Ghana for the first time.
He arrived in Ghana yesterday at about 12:30 pm and was welcomed by Ghanaian dancehall icon Andrew Samini, who is well known for his great stage works.
Demarco has a day to prepare for the anticipated big night alongside interviews and other promotional works ahead of the concert.
Reports said organisers had lost huge sums of money as a result of the postponement. Tickets already sold for the previous date are still valid though. But a lot went into printing new posters and other form commercials.
Among the Ghanaian artistes expected to rock the stage with Demarco are Rex Omar and Kwabena Kwabena, Tinny, Asem, Edem, Eazzy, Kaki, Tinny, Jupiter, Nsemkwa (Yaa Pono), Myron A.K. A top Nigerian music star will be announced as the surprise act on the night, with Abeiku Santana of Okay FM as the MC.
