The much-talked about 'Stand Up GH' concert featuring American R&B singer Keri Hilson and rapper Bow Wow saw some exciting highlights from the headlining acts on Saturday.
Bow Wow stunned the crowd with an energetic stage performance that left fans screaming for more. It was clear that it wasn't just the fans that were happy to see the rapper; Bow Wow seemed happy to be in Ghana and Africa as he interacted now and then with the crowd telling them about how excited he was to be in Ghana and the overwhelming feeling of support from his fans in Ghana. He said it was a poor excuse for most American artist to refuse to come to Africa simply because of the distance.
The rapper seemed pleasantly surprised when the lovely young lady he pulled from the crowd onto the stage to perform his hit 'Shortie Like Mine' to, ended up rapping each line in the song. Bow Wow handed the lady his microphone for her rap a few lines. After the performance, the rapper commented “wow she knew every single word…”
Other highlights from Bow Wow's performance included climbing up the pillar for the lighting system on the stage to rap. This was the first time any artist, local or international had pulled such a stunt at the Dome of the Accra International Conference Centre.
Keri Hilson also had an intimate performance with the crowd as she dazzled with sexiness and suaveness. She wowed fans particularly with 'Pretty Girl Rock' and 'Knock You Down' which she saved for last. She commented that she had been to 8 countries in Africa but said Ghana so far has been number 1! She also attempted the popular Azonto dance to the delight of the crowd.
The concert which was hosted by actors James Gardner and Tonto Dikeh also saw performances from Ghanaian acts including Guru, Kwaw Kesse, Edem, Rana, Chemphe and Buk Bak.
