He comments: “Slowly but surely, America is recognizing African talents and I have to play my part. I can’t wait to introduce so many of the talented artists and producers we have back home in Ghana to the American audiences. But first I have to rock the crowds with great live performances to set the standard and open doors for others.”
The New York City show would be at the Nuyorican Club on 236 3rd St between Avenue B and C , at 10pm. Heavy crowds are expected so early arrival is suggested.
