Party Live With Gyakie: R2Bees, King Promise forgiven after Wizkid no-show?


Exactly a week ago, many music fans cried foul when Wizkid did not appear on the stage where he was billed to perform at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Though most of the Ghanaian acts did their bid in opening for the Nigerian Superstar, some compatriots such as King Promise and R2Bees did not do same.

Wizkid blamed security issues and production while King Promise followed up with an apology of his own citing security concerns as the move for his absence.

Fans expressed disappointment with others vowing to cancel the said musicians, especially this festive season.

But the roar that greeted two of these artistes when they popped up at Gyakie’s concert at the La Pam Royal Beach Hotel on Saturday was electrifying.

The ‘Party Live With Gyakie’ was organised to crown a successful year for the Songbird and attracted hundreds of fans to witness their star.

What they did not expect was an appearance by the trio – R2bees and King Promise – who jumped on stage to perform some collaboration with Gyakie.

It was their first outing since that controversial night. But interestingly, they were rather received with rapturous plaudits.

Promise and Mugeez made their entrance with ‘FineWine’ after which Omar Sterling joined in with Nineteen-Ninenety.

However, does the thrill that welcomed their performance from the audience represent a sign of forgiveness from their fans and critics?

There is one more outing that will provide the answers needed – The Promise Land Concert on December 23.

Meanwhile, Gyakie also received numerous good wishes from fans as the event was being hosted on the Flip Music signee’s birthday.

Other musicians who showed up to support Gyakie include Samini, Bisa Kdei, Sista Afia, La Meme Gang, Asakaa Boys, and DJay, and R2bees.
