Nigeria’s pop stars, 2Face Idibia and Wizkid are about to deliver the biggest Hennessy Artistry international concert in the city of Accra, Ghana this weekend as headliners.

The concert, which is being moved out of Nigeria for the first time ever, will hold Saturday, 18 October at the Accra International Conference Centre. It will have the two 2014 headliners performing alongside popular Ghanaian artistes including 4×4, Edem and MzVee, while South African duo, Mafikizolo, will join them in the rare gig.

Lere Awokoya, Brand Manager for Hennessy Nigeria, said bringing together these talented artistes from around Africa was influenced by Africa’s taste in music.

“Just as Hennessy is consumed in different countries on the continent, Africa has gotten to point where countries are sharing similar music tastes. 2Face and Wizkid have visited a variety of African countries including Ghana repeatedly and this is evident in their relevance on the African continent today,” Awokoya said.

Last weekend, the headliners, made their second club tour appearance at the Cosmo Lounge in Port Harcourt. They kicked off the show with a pulsating performance of their first collabo track, “Dance Go” as they mingled with guests.

Star Boy signee, L.A.X also joined Wizkid on stage to perform his monster track, ‘Ginger’.
