Shaggy to rock Accra again 6/19/2007
Dancehall music legend Shaggy will make a triumphant return to Ghana in August for a big two-day concert as part of a never-to-be-forgotten Reggaefest 2007 celebration. Shaggy, whose 2005 concert at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) is rated among the best foreign artiste performances in GH, will storm Accra with other reggae heavyweights from Jamaica for what will become an annual Reggae music festival in Ghana.
Known in real life as Richard Burrell, Shaggy, aka. Mr. Boombastic aka Mr. Lover Lover is not by any means a new name and face to Ghanaians with his music enjoying lots of airplay and in clubs and parties.

Donna Amoah, Executive Assistant to the Chief Executive of Silicon House Productions (Richard Hlomador) told JIVE over the weekend that Shaggy will be on stage with Mr. Vegas, Buju and other artistes for the 1st Reggaefest celebration in Ghana.

The August 11 & 12 shows will be staged at the AICC and the forecourt of the State House (opposite the AICC). Donna confirmed that the deal to have Buju on the Reggaefest 2007 bill has been sealed and all artistes especially Shaggy who promised to come back after the 2005 show, are excited about the Ghana tour.

Silicon House Productions has over the last couple of years powered almost all indoor & outdoor entertainment events in Ghana, providing sound, lighting, stage, live band equipment and other acoustics. Mr. Hlomador chipped in during the interview that the company has taken delivery of more advanced equipment and remains confident that the two-part show earmarked for this year will be the best ever.

The second Silicon House show for 2007 is billed for September. Billed as ‘September to be Remember’, it will be another Jamaican reggae invasion of Ghana and is being planned to celebrate the life of Joseph Hill, a.k.a. Culture who died last year.

Donna says the September concert will be “a culture thing” with Richard adding that the last place Culture performed before his death was Ghana. ‘September to be Remember’ will be a perfect celebration of the One Man who promoted ‘Culture’ music around the world.

On the bill will be Kenyatta(Culture’s son, who has taken over from him), Luciano, Ganja farmer (Marlon Asher), Sizzla and Etana. But by far, Elephant Man who is due to release a new album in August will be the fan’s favourite together with the highly promoted Ganja farmer.

‘September to Remember’ is billed for the 8th & 9th and according to Donna both concerts will have celebrated with Ghanaian artistes Samini, Wutah, Bandana, Shasha Marley and King Ayisoba.
