Artistes who got the crowd off their feet and dancing included Archipalago, Kaykay Amponsah, Millicent Yankee, Fletcher Narh, Stella Seal, Naana Baustin, Keche, Eno Barony, Fameye among others.

The event which was streamed live on Kofi TV, Kantanka TV and Adom TV was viewed by over 200,000 people from all over the world.
