As part of its 10th Anniversary celebrations, Ghana’s first large scale shopping centre; Accra Mall Limited on Friday 3rd August treated shoppers and patrons to euphonic live band music dubbed; ‘Highlife Night with the Funky Millionaires Band’.

For music lovers who trooped the Accra Mall last Friday, it was a delight to watch Ghanaian Highlife acts including Dada Hafco, Quarme Zaggy, Asaase among others mount the stage at the Mall’s food court for turns of electrifying performances.

The event was live on Happy 98.9 FM’s Ayekoo Drive show hosted by DJ Advisor and streamed live on the station’s Facebook and the TuneIn app to reach over a million traditional and digital audiences of the station.

According to Denise Asare, Marketing Manager at Accra Mall, the highlife night is part of events lined up to celebrate the mall’s 10th anniversary.

"We organized this highlife event because highlife is truly Ghanaian and we believe every Ghanaian resonates with its tones. From a broader perspective, we value the support and patronage received from Ghanaians in our 10 years of providing a unique and centralized shopping centre and therefore deem it fit to celebrate with every shopper.”

Obrafour
Hiplife artiste Michael Kwabena Okyere Darko, popularly known as Obrafour says only death can bring a stop to his music career.

He disclosed in a recent interview that there is no retirement in the music career.

“Once you are blessed with that talent, it is for life. I’m not sure there is pension in music, when God gives you music talent you can do it till death. All you need is strength,” he said.

He further stated that even though one cannot rule forever, new artistes emerging with time do not have to automatically retire old musicians.

“In this world, you can’t rule forever because everything has an end. I wouldn’t agree if someone says new crop of artistes are emerging so the old ones should retire,” the 'Ako' hitmaker said.

Hammer helped Obrafour secure a deal with Abraham Ohene Djan (OM Studios) and in late 1990s. He has released hit after hit since then. Some of his hit songs include, ‘Kwame Nkrumah’, ‘Aden’, ‘Pae Mu Ka’, Yaanom’, ‘Konkonsa’ and many others.
