It’s an all female affair: Becca’s Girl Talk Concert

Becca_Rebecca_Acheampong _Me_FiRi_GHANAThe tagline ‘no guys, no boyfriends, no men’ says it all. Ghanaian singer Becca has demonstrated that she epitomizes the word ‘independent woman’ by sticking to her guns and going forward with her females-only concert slated for 23rd December. Becca, real name Rebecca Acheampong upset her male fans when she announced last month her upcoming concert at the National Theatre were for her female fans only. She elaborated later at a recent interview that everything about the concert was gendered towards women and it was the ultimate girls’ night out, and under no circumstances were men going to be allowed on the premises.

As well as having fun, the concert is also meant as a learning experience for the women who attend, with talks from outstanding women across various social class lined up for the night as well.

The afropop singer has promised some ‘big surprises’ on the night, with an all female production team and various female artists rumoured to be flying in across the continent for the concert. The concert, which is being put together by Becca’s management EKB Records and sponsored by RLG, is set to be one of the biggest events on the Ghanaian entertainment calendar.

UK Chale Show: Eddie Kadi & Neptizzle

233Connect presents “The UK Chale Show” with Eddie Kadi & DJ Neptizzle on XFM 95.1

From the UK straight to the Accra-based station ‘XFM’ a new radio show called “UK Chale” is set to hit the Ghanaian airwaves.

Eddie_Kadi_DJ_Neptizzile_Me_FiRi_GHANA_dot_ComGUBA Award winning DJ ‘Neptizzle’ and leading UK comedian ‘Eddie Kadi’ are teaming up together to provide the latest music from around the world including exclusive mixes from Neptizzle, interviews with celebrities, prank phone calls and priceless comedy by Kadi amongst his guests.

The ‘UK Chale’ show according to 233Connect, is to be aired on Saturdays between the hours of 10pm and 12am. The late night show is targeted at both male and females, aged between 16-40. Aiming to attract trendy, up-market individuals who are quite knowledgeable about the different genres of music, 233Connect hopes to keep the audience one step ahead of the music industry.

Despite the fact both presenters are not Ghanaians, Kadi who is currently a presenter at the number one urban station CHOICE FM has visited Ghana on countless occasions and has an excellent rapport with international acts.

Neptizzle on the other hand is linked to the mega growth of Afro beats in the UK and has recently been awarded for his contribution and talent.

I feel both Kadi and Neptizle couldn’t have been a more perfect match. Even from the name of the show, demonstrates their knowledge and interaction with the Ghanaian listeners. In Ghana the word ‘Chale’ is commonly used when addressing a friend and the duo has used this term to state they are friends from the UK.

The ‘UK Chale’ show is a 233Connect production, with all work handled by Paper4Life studious in the UK.
