As usual, African Union Hall popularly known as Pentagon raised higher the standards in terms of Hall week celebrations when it hit campus with the biggest Hall week so far in the Academic Year.
Inside Pentagon early morning
The ‘Debees’ and ‘Wannabees’ were in session and the cars – as characteristic of Pent were around in multitudes with a huge human and vehicular traffic.
A lot was expected from them – the supposed trailblazers as they were known in always organizing the celebration in very grand styles with a lot of sponsors who invest heavily into the week celebration to make it great as it’s always been.
Dubbed Mosaic for this year’s edition, it kicked start with a Macho Monday with lots of bodily built men lifting weights and also showing what they’ve got through to the climax on Saturday, 4th January 2017 with a massive artists night which had a lot of heavy weights in the Ghanaian music industry passing through.
With a massive stage set, patrons were readying themselves for a well lit show. King Promise of Double Trouble featuring Sarkodie fame was the first to perform, singing some of his popular tunes to the wild cheers of fans.
Then the skill squad came – Keche thrilled patrons with some of their old tunes before winding it down with a couple of their latest tracks. And then young and budding female artist Feli Nuna also jumped up the stage with some great tunes.
Dr. Crime, a known face was also there to enthrall fans with his tunes. After him there was shouts from the fans who wanted to have a piece of Sassy and sexy Ebony. As usual she didn’t disappoint bringing with her a bed unto the stage and invited two guys who she treated to a grind.
Joel Orleans of Y FM was also on the stage to thrill fans with his hit single.
Then came the man of the moment. Poof poof man Medikal was there and the atmosphere really showed that the Youth was ready for him.
Lil Shaker was also there to pay his dues. And then Omar Sterling, Paedae hit the stage for more than 30 minutes thrilling fans with his back to back hit singles and the place went haywire.
At 10:44, the Chief Executive Officer of The Shatta Movement Shatta Wale who was the headline artist hit the stage to do what he knows best. Treated fans to a scintillating performance until power was taken out deliberately as the set time for the closure of all programs on campus was nigh. And as characteristic of him, he won’t stop performing especially when the fans are cheering him on.
Ignace Hego, the CEO of 4 Syte TV who made the program possible was also there to offer support to his men on the ground. But for a few wee smokers who filled the air with weed, the program was great as usual.
And if I’m made a judge for one minute, I will rate the show 11/10. Above expectations. Kudos Pentagon, you showed the class you are made of.
