Feeling excited, Gaylord Kofi, an expat living in Ethiopia for the past three years was present at the concert with his friends. He told The Reporter that he admired how organized the concert and how good the sound system was. Gaylord Kofi is a huge fan of afrobeat and that he has been listening to Yemi Alade since she first became an artiste. He was excited to see her perform on stage for the first time and praised that the concert was flawless.
Yemi Alade first rose to fame with her single “Johnny”. And who would have known she had such a huge fan base in Ethiopia. 10,000 tickets were said to be sold out at a unit price of 400 birr for normal ticket, 1,000 birr for VIP. Yemi Alade, queen of Afro pop did indeed prove that she is queen, by the buzzes of her fans at Ghion Hotel during the concert. Accompanying her on stage were other artistes including Betty G., Yared Negu and Asge Dendasho.
Even though there is a lack of proper concert stage, that did not stop the concert from happening. MOA Anbessa in collaboration engineers were excited to show their newly built stage. The stage was like no other, sponsored by Habesha Beer, it had a huge Ethiopian feel, there was Mesob all around. Before the event, the planners claimed to have been prepared to provide the best experience for all who came to attend the concert.
