Launching an album has overly been a daunting task for most of our musicians with regards to innumerable factors, however, fast-rising Ghanaian reggae/dancehall musician Bastero defied all odds over the weekend to successfully launch his maiden album titled ‘Discovery’ and in style.
The launch of the 15-track album took place at La Tawala Beach on Saturday night where fellow musicians in the genre joined him as the prime event staged by the management team of the FinishPoint Recordz act was recorded in the history books of Ghana music.
The event began with performances from some of the country tenacious musicians in the genre including D-Sherrif, Rashid Metal, Luther, Masaany, MzGold and many more.
Artiste after artiste, songs after songs, the audience became bubbly as they sang along to some of the hot tunes released by every single musician on the bill while awaiting the supreme coming of the man of the moment, the “City Boss” Bastero.
The entry of the Terror Clique Movement (TCM) musician was a spectacular one in that his angel-inspired costume which he wore to perform his ‘R.I.P.’ song was just another perfect combination of stagecraft and props.
Skilled Ghanaian dancehall musician Ras Kuuku as well as the dancehall empress, MzGold joined the New Town-based musician to perform the ‘Badmind‘ and Fresh & Clean’ songs respectively. Bastero also performed his songs with hiplife group VVIP and Tinny [i.e. 'I Like' and 'Akwai Dadi' respectively].
A side attraction to the event was his top-notch stage act with young Ghanaian reggae/dancehall musician Larruso when they performed ‘Link Up’. The latter’s performance was lauded by many as another prolific performer from FinishPoint Recordz the world ought to watch out for.
The place was electrified even higher when DJ Massive dropped the hit song ‘Wyne‘ – a song which was premiered on GhOne TV almost a fortnight ago and gaining airplay. The two sexy and energetic female dancers shook what their mama gave them while sending the crowd into frenzy.
Audience at the event expressed their joy at the successful event while wishing Bastero the best in the music industry both in Ghana and around the globe.
