Ghanaian reggae and dancehall act Samini has revealed he is planning to stage a great comeback concert with his former music group that consisted of himself, KK Fosu and Kokoveli.
According to Samini, the music trio, who were known back in the days as the ‘Trinity’, will unite to perform their popular hit songs on stage at the ‘MTN Saminifest’ music festival.
The group rocked the airwaves with their hit songs like ‘Zaza’, among others, between 2003 and 2004 before they decided to go their separate ways.
“This concert will feature some of the biggest stage rockers in Ghana. For the first time in a long time, I will be performing with the Trinity— a group I rolled with in my early days, featuring KK Fosu and Kokoveli,” Samini stated at the launch of the MTN Saminifest over the weekend.
MTN Saminifest is an annual music festival that seeks to bring together music patrons from all over the world to celebrate Samini as an artist, his musical works and also to showcase classact performances from leading Ghanaian artistes.
The maiden edition of the four-day music festival will kick off from December 3 to December 6, with events ranging from Industry Workshops, Photo and Video Exhibition, African Market Day and the main concert at the Accra Trade Fair to climax the festival.
This year’s event is also to celebrate Samini’s 10 years in the music industry. “But why Saminifest? I have always thought we need a programme that reflects the massive opportunities in our industry and a great deal of tourism potential and revenue for our country and the Creative Arts Industry, and that is what I see in MTN Saminifest.
Also, the first edition of the event coincides with my 10-year anniversary in music; meaning fans should expect nothing but great promise for our industry.
It’s a unique experience you don’t want to miss,” Emmanuel Andrews Samini, as he is known in real life, added.
The event will bring together a host of top-notch Ghanaian artistes like Obrafour, Paapa Yankson, Stonebwoy, Kaakie, R2bees, 4X4, Episode, Kofi Kinaata, Noble Nketiah and Jupitar.
