Uncategorized 370 Comments

The much-anticipated Ghana Meets Naija concert finally took place at the Accra International Conference Centre on Saturday night, but not without eventualities -the biggest being a performance by actor/comedian Lilwin alongside Guru. Lilwin performed a number of songs with Guru on stage much to the delight of patrons of the concert, but soon found himself insulting some sensibility when he came on stage with a bag, claiming it contained some secret medicine, which he was going to sell to the crowd. He then revealed that the medicine he was selling was ‘wee’ (marijuana), saying it was medicine that can take away one’s sorrows and troubles, as well as cure a number of sicknesses. He went on promoting ‘wee’ until the DJ tried to cut him off by sounding ‘the alarm’. Lilwin persisted, trying to overpower the loud ‘siren’ by throwing a fit and occasionally insulting the DJ with his signature insult (presumably meant to be funny). When he realized that his microphone had been killed, he rushed off stage. Soon after the incident MTN, title sponsors of the concert published a disclaimer on the screens to disassociate itself from the comments made by Lilwin. LilWin is seen as an MTN ambassador leading one of the telecom giant’s currently popular campaigns.
