Last Saturday, the car park of the West Hills Mall at Weija in Accra came alive when some selected music icons thrilled music fans at the this year’s edition of the annual ‘YFM Area Codes Jam’ concert.
An ecstatic crowd made up of over 10,000 Ghanaian music fans from all walks of life including students from some of the tertiary institutions in the country, thronged the venue to participate in the event.
All the artistes who performed at the event virtually sent the enthusiastic patrons into frenzy when they took the stage in turns.
The much hyped musical jam witnessed historic performances from artistes such as Pappy Kojo, Kelvyn Boy, Fameye, Flowking, Feli Nuna, Ayisem and a host of others.
They thrilled music fans with some of their hit songs and some new tracks from their latest albums at the event.
The artistes impressed music fans with their singing and rapping skills, stagecraft as well as their dancing skills.
The night would have been incomplete without Wendy Shay, Medikal and Eno Barony. They gave a good account of themselves on stage during their stage performances.
“Omo Ada” hit maker Medikal, had the crowd chanting and singing to all the songs he performed on stage.
His delivery was amazing as fans stood on their feet dancing to show gratitude.
Wendy Shay performed excellently on the night as she entertained the crowd with most of her danceable hit songs.
From Uber Driver, Masakra, Stevie Wonder among other songs, she kept the audience enthralled through-out her performance.
Eno Barony also performed excellently on the night as she managed to thrill music fans to their satisfaction.
Music fans who attended the event described the event as one of the best concerts to be staged in Ghana this year.
Speaking at the event, Eddy Blay, the Programmes Manager of YFM said this year’s edition of the YFM Area Codes Jam was repackaged to give music fans nothing but the best.
“Area Codes Jam started in 2009 and we have given our community quality entertainment since the maiden edition in Dansoman. We could not have done it without the artistes who have always given their all to Area Codes Jam. To the team from YFM who always put the event together, I say kudos.”
He disclosed that Area Codes Jam will move to Kumasi and Takoradi in September and November to entertain music fans in the two regional capitals.
