It caused a mini “sensation” when American hip-hop vixen Amber Rose was billed to host the Music Meets Runway event in Nigeria but did not attend due to a booking mix-up. Now she has landed in West Africa for a different event, Amber Rose will be hosting the Vodafone 020 Live Concert in Accra, Ghana tonight.
The annual concert is in its second year and this time, international R&B star is headlining the concert. Other artistes billed to perform include VIP, Five5, R2Bees, Stay Jay, D Cyme, RnM and D’Banj.
According to Uche Ofodile, Chief Marketing Officer for Vodafone Ghana, “020 Live is the biggest musical concert in Ghana and this is because of Vodafone’s firm commitment to music. We want to give Ghanaians and our customers the best experience in everything we do so we have made sure that the 020 Live concert is second to none. This year, we have produced a show that exhibits the best of international and African talent which promises to be a powerful combination of music and dance. We firmly believe that music is one of the simplest forms of expression and communication and this is something we want to share with music lovers in Ghana.”
Since she arrived in Ghana, Amber Rose has taken time out to explore the country and inspire young ladies in the country. Check out her photos below and her words on each of the experiences.
I went & spoke 2 young girls at an Islamic school in Ghana today about Girl Power education & not falling into the wrong lifestyle as I did as a young girl. I made a lot of mistakes in my life & they've come back to haunt me, but now I have the opportunity 2 talk to girls all over the world & to let them know that they should chose a better way & not follow in my footsteps. These girls are Awesome & it was a true blessing meeting them today they have inspired me! #InspireGirls #GirlPower
The guys played the drums for me & said they wanted to Welcome me home, naturally I told them I wasn't from Africa & They said "We r all brothers & sisters everyone comes from Africa Welcome home Amber" #Deep
