As the year comes to an end, Christmas festivities and a general celebratory ambiance will be the center of December across the world and it will be no different in Ghana. The West African country will be thriving in the spirit of “detty” December.
Since 2019, the country has been known to host all returnees and people from the diaspora in December. Apart from tourist sites, visitors anticipate seeing during their visits several concerts. Most people from the diaspora tailor their visit to the country around the concert dates. In anticipation of this year’s events, here are five concerts everyone is looking forward to.
1. Wizkid Live in Ghana
The starboy will have his debut concert in Ghana on December 10 at the Accra sports stadium. The 40,000-seat stadium will see Nigeria’s biggest Afrobeats sensation pull off another great concert after his concert in New York early this year. Top of the expectation list of fans is a performance of his latest album “More Love, Less Ego” as it would be his first time performing the album in Africa.
2. Kizz Daniel Live in Concert Accra
The Buga sensation returns to Accra on December 23 to keep fans all jammed up this festive period with an epic performance. He expressed his excitement to local media stating that he could not wait to be back in Ghana. Lined up to perform at the concert are Herman Suede, Gyakie, Kidi and Camidoh all from Ghana.

The likes of Boris Cudjoe and Jidenna have all been patrons of the event. This year, Afrochella brings out the African Giant, Burnaboy, to perform. The two-day festival will run from December 28 to 29 at the El-Wak Sports Stadium. The Afro-culture-themed event allows patrons to share culture; vendors come around to showcase their products and the night is crowned with the performance. It is a concert to look out for.
