The Accra Sports Stadium was packed to capacity for Shatta Wale and Medikal’s Freedom Wave Concert.
The highly anticipated event took place on Sunday, December 25, 2022, coinciding with the Christmas season.
Thousands of spectators flocked to the stadium to cheer on and support the two artists, who have significant fan bases in the country.
Fans could be seen crowding every section of the stadium even before the event began in videos that went viral across social media.
Other performers during the Freedom Wave Concert were Black Sherif, Wendy Shay, Quamina MP, Kofi Jamar, Phrimpong, and Joey B.
Shatta Wale had expressed anticipation that the stadium will be packed following Wizkid’s absence a few weeks before.
“…if we want to fill the Accra Sports Stadium we can fill it but when we fill it they should say we have filled it because it is not easy…this December the fans can come and fill the other side. We want to invite everybody to come to celebrate Christmas with us,” the dancehall artiste said, as quoted by Ghanaweb.
“I believe companies will pay huge sums to see the crowd lined up like this…all you see at the stadium is love…All those people you see at the stadium are like family members. We don’t stress to even get these numbers to the stadium…this show (last year) we put out the flyer a week to the show. We didn’t do a billboard or promo.”
Meanwhile, Shatta Wale praised his fans for attending his event on Twitter, writing: “Thank you SM Fans. Thank you again loyal blood SM fans. I owe you my life.”
