If Nana Mensah, the Chief Executive Officer of Zylofon media and Menzgold Ghana Limited is yet to earn the trust and respect of Ghanaians in his gold business, he keeps scoring very high marks in his music venture.
You see, even 2 years ago, Becca couldn’t have dreamt of a partnership with a certain Zylofon Media and Zylofon Music but today, thanks to the Zylofon guys, she indeed marked her decade’s existence in the music world in grand style.
Rebecca Acheampong born and raised in Nigeria by Ghanaian parents domiciled there has done well for herself. She’s as articulate as she is stellar at her chosen career i.e. making music.
She is pretty as she is relatively scandal free and these positives must have convinced the Zylofon Media executives she was a safe bet to invest in.
And at the National Theatre in Accra on October 21, where competing events were ongoing, ‘Becca @10 Concert’ was heavily patronised by industry gurus and fans alike.
There was no way she could have pulled the music heavyweights who came on stage to share in her milestone without Nana Mensah’s reported vast financial reserves.
The Zylofon guys facilitated and ensured that African music heavyweights WizKid, Mr. Eazi, MI Abaga, Wande Coal, Ice Prince and Patoranking from Nigeria were in attendance alongside their Ghanaian lords VVIP, Bisa Kdei, Kwaben Kwabena, Stonebwoy, Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, Joyce Blessing and Mzvee while new breeds Kwame Eugene, Kidi and Miyaki made a name for themselves with the opportunity given.
True, the show delayed in commencing beyond the 10pm time advertised with the heat in the theatre not making things any easier for patrons but in the end, it was a show which had more positives than negatives.
Becca’s parents were in attendance to share in the joy of their child and with reports that her mum thanked former manager Kiki Banson for investing in her ward enabling her come thus far is welcome news in an industry where one time managers of artists are relegated when the big dough comes through.
Actor, James Gardiner was the emcee for the night.
