American Hip hop heavy weight and The Source Magazines’ 2010 Man of the Year, Rick Ross rocked the Dome of the Accra International Conference Centre Tuesday night, December 28, at what was arguably the most highly anticipated concert to hit the country.
Flanked by his Maybach Music team, Masspike Miles and Torch, the Teflon Don, as he is affectionately called, was just an unstoppable machine fulfilling the hype the show has received.
The man, born William Leonard Roberts II, was making his first appearance in Ghana and clearly, he loved every bit of it – he was instantly hit by the unquenchable energy from both the stage and a possessed crowd.
With a wide smile that showed he was deeply grateful to be in Ghana, the Boss was already rocking and was doing what he knows how to do best.
His presence drove the audience into a different realm, the result being an instant stampede as many wanted to catch a glimpse of the Hip hop maestro.
At that moment everybody was up standing, some standing on their ‘needless’ seats, with a sea of fans converging around the stage.
The Boss proved why he is the Teflon Don
Caught by the wild cheers, Rick Ross, who donned a white T-Shirt with a diamond crusted watch and necklace (bling-bling) at the first half of the show, was swift to work, dishing out well-known hits that cemented his name in the hearts of many.
He performed tracks like Hustlin, Push It, Magnificent, Here I am, Boss, and clearly, the show wouldn’t have been complete without the main song for the tour Blow Money Fast Tour, Blow Money Fast performing it twice noticing that the crowd was down with the song; in fact the crowd took over from him rapping as if the song was theirs.
The total mastery with which Rick Ross performed, changing from one track to the other and his connection with the audience, clearly proved why he is one of the best in the world music industry.
Due to travel arrangements, the Teflon Don only rocked the stage for about an hour and man, he really rocked! Without a doubt, he left an indelible mark in the hearts and minds of many.
The night wasn’t only about Rick Ross, other Ghanaian giants; Sarkordie, Asem, Kwaw Kese, Trigmatic, D-Black and Tinny also took turns to keep the crowd dancing all night long.
