Eve, Wyclef Jean and Mario will perform in Ghana next month at “The Zain 026 Experience,” a concert to introduce local citizens to the “Zain 026” code from Zain Ghana, an African telecom service provider.
The artists will take the stage at Ohene Djan Sports Stadium in Accra before an expected crowd of more than 30,000 people.
Also on the bill are 2Face Idibia of Nigeria and three other local top artists, Obrafuor, Kwaw Kese, and Tinny.
At a press launch of the event in Accra on Thursday, Wyclef Jean told journalists via telephone that he hopes to one day record a collaboration with a Ghanaian artist.
Zain Ghana marketing director Charles Mayerm said the company “is hitting the country in a big way through the assembling of one of the best international network technologies to give Ghanaians the best.”
