According to GhanaMusic.com, the ‘Back In The Day’ concert was a success! I wish I was there though. In my opinion, such events should be organised often. A lot of Hipife artists performed such as T-blaze with the hit single ‘Wo sisi y3 wo ya’, Reggie Rockstone and Obrafour. I still love Hiplife music.T-blaze asked for a minute’s silence in honour of the late Ronnie Coaches of Buk Bak who died last month.
Read here some of the things that GhanaMusic.com reported:
Hiplife bigwigs, Obrafour and Reggie Rockstone proved they were the undisputed authorities in the genre at the second edition of the Back In the Day concert held last Friday at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC)
Their coming onto the stage was splendid!
The auditorium was dark for about three minutes and people wondered what was going to happen.
Just as the lights came back on, the audience saw the two men dressed in all- white with crowns on their heads, seated on what looked like thrones.
With applause from the audience, the two wasted no time in delivering what was expected of them.
Obrafour performed tunes like, Yaanom, Twe Wo Ho, Heavy, Asem Sebe, Who Born You By Mistake, and Oye Ohene (remix).
Rockstone also thrilled everyone around with Plan Ben, Keep Your Eyes On The Road, Different You, Different Me and Ya Bounce Wo Visa.
Reggie and Obrafour invited Raquel and Efya on stage who backed them with their silky voices.
For the one hour that both artistes were on stage, the audience danced and sang along with them.

Organised by Empire Entertainment, the show started around 10.00pm with T-Blaze. He sang songs like Feeling No Ye Deep, Secretary and Wo Sisi Yewo Ya.
Hiplife duo, TH4Kwages came on after T- Blaze. They spent about 10 minutes on stage and were able to move the audience with songs like Nana Esi and Meye Aware.
As Nii Ayi Tagoe of Joy FM, emcee and deejay on the night played good old Hiphop, R&B and Hiplife stuff from the 1990s, a group called Short Clan appeared from nowhere onto the stage and did their own thing. Though their performance looked good, the audience did not respond much to them.
After a short break and during which time the audience were shown still pictures of celebrities that had passed on, the headline act Naughty By Nature finally arrived on stage at about 1:30 am.
Regarded as one of the world’s best Hiphop groups of all time, Naughty by Nature did not disappoint the fans.
Performing songs like O.P.P., Uptown’, Dirt, Craziest, Everything, Jamboree, Feels Good, and Feel Me Flow for an hour, the group was impressive on the night.
Though, the show had a nice stage setting and good quality sound, there were a lot of empty seats.
