December to Rememba. 24th night at the International Conference Center, what-a-blast, and I became a Kakie fan.  Of all the performances that night, I enjoyed watching Kakie gyrating and showing us her singing dancing combination more than anything else.  Of course, EL, Ketche, Bisa, Batman and the rest were really great, and Tiffany too, and don’t get me wrong it was overall a very well choreographed and well managed program, the sound quality was good, lighting was excellent and the performances were of the highest standard. I came home at two in the morning, thinking I spent a well earned night in the unspoken space of the stretch denim and white blouse young lady in the aisle seat to my left as she hip-twirled and rhythm-bumped to “Tonga” and a host of other songs, cyber crotch-stabbing a target for later that night.  I recognised the hits, the benefit of having many nieces at this age and I thoroughly enjoyed my night.

And it got me thinking, shouldn’t we reach out further, string this creative music into something more dynamic?  Plan a week-long Independence day event from March 1st every year?  We could have events every day for seven days.  Stage plays, poetry, episodic trips to places in Ghana, inter-regional tug of war and football, independence marathon.  Invite our friends from Nigeria, Cote D’Ivoire, Togo, South Africa, Senegal.  Let them bring their best performers to join us, we could teach each other a lot of things.  Hmm, might have to rethink Nigeria; Boko Haram might follow.
