DJ Blow on the turntables
It would be a safe bet to indicate that the Mirror Ball last Friday trumped any party held throughout Ghana, judging from the number of patrons in the Branche Lounge of the Golden Tulip Hotel in Accra, the over flowing parking lot and the caliber of glamorous ladies and gentlemen!
The ambience is akin to the best that Joburg, London, New York or LA have to offer on any blessed Friday night.
The only advantage for Accra over the afore-mentioned cities is the spice in the kebabs and the privilege of hearing an icon like Amaakye Dede also in the mix, serenading the ladies with ?Emaa pe sokoo? in the company of legendary tunes like Starpoint?s ?Object of my desire?, Frankie Smith?s ?Double Dutch Bus? and Kool and the Gang?s ?Celebration?. Oh yeah! It was a night to remember.
The ?freestyle? theme obviously engaged a good number of Accra?s avant guarde who shared memorable moments with friends and peers over fine drinks and food, while most dug into the parquette floor as directed by DJ Blow who transmitted a barrage of classics with chronological precision.
The poor dance floor had no relief from all those heels poking it as if they were friends on face book till the early hours of Saturday.
Of course when the finest blended Scotch whisky like Johnnie Walker is on hand to welcome you off Accra?s most respectable red carpet, then you know you are in for a rewarding night of world class fun.
The next event on April 25th will be Ghana?s official ?Easter After Party? and the celebratory theme is ?White with a touch of silver?.
