This year’s 23rd edition of Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) got going on Friday May 6 at the Grande Arena with several Ghanaian artistes gracing the occasion with very fine performances.
Almost all the gigs of these artists including Wendy Shay, Kofi Kinaata, Kelvyn Boy, S3fa, KiDi and several other musicians showed class in front of the audience during their turn, but one name that kept people talking was Samini Dagaati.
Samini is known for unimaginable live shows from one side of the planet to the other, subsequently this wasn’t new to many fans across the globe, but this time, he was incredibly amazing.
With support from the Afro-Harmony band, he was simply fabulous, particularly his transitions, moving people to sing along, and to have more confidence in the international award winning artist Samini. His antiques, control over his notes, stage movements, breathe control, voice, and more was an affirmation of why he is an exemplary African artist.
Truth be told, his singing capacities were as though they were studio recording with numerous filters and additions. In fact, his voice was just natural, raw and auto-tuneless. He was consistent, flowed well, and as usual very excellent!
For many of our artists, they find Live Performance very challenging, and are now learning the method of how to get involved with being masters in Live Performance.
As said before, Samini isn’t new to this, since he began this ‘Lightning’ stage shows ages ago, when others were miming in front of audiences. Playing a performance with a Live band brings your energy out, and that is by and large the thing Samini brings to fore, and has always lit up his fans from one side of the planet to the other.
The truth of the matter is, live shows accompanies loads of ‘ingredients’ including genuinely working for your physical strength and energy, plus a great deal of reasoning.
