With February being the designated month of love and all, it was just right that our friends from Accra City Nice put together an event centred on the theme of love. The whole idea was to explore the concept of love in the Accra city, the various facets through which it is expressed whilst enjoying sounds from indie artiste Tommy WÁ and later shaking our bodies to the beats of DJ Flavour.
As always the creatives from ACN changed the format and setting of this event from the previous ones. Instead of the usual indoor setting where the guest can interact with the performers in an enclosed environment, Maweuna, Kofi,Eric & co turned the space in our shop into a cool band stage. The whole set-up was simple and had an indoor-outdoor feel to it (like a movie screening outdoors).
Watch Tommy WÁ play live at Accra City Nice’s Love in Accra City experience inside Lokko House. Love in Accra city is an exploration of the different aspects of love expressed by creative people in the city of Accra. It’s an experience which allows them showcase their love language through their chosen craft.

Our team in collaboration with our cultural influencer friends from Accra City Nice put together a playlist listening session dubbed “Hip-Hop in Ghana playlist”. The idea was to have a block-party style listening session where the audience gets to jam and rave to mad Hip-Hop tunes. Turns out that’s exactly what happened; the situation was LIT!!. We had cool and virtually new acts like Kwadjo Spiri, Jo Esko, Yung Bazz among others come to perform much to the pleasure of the crowd. Temple of Pata Camp took us through some of his favourite Hip-Hop songs and kept the energy high with his dope freestyle performances. All in all, it was a really good event and the folks that came through left the place with a memorable experience etched in the back of their minds. A podcast of the discussion we had during the event is available on the Accra City Nice Soundcloud page.
We had a really interesting playlist session with yoga instructor Irene Donati of Yoga For Unicorns and the Queen of GH Soul, Ria Boss. They gave an insightful look into how yoga is practised (with a few breathing lessons obviously), a conversation on life, love & music as well as a smooth serenade from Ria Boss herself. It was a night of fun, music and drinks bringing the month of June to a beautiful end.
ACN> First person we called after listening to their collaboration was Ofoe Amegavie …the convo went something like this:
