As part of preparations for their Freedom Wave Festival, which is scheduled to take place from December 20–25, 2023, Shatta Wale and Medikal have designated a day for prayer for Ghana’s music industry.
The two performers and their supporters will pray for the industry on December 23, 2023 at the Accra Sports Stadium, as stated on the event’s advertising flier.
The 5-day festival will also feature the entrance of regional fan bases, a display of Shatta Movement products, a pre-concert featuring new artists, an artist dress rehearsal, and the main event itself.
The Freedom Wave Concert, as it was once known, has been transformed by the two artists into a festival with the inclusion of additional events and four more days.
After both having run-ins with the police that led them in jail, Shatta Wale and Medikal hosted the inaugural Freedom Wave Concert in 2021.
In 2022, they released the second edition as a follow-up. The pair won praise from the crowd for packing the stadium, which can hold 40,000 people.
In recent years, Shatta Wale and Medikal have vowed their unwavering support for one another and have worked together on collaborative projects, like as the “Cross Roads” album.
