It was a spectacle to behold on Friday August 18th, at the Shutdown All White Invasion Concert which happened at “The Pourhouse” in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The show which had Africa’s most decorated rapper, Sarkodie as main artiste was sold out.
The show as part of Sarkodie’s tour for his novel album, Jamz was spearheaded by multiple award winning event promoter Julian Kojo Asiedu known in showbiz circles as Jagonzy. The “Pourhouse” with a capacity of 1,200 was full with a bevy still outside, wanting to come inside.
“This was the sixth edition of the “Shutdown All White Invasion” and the anticipations were high. It was just prudent enough to put the King Sarkodie on it, since it was his first ever show in Minnesota. Truly, he was the perfect fit, as the show was sold out and lit as well”, the Shutdown CEO revealed.
He also revealed that most Ghanaian promoters in the diaspora, most especially, New York, Washington DC, Ohio, Chicago, North Carolina, Minnesota, Dallas, Atlanta, Canada and many more have come together to push the agendum of projecting our music across our borders and still finding the right connections for our artistes to go international.
King Sark who is on tour for his Jamz album has successfully sold out all venues he has done, with “The Pourhouse”, Minnesota being the latest.
The first phase of the Jamz world tour ended in Nashville, TN and Award winning promoter, Kofi Mogul and the rest of the team carry on and continue in Canada from September 1st to September 8th. They will head back to the states from September 9th to september 30th to wrap up five shows before calling the tour a wrap.
