With artiste after artiste setting the stage on fire, the crowd couldn’t but ask for more. From the ‘I don get alert’ crooner, Korede Bello to Reekado Banks to the ebullient Simi with her JAMB question and Olu Sax as well as Abiodun Koya, whose melodious voice left a mark on the audience. The group, Cameo, a special import from the United States of America, was full of energy, dishing out hit sound after hit sound from their album, reliving the days of the future past.

The hall experienced a turn around with the arrival of the man behind the mask, the Publisher and CEO of the Ovation Media Group, comprising Ovation International Magazine, Ovation ONTV and the Boss online Newspaper, Bashorun Dele Momodu. A show stopper, Momodu showed why he is the first name in entertainment broadcasting and celebrity hyping.

Among the major highlights of the evening was the induction into the Ovation Hall of Fame of the President of Ghana, John Mahama as  well as a post humus award to OJB Jezreeel, who died of kidney related ailment on June 14, 2016. OJB was a friend of the Ovation house.

In his speech acknowledging the awardees, Bashorun Momodu described Mahama as a pan-Africanist, who has done so much for the African nation in general and Ghana in particular. He also described the late OJB as hard worker, who took Ovation as his own.

As if that was not enough, King Sunny Ade’s scintillating and one in town performance climaxed what was already a grand night. At 70, Sunny Ade performed like a young man of 25, moving his body with the ease of a toddler. He was magnificent.
