There is no greater feeling like performing for a live audience. Nothing can reproduce the sonic and emotional power of live performance that can draw the audience to sing and groove to your music. To be the best stage performer, musicians need to be keen about their choice of songs, choreography, costume, microphone technique, audience control, good transition, breath control, and synchronisation with the band.
Be it a gospel or circular music concert, movie and music awards, tours, and corporate events,
It takes creativity, confidence, personality, charisma, energy, passion and a great deal of experience to steal a show. These are the best performing female acts in Ghana right now.

Talk of Becca and our minds are being drawn to the popular Becca Girl Talk concert, the first and one of its kind all female concert where she sang with a live band on all her hit songs.

Wiyaala, “The young lioness of Africa” is an Afro-pop singer who embraces the rich culture of Ghana and the Upper West region. It is extremely diffuclt to categorize Wiyaala’s genre because she is so damn multi-talented and makes music across border. Singing in Sissala, she has carved a name as the only woman in the world singing in the language. I mark her by stage appearance, energy, personality, choreography and good transition. In simple language, she knows how to thrill her fans. Some of her most memorable performances are Ovation Red Carol and Awards 2014, Ghana Music Awards 2015, #OKStripped, +233 Jazz Bar and Grill Concert, 2014 Fashion Icon Awards, Miss Ghana 2015, African Fashion show, Vodafone Legends Night 2016 and Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday party in Ghana 2017. Indeed she is one of Ghana’s best performers.
The queen of GH dancehall is one of a kind performer. Vera Hamenoo-Kpeda better known by her stage name MzVee is an Afro-pop, Hip-life, Dancehall and RnB artiste. This entertainment female vocalist knows how to set the stage on fire with her hot bangers which seem to attract the attention of most guys and favourite of most ladies who vibe her music. She is fond of using catchy phrases in her lyrics which makes her songs last long on music playlist. On her return from 2016 BET Awards, the songstress has gotten way better as she mentioned of being inspired by Beyoncé’s performance. Scrolling through the long list of events she has performed at, here are my favourite show-stopping acts; Muselive16 concert, Loud in GH Beach Mash Up, MTN Pulse concert 2016, Tigo Ghana meets Niger 2015, Ghana Music Awards 2014, Ovation Carol and Awards Night 2014, Ghana Rocks 2016, Miss Malaika 2016 and VGMA Nominees Jam 2017.
