2016 lived to be a very fruitful year for Northern music from the breakthrough of its artists, massive concerts to the growth of the fan base. The year experienced massive breakthrough from the north in artists such as SAANI , Maccasio and most prominently Fancy Gadam. Also, the biggest shows in Ghana were staged in Tamale,the capital of the Northern Region, with the Nawuni Yeko Album Launch,69 Peace Concert, Davido Vrs Ataaka, Gadam Nation x Bhim Nation Concert, Operation Suhudoo, and The All White Peace Concert, which brought down the curtains for the year. It is important to bring to your notice that all these shows recorded not less than 1000 populace and were all sold out at the Tamale Sports Stadium with exception of The All White Peace Concert, which was a free show. The fans stood resolutely behind the artists which is evidenced in the increase of followers of the big artists on social media, the enthusiasm surrounding the release of new tracks from artists, as well as the profession of big names in Ghana such as Stonebwoy,Shatta Wale and even Davido from Nigeria at the marvel of the crowd that patronized their shows.

However we look up to you in your next event to give Northern Art the due recognition for the unmatched achievements nation wide.
