People who came out to the The Shop, Accra last Saturday evening for THE 50/50 AFFAIR WITH KAY-ARA can be conveniently grouped into two: day-ones who wanted to confirm if Kay-Ara’s still got it after a lengthy hiatus, and prospective fans who were there to give Kay-Ara the the chance to make them believers.
In what was his first show as a headliner after resuming from his break, Kay-Ara was engagingly fun, fly and high-voltage-electric.
Interspersing his sets with attire that seemingly fit the mood of the song(s) he performed during respective sets, Kay-Ara performed songs from his forthcoming album, For Those In The Middle.
All performances were live; and the warm and excited reception from the audience of songs that were largely new could be attributed to Kay-Ara’s showmanship – his arresting stagecraft and the sheer amazingness of the music.
Singer Omosede joined Kay-Ara on stage for the performance of a duet, and also did a recitation of a poem written by the latter.
If the aura in the premises – during and after the show – is anything to go by, then its very safe to say that Kay-Ara’s still got it; and also that: those who were prospective fans at the beginning of the event have now been turned into believers and thus, fans.
We are truly excited about For Those In The Middle.
