FOKN Bois with DJ Black and friends 
The Big In Ghana Talent Hunt and Tour’ took off last weekend with a massive turnout in Takoradi and Tema.
 The talent hunt and tour has two more free shows scheduled for the Kumasi Cultural Centre on Friday, August 31 and Holy Gardens at Circle, Accra on Saturday, September 1. The tour is sponsored by Bavaria and supported by Alomo.
The FOKN Bois, Efya and Yaa Pono, along with the new found talents, dazzled an excited crowd at the Jubilee Park on Friday, August 24. They were backed by a live band from Afro Harmony, Ghana’s youngest professional band.
After the opening act by King Lucas who warmed up the crowd in Takoradi, the touring four new talents- Anas (Takoradi), NT4 (Kumasi), Ohene Amoako (Tema), and Bryte (Accra)- showed the diversity and talent that Ghana has to offer by performing their best to win votes. 
There were also interesting performances by Yaa Pono who did ‘Shopping Mall’, ‘Oh Joe’ and ‘I Dey Feel You Die’, and more.
 Efya performed ‘Little Things’, ‘Sexy Wahala’ and ‘Best in Me’ as part of her eight-song set.
FOKN Bois rocked with the performance of ‘Thank God We’re Not A Nigerians’, tracks from individual albums, tracks from ‘Coz Ov Moni’ and the ever so controversial ‘Ko Ti Eduro’ song. There were surprise appearances by Gyedu Blay Ambolley and Kofi Kinaata which sent the Takoradi crowd into a frenzy. The attendees did not want to leave even after the show was over.
A Takoradi concertgoer said: “I can’t believe this show was free. I would have gladly paid. Live band and such good performances haven’t happened here in a very long time.”
In Tema, the beautiful display of lights, LED images and crisp powerful sound from the Big In Ghana stage attracted many people from the Community 7 neighborhood.
The host of the tour, PY of ‘The One Show’, was pleasantly surprised by Pope Skinny of Kasahari Level who assisted in hosting and hyping the Tema crowd with spontaneous performances. Again, the opening acts impressed and the headliners Yaa Pono, Efya and FOKN Bois once again outperformed themselves.
Bryte, the new talent from Accra, has moved two steps closer to winning the Ultimate Bavaria GH¢20,000 prize with leading votes from the audience in both Tema and Takoradi. 
DJ Black of ‘Open House Party’ will be joining the final two free shows at the Kumasi Cultural Centre and Holy Gardens in Circle. He will bring his video DJ’ing skills currently on show on Channel O. DJ Black said, “This year I toured Europe with the FOKN Bois, and I just had to be on this tour. I am going to get the crowd ultra-hyped before the artistes hit the stage.”
Yaa Pono added, “We rocked Takoradi and Tema; Kumasi and Accra can only be better and we’re all really excited.”
