The Notting Hill carnival is held in London and is the second biggest carnival in the world with an attendance of over a million people. This year’s carnival will be dear in the hearts of Ghanaians because one of its artistes, Gasmilla also known as the King of Azonto gave a good account of himself and country by giving of an exhilarating performance during a pre-carnival concert.
The said concert was dubbed “Groovy Soca Fusion” and was held from late night 25th August till the early morning of the official commencement date of the carnival which is 26th August.
Other acts that graced the concert were Trinidadian Soca super star Benjai; Rupee singer of Global smash hit Tempted To Touch and Olatunji.
Gasmilla was backed by the Unique Silver Dancers and together they delivered a routine which was described by observers as a fine blend of Azonto and the waist winding Soca dances.
Once again Azonto has pushed Ghanaian front further on the global music scene and Gasmilla is proudly hoisting high the Ghanaian flag. This passion is expressed in the colored labeled shirts he wears with a single message, ‘Azonto-2-Da-World’.
