Music Legend, ‘The Maestro‘, Kojo Antwi, through late July and early September, 2018, embarked on a historic tour of the United States (US) that saw him tour six States in a tour that has been described as “very successful” by the ‘Music Man’.
Dubbed “The Maestro USA Tour 2018”, the roads how made its first stop in Chicago on July 25, and headed into the American Capital of Washington DC on August 11, 2018.
In an interview with TheAfricanDream.net, Kojo Antwi said, it was good to be back and touring the US after almost 6-years.
“My first gig in Chicago was great, so was Washington DC. I think the organizers did a great job at promoting this tour as both the Ghanaian and African communities in the Diaspora came out to receive us very well at all our stops”, the Maestro said.
Kojo Antwi said “this was absolutely fun. I will surely be back. I need to finish up work on my 14th studio album as my fans have been waiting for something new from me. I apologize for the wait, but it will be worth it when it’s all over because this coming album will have something for everyone, I promise”.
When TheAfricanDream.net asked for more info about the new album, the musician smiled and retorted, “just expect vintage Kojo Antwi with a blend of modern and a pinch of Afrocentric flavor for lovers of music, no matter their race or taste. Let me also say there will be some great features as well, like Mugeez of R2Bees and dancehall artist Stonebwoy”.
‘The Maestro US Tour 2018‘ will soon be followed up with other tours across the globe according to Kojo Antwi who told TheAfricanDream.net that he is working on countries to include on the next tour where he plans to promote the new album and also give life to the growing power of African and Afropop music around the world.
Kojo Antwi said “I am also working on a book so watch out for that and many other exciting surprises to hit you soon. For now, though, I want to thank everyone who supported this tour, this is only the beginning…”.
Brand Africa Group, Berks Concepts, and Jagonzy TV, who were the main event sponsors and promoters, all expressed satisfaction with the tour as well.
They unanimously agreed that the legendary musician was greatly missed by his US fans and it was evidenced by how they came out in support of the tour.
“We were glad about the turnout in the other states too, including New York and Atlanta which were in August. The States of Massachusetts and Texas is where the show ended in September, respectively on the 1st and 2nd of September. We wish we had more time to hit more States but Mr. Antwi needed to return to Ghana to continue work on this upcoming album”, revealed Julien Asiedu, one of the promoters.
