Event Details

BLAST FROM THE PAST’ from Oliver Twist Shack (in Laterbiokorshie, Accra) was coined to take you down a musical memory lane. Ghana is known as the first black African country south of the Sahara to have secured independence from colonial rule. Apart from cocoa and gold we are also renowned for our beats, percussions, melody and vocal prowess embedded in our rich music. It is time to clear 17th DECEMBER, 2022 on your calendar! 

Ever wondered which songs kept us dancing, tapping our feet and bopping our heads to rhythms in the 1990s and early 2000s? For some this evokes strong nostalgia and for others these are new songs that are thoroughly enjoyable. Either way ‘BLAST FROM THE PAST’ serves to be a memorable concert bringing back legendary songs that made high school entertainment and parties unforgettable. Music is at the centre of our culture and as young Ghanaians, it is our patriotic duty to be custodians who preserve it and Oliver Twist Shack has taken the initiative. Through our history, music has been a reserve which holds tales of our strife for freedom, life lessons and also celebrates our joyous and festive moments. We believe the evolution of our music is a key component of progress in the entertainment industry and by extension nightlife in Ghana. 

The exemplary musical trailblazers from the old order should not be forgotten. Despite the infiltration of Western music, we believe BLAST FROM THE PAST provides a platform for our powerful local music to live on. Numerous greats like Joe Frazier, Akatakyie, Tic Tac, Tinny, Ex-Doe, have previously graced the stage. This year promises to be more remarkable with celebrated musicians billed to perform from 7pm on the 17th. Grab your old school clothes and join us let’s make indelible memories. Let our artistes know that their lasting legacy continues to inspire the younger generation. This event is the go-to-festival for authentic Ghanaian music.
