2018 edition Ghana Meets Naija which is dubbed the ‘Rescue Mission’, was held at the Fantasy Dome of the Ghana International Trade Fair Centre. This however ends the long time rift between Nigeria superstar, Wizkid and his Ghanian counterpart, Shata Wale.
Not long ago, Shatta Wale stated without equivocation that the Nigerian is overrated and does not deserve a superstar status.

Midway through his performance, Wizkid paused and invited Shatta Wale on to the stage even though the latter was not billed to perform on the night.
