One of Ghana’s biggest promoters Nii Ofori Tackie, popularly known as Alordia, has shared his experience with legendary musician Castro who went missing some nine years ago.
In an interview with the host of Adwumapa mbre on Connect 97.1Fm, Alordia, hoping that Castro will return someday, revealed he had a strong relationship with Castro.
“We miss Castro. There’s no single day I don’t think of him. He’s a unique musician and always finds a way to penetrate. We leave everything to God, and I hope that one day Castro comes back from wherever he is. We miss him.”
Adding to that, Alordia disclosed he was the first to secure a visa for Castro to travel overseas, saying that their friendship was exceptional.
“Castro is family, we were very close, and I flew him to London 23 times to perform at my events. I was the first to fly him out of Ghana, and he’s the type who won’t even charge me to perform if I put him on the bill.”
Alordia promotion is set to organize its first concert for the year in London, Ghana Independence, slated for March 18, an annual event to celebrate Ghana’s independence. The second concert, Praise the Lord Concert, is set for London on May 28. He’s also set to roll out the Afrobeat festival and the UK’s edition of Ghana Music Awards.
Alordia Promotions has been a household name since the early 2000s, contributing immensely to the growth of Ghanaian music by supporting artists and putting Ghana on the map as far as entertainment is concerned.
