The Kaakit Up tour will be Kaakie’s debut performance tour. It will not only see her interacting, taking her music to and performing for her fans across the nation, but also creating awareness about maternal health and supporting maternal units of hospitals in cities she hopes to perform in.
Speaking at a conference on Thursday, Kaakie stated, “My first year has been very good- a lot of ups, some downs. But I am grateful to God and my fans for holding me down through it all. For me I think, it’s only natural that I take my music to my fans particularly outside Accra and together with my artiste friends show them love, appreciation and some gratitude for staying loyal to my music and act. So yes, I will urge everybody to come out let’s run things Inna their city.
“We have always been committed to providing quality entertainment experiences to event audiences. It is within this commitment that we therefore partnered with Xtra Large Music and Kaakie to embark on this tour to ensure people in and outside Accra not only get to interact with Kaakie but experience our quality events as well,” Business Development Manager of Rackus Productions, Gabriel Boateng added.
“It’s only natural that we tour these places and perform to our fans in the areas we chose, because day in day out we keep getting calls and requests to come and perform. Indeed we have performed at some of these places but interestingly our fans keep requesting for more shows, so yes we are going to give it all to them and in grand style. They should just watch out for Kaakie and Xtra large Music” – Xtra Large Music boss, Jam Master Jam further commented.
