The first edition of the Joy FM’s Open Mic in 2017 was an unforgettable night of music, comedy, spoken word and unlimited latent.
On the night, there were the amateurs, the professionals, raw talents, and everything in between taking turns to thrill patrons at the +233 Jazz Bar and Grill.
Some of the well-known personalities who thrilled patrons at the maiden edition on June 24, 2017, included M.anifest, KSM, Knii Lante, Chief Moomen, DJ Black Yom Nfojoh and Solo 7.
