UGANDAN artiste, Big Tril's "Parte after Parte" song best describes the mood of patrons in the auditorium of the Fantasy Dome at the Trade Fair Centre in Accra at this year's Decemba2Rememba (D2R).
Right from when patrons arrived at the venue, it was obvious they were in for "serious business" as most of them sported sneakers to complement their jeans and white tops; the official dress code.
The evening's activities kicked off with Christmas songs performed by some new acts but it was Highly Spiritual act, Krymi who got the audience into the party mood with his energetic stagecraft when he sang songs from his collection including Dede, Dwe, Toffee and Small Thing remix.
His performance marked him as one to watch out for in future and it was not surprising that he got the audience to sing and dance throughout his time on stage.

The audience had a lot of fun
The party proper began with Lynx Entertainment act, KiDi, who got the crowd roaring for more of his top-notch performance.
It appeared his session was dedicated to the ladies who couldn't stop screaming his name as he took them on a great ride with pieces such as Sugar Daddy, Gyal Dem Sugar, Mr Bad man and Adiepena. His session was the beginning of the "Party after party" experience as he rocked with the live band.
Kofi Kinaata had a good night
Patrons were in for more fun when the Fadama boy, Kuami Eugene hit the stage with his latest song, Obiaato.
The Angela hitmaker was one of the best acts on the night and his stagecraft only confirmed his growth in the music game.
He knew just what song to drop to sustain the party mood and he was quick to drop popular songs such as Never Carry Last, Wish Me Well and now a crowd favourite Aku Sika.
And oh, was it an enlightening moment for patrons when celebrated rapper, Okyeame Kwame popularly known as Rap Dacta took patrons back to the days of Akyeame with songs including Aseda, Mesan Aba, Menko Me Da, Obaapa and 3ndaa Daa Me.
Okyeame Kwame received a lot of praise for his performance
From his energy, crowd interaction and stage antics, Okyeame Kwame proved why even after 20 years, he is still going strong in the game. For those in their 40s, it was a good time to pay respects to their one-time favourite rap icon as he earned long applause for his delivery.
The were equally great presentations from the man of the moment and Things Fall Apart hitmaker, Kofi Kinaata as well as music trio Praye.
The likes of Dope Nation, Adina and Kelvyn Boy were also on point and from the soaked white tops and streaming sweat on the faces of patrons who clearly wanted more even when the event had ended, one could not help but admire the organisers, Citi Fm/Citi TV for a job well done with organisation.
This year's Decemba2Rememba which also witnessed comedy skits from OB Amponsah and Mmebusem surely compensated for last year's show which didn't go too well for patrons.
