It was an evening of quality music, dance and superlative entertainment as popular Nigerian act, Obiora Obiwon performed fresh tunes at the launch of his anticipated sophomore album, â€œThe Rebirthâ€.
The album soon revealed itself to be an eclectic mix of contemporary gospel and râ€™nâ€™b as earlier indicated by the artiste. In 2008, Obiwon made several references to a deep spiritual experience and the addition of gospel themes to his style.
Upbeat ballad and first single off the album â€œObi Mu Oâ€ also rose in 2009 to become one of yearâ€™s favourite hits.
Guest artistes, Alibaba and Yaw had the audience reeling in laughter with their comedic lines while Segun Obe, Rooftop MCs, Jahdiel, Eva, Kani, and Bracket of â€œYori Yoriâ€ fame also ensured it was a memorable musical night for the celebrities and fans in attendance.
Guests also went home with free copies of the album which finally hit stores in Nigeria, yesterday, Friday October 2, via Obaino Music Distribution.
A visibly excited Obiwon had this to say: â€œWeâ€™re elated having come thus far. We really took our time to do this (the album) and weâ€™re hoping the fans appreciate it for the excellence weâ€™ve strived to achieve. Weâ€™re now off to promote the album and do the videos.â€
