Everyone will agree that Bukola Folayan a.k.a. Bouqui is a queen as far as Nigeria’s gospel music is concerned.


It’s a talent that has taken her places and won her awards locally and internationally. It is a blessing she plans to make others enjoy too as recently, she disclosed that she will be launching an open mic show that seeks to discover new talents.

According to Bouqui “the concept of the contest is for the people to express their talent andart in a calm and relaxing atmosphere.

We discovered there are fewer opportunities for Christian artistes to express themselves and we want to provide a platform such as this” Bouqui says that participating artistes are expected to be “creative, have strong lyrics, must be earnest in their expression and be ready to alter acceptable norms.”

“I’m really excited about this. We planned D’Attic as an opportunity to have freestyle battles, poetry and spoken word all in a relaxed atmosphere. We are positive everyone who attends this event will enjoy it.”D’Attic which made its yesterday Friday, the 29th, holds every last Friday of the month.
