Residents of the beautiful city of Port Harcourt were yesterday treated to an unforgettable night of music and funfair by the superstar duo of Duncan Mighty and Mr Songs himself, Harrysong.
It was a beautiful homecoming for the A-list artistes who also didn’t disappoint their fans who had come to see them perform.
The Star Ground, Elekahia, Port Harcourt, venue for the Port Harcourt Real Deal Experience had filled up hours before the event even started as fans and Legend Extra Stout consumers gathered in anticipation to see their favorite stars. As expected, the crowd erupted in an excited and deafening roar when they finally saw the superstars emerge.
Duncan Mighty, the proud Port Harcourt boy as he calls himself was the first to mount the stage. The “Port Harcourt Son” crooner known for his original and much localized tunes and lyrics mesmerized the raving audience performing some of his biggest hits like “Port Harcourt Son,” “Obianuju,” “Dance for me,” and “Ako Na Uche” among others. The connection between him and the fans was visibly real and authentic as they echoed back the lyrics of the songs in excitement.
Overwhelmed by the show of love from the fans, a teary Duncan said,” I feel special, I feel loved. This has been more than just a show for me and I want to thank my amazing fans for their support.
They’ve always stood by me like a family. I also appreciate Legend for putting this together…honestly you (Legend) might not realize how far this kind of initiative goes, but trust me, this is very commendable.”
Duncan’s remarkable performance was enough for the fans to end the night on a high, but Mr Songz took the fun to another level. Noted to have churned out some of Nigeria’s biggest hits,
Harrysong led the raving audience in an unending sing-along. From “Beta Pikin” to “Baba for the Girls,” and “Samankwe,” to “Ofeshe”, the former 5 Star music strongman delivered a breath-taking performance that will be long talked about in the city of Port Harcourt.
Asked about the night’s performance, he said “Did you see the crowd out there? Well you can’t give anything less as an artiste. With that number, that show of love and support for your craft, man you have to deliver and I’m glad they loved it. We all had crazy fun. Big ups to the fans and to Legend Extra Stout,” he added excitedly.
In addition to the musical performances, winners of the online talent competition went home N50,000 richer, while several other fans and consumers won other exciting prizes like flat screen TVs, generators, refrigerators and other high-end gift items in the Taste, Tell, and Win game. Guests also got the unique opportunity to experience the different elements of Legend Extra stout in a live simulation room.
