Telecoms firm, Globacom, over the weekend, treated residents of the hilly city of Ibadan to an evening of fun, music and dancing as the company brought its famed Nationwide Mega Music concert to the city.
The show which dovetailed into the country’s 57th Independence anniversary featured Olamide Adedeji, R & B new discovery, Axterix; Yemi Eberechi Alade, alias Yemi Alade; Douglas Jack Agu, a.k.a. Runtown, and Timaya, the Egberi Papa of Bayelsa.
The concert proved to be a celebration of stagecraft and talent as the artistes on parade gave the crowd that gathered at the Jogor Event Centre, venue of the show, a night to remember.
Axterix opened the stage with a superlative performance which was followed by a most energetic show by vocalist cum performer, Yemi Eberechi Alade, and her dancers.
While the crowd was still swooning on the display of Yemi Alade, another music sensation, the dance hall master, Runtown, took the show to another realm. The Activity Pikin crooner sent the audience singing and dancing to his Superwoman and other hit tracks.
The Shakiti Bobo exponent, Olamide, was something else. This King of the Streets did wonders with the mic and with his feet such that the crowd could not stay on their seats.
The Egberi Papa 1 of Bayelsa, Inetimi Alfred Odon (Timaya), crowned the concert fun as he took the stage with a collabo with Olamide before moving to his hit tracks and adding some spiritual flavour to the evening.
The show was attended by VIPs including Nollywood star, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Yoruba movie actors, Odunlade Adekola and Bolaji Amusan, also known as Mr. Latin. DJ Tops was the disc jockey .
The next stop for the Glo Mega Music Nationwide Tour is Anyigba, Kogi State, on October 7.
