… as residents troop out for night of fun

For lovers of real Igbo Highlife music in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, Legend Real Deal Experience that held last night at the Xmas carnival ground, Elekahia road, beside elekahia police post, Port Harcourt, is one that will not be forgotten in a long time.

On the much-anticipated night of fun and entertainment, headliners, The Obiligbo Brothers delivered a spectacular performance, as promised, and even raising the bar a notch higher.

The Obiligbo Brothers – Ifeanyi Okpuozor Obiligbo & Chukwuebuka Akunwafor Obiligbo – are sons of Obiligbo The Great of Anambra, and a force to reckon with in Igbo Highlife music across the East and South of Nigeria. Fans of the superstar Highlife duo were treated to a great performance as the brothers went above and beyond to ensure the audience was thrilled.

The ovation that greeted the appearance of the Obiligbo Brothers on stage was deafening and it got even louder as they began singing, starting out with the very popular ‘UDO GA DI’ and then proceeding with other hit songs the fans were all very familiar with as they engaged the artistes in an exciting sing along with acrobatic dances reminiscent of the good old days of the original Igbo Highlife era.

Popularly known for their energetic stage performances, the brothers left the crowd asking for more and all that were in attendance had wonderful things to say about the show.

Obiora Ngwu, a resident of Port Harcourt who attended the event couldn’t contain his excitement “I never expected to have this much fun. This show is the ‘real deal’ indeed. It just felt like this whole party shouldn’t end. You see the crowd didn’t even want the Obiligbo brothers to leave the stage. This is what every show should look like.”

Commenting on the success of the show, the Obiligbo brothers were full of praises for the organizers, “We had so much fun tonight. Port Harcourt feels like home for us. The show was great, the love here is real and this experience has made us connect better with our people and show appreciation to our fans. Tonight, everyone is happy and Legend Extra Stout made that happen. You guys are the Real Deal.”

The Obiligbo Brothers are very much loved here and the reception was superb. As a brand, we are proud and humbled at the same time to be able to create such wonderful experiences for our consumers.”
