On Saturday, July 2, the Lugard Beach in Lokoja was filled to capacity as residents of the Confluence City trooped out in their numbers to experience a night of enjoyment and empowerment at the Goldberg Takeover Party. The unique party experience gave expression to traditional music redefined through modernity.
