The normally quiet city of Suleja, Niger State, came alive last weekend as telecom giant, Globacom, held its Mega Music Nationwide Tour there.
The show, which was held at the Tommy Hill Station Hotels, Suleja, drew a large crowd of fun lovers comprising residents of the city and surrounding communities who came to savour the event.
Their hunger for adventure was assuaged as they were treated to a memorable night of fun and entertainment by six of the country’s best musicians who delivered superlative performances that kept them dancing all through the event.
The music superstars who performed included Olamide Adedeji, Olamide Baddo; Chinedu Okoli, Flavour; Chibuike Nelson Azubuike, Phyno; Omawumi Megbele, Douglas Agu, Runtown and Hadiza Blell, Di’ja.
From one hit track to another, the artistes gave very good accounts of themselves to the delight of members of the audience who were on their feet dancing to the songs. Marvin Records singer and Glo brand ambassador, Di’ja opened the show with songs from her new album, One Talk.
She followed this with her other hit tracks such as Aww, How can we be friends, Adaobi, Take Kiss and Air.
Dancehall star, Runtown, took over from Di’ja and raised the tempo of the evening higher with his Kolabo, Fijogbowo, Bend Down Pause, Superwoman and Suddenly hit tracks. Next to mount the stage was Omawumi who, as usual, performed with her gaily dressed band members.
The Who I Go Ask crooner further enlivened the hall with her characteristic energetic delivery to the cheering of the audience. Her Bottom Belle track was the highlight of her performance for the night.
Before the loud cheer could die down, Flavour came on stage. The modern highlife king took the show to the next level with his tracks which gave the audience value for their time.
Next in line was Phyno. The So far so good rapper showed why he is one of the most popular acts on Nigeria’s music scene as he treated the crowd to Financial Woman, E Chop My Money, I don suffer tracks, ending with Fada fada.
While Phyno was on the last lines of the Fada fada track, Olamide joined him on stage for a collabo. They embraced and Phyno yielded the stage to Olamide, who was in his best element.
He gave the crowd something to remember for a long time to come with his Pepper them gang, Sakiti bobo, Kodurosoke, Konkobilit, Reggae Blues, Don’t stop, Alowo majaye, Ori Iya mi and Dongoyaro tracks.
Part of the fun was provided by the delectable pair who anchored the show: Mercy Johnson-Okojie and Uche Jombo. They were complemented by Nollywood legend Kanayo O. Kanayo (KOK) who made a celebrity guest appearance.
For a better society.
