It was an event that was talked about for weeks. The nooks and crannies of Lagos and by extension, other adjoining states waited in anticipation of what was termed the biggest concert in recent time.
One cannot expect nothing less when the thought of a concert that would feature the duo of 2face Idibia and MI Abaga.
All of it and more makes no attempt to cover the entirety of the Buckwyld n Breathless: The Disruption Concert, held at the Eko Hotels Convention Centre, Victoria Island , Lagos, last week Saturday.
It was intriguing, exciting, and the energy emanating from the auditorium was special that in matter of hours, the convention centre was sold out.
The concert showcased the beauty of Africa with its variety of multi-talented entertainers from dancers to an amazing 20-piece band and an array of superstars.
Artistes like Ice Prince, Cohbams, Waje, Vector, Jesse Jagz, Djinee, Vanessa Mdee, Ruggedman, Nosa, Kelly Handsome, among others, were on stage performing hits to the excitement of the auditorium.
Despite the no-table arrangements, the auditorium was structured in a way that granted VIP guests privacy they required and still kept the regular ticket guests locked in on the excitement of the concert.
It certainly was a difficult task to choose who the better performer was between the show’s headliners; 2Baba and MI as both artistes allowed themselves to be absorbed in the performances, thus making themselves one with the stage.
MI’s lengthy performance on stage never got boring as song after song, he took the audience on a nostalgic journey through his career with songs from his debut album to the most recent singles.
2baba was ushered on the stage with a brief talk show by popular TV host, Emma Ugolee along with Osagie Alonge of the Pulse. NG and comedian, AY. The audience who had anticipated the iconic singer for so long burst into screams of excitement when he appeared on stage in the middle of an argument, It was amazing!
He serenaded the audience with many of his iconic songs like Ole , Nobody Talk About You, among others but the hallmark of the event was when he did a tribute song in the memory of singer and music producer, OJB Jezreel. He did the song alongside Nigerian rap veteran, Ruggedman who displayed his lyrical power on stage. Following the totally engaging performance, 2Baba welcomed on stage, OJB’s son to perform to the excitement of the audience.
