Among the artists are Terry Apala, Dremo, while DJs Cuppy, Consequence and E-Cool spun the place around.
Mayorkun hit the stage after performances from 15 opening acts. It was the highest number of artists I have seen take the stage for a headline concert of an artist of his calibre.
‘Eleko’ and ‘Sade’ were performed as one song, with the live band not switching anything.
Mr Eazi was a pleasant surprise act. He lifted spirits, and performed ‘Pour you water’, a single he’s pushing.
The energy hit a new level when ‘Che che’ came on. It is Mayorkun’s best work so far, and the crowd loved it. But nothing can be compared to Davido’s appearance on stage.
OBO caused a mini-stampede, as everyone inched closer to bask in the glory of Mayorkun’s proud music daddy.
“Remember a video on Twitter where I said I will make you a star,” Davido asked Mayorkun, before turning to the crowd. “Today what is he?”
“A SUPERSTAR!!!”, the crowd shouted.
Mayorkun also performed a tribute for late DJ Olu.
As he whipped out the mic to perform ‘Mama’, the entire ’30 Billion Gang’ got on stage. Kiddominant, who produced ‘Fall’ and ‘Mama’ was a backup singer, Davido became a hype man.
