For those who attended the just concluded week long Felabration concert which ended last night, there was a general agreement that it was one of the most successful shows in the Nigerian entertainment scene this year.
The week long event had started on the 9th and ended on the 15th of October- Fela’s birthday. He would have been 79.
As expected, there was a palpable stampede as Wizkid stepped into the premises of the New Afrika Shrine at Ikeja Lagos. Last night, the revered afro-pop singer made his first appearance at a Nigerian concert this year. It was obvious Wizkid was happy to perform in Nigeria after a long while. The crooner rendered songs like Sweet Love, Jaiye Jaiye, Ojuelegba among others.
Fuji maestro, Adewale Ayuba changed the rhythm of the event with his melodious Fuji songs.. His dance steps blending with the percussion serenaded the audience.
The show didn’t end without the masked one ,Lagbaja mounting the stage. Lagbaja was clad in a black tee shirt with a picture of Fela engraved on it. All in all, it was a night of glamour, music and massive fun.
