It has not happened for a long time where you will see some of the best artistes Nigeria parades at a single event to honour a brand, but that was exactly what happened when Star lager beer paraded Tuface Idibia, D’banj, MI, Wizkid and Tiwa Savage at the Star re-launch party. The Expo Centre of Eko Hotel and Suites where the event held was filled to capacity with more than 6,000 consumers’ of Star.
The first performance of the evening was from MI. He thrilled the audience with hismhit songs, ‘African rapper’ and ‘Action film.’ that made them request for more. The second performance was from the rave of the moment music act, Wizkid who thrilled audience with songs like “Holla at your Boy”, “Love my baby,” ‘I
love my baby’ among other acts. Tiwa Salvage, a female act with MARVIN records was not left out
as she hit the stage with her Azonto dancing steps that got applauds of the audience.
She followed it with her popular hit track, ‘Kele kele love.’
The audience was ecstatic when Tuface came on stage with ‘Above and beyond’ which saw the award winning act mixing freely with the crowd. As the audience kept on asking for more, Tuface dished out two of his popular tracks, ‘Implication’ and ‘As you see me so.’ His act showed why he is a popular artiste.
Just when the audience thought they have seen it all and the curtain would soon fall, D’banj who made his first public appearance after his issue with his former partner, Don Jazzy. D’banj appeared from the midst of the crowd against the expectation of the audience who thought he’ll appear like others from the stage. For close to an hour he held the audience spelt bound with entertaining acts and songs that are ever green
from his collections. They include, ‘Oliver Twist’ and ‘Scape goat.’
