Lights! Camera! One Mic! #OneMicNaija is baaaack!
Weeks after holding a much talked about edition in August, the haven for music lovers, promoters and the like is back again. This time with an edition that looks set to rock the mainland to its' core!
Set to light up the One Mic Naija stage on October 28th are dance-hall stars, Solid Star and General Pype, new comers, Dammy Krane and Big Mo, rapper Loose Kaynon, new E.M.E signing Niyola and folk singer, Oyinkansola.
Solidstar is a hip-hop, dance-hall artiste from Delta State who achieved national fame with his hit single ''One in a Million'' featuring 2face Idibia. His other songs like 'Omotena' have kept him in the limelight and he recently released 'Skibo' which is currently a favourite on radio and blogs!
Big Mo is a songwriter, artiste video director and stylist! Big Mo who recently released a single featuring Maytronomy "Wahlaitalai" is young, fresh and talented!
Also on the line up is Oyinkansola whose distinctive voice is a delight to listen to live. Oyinkansola began singing in the choir as a child, and grew up listening to indigenous greats
which is reflected in her style and sound. 'Cry', 'Hands up' and 'LoveWantintin' featuring Brymo and 'Kokose' are some of her singles out at the moment.
Dammy Krane is known for his melodic voice, engaging lyrics and exciting genre of music. Dammy Krane has been featured on songs by Flowsickk, Efa, Dj Klem, Rilwan and 2face. His video for his hit single, 'My Dear', is now out!
Who let the Kaynon Loose?
Loose Kaynon is a rap phenomenon who epitomises the true essence of the Nigerian mentality, which is “success against all odds”. Currently signed to M.I's Loopy Records label, he is set to perform some new songs at One Mic Naija!
Bringing some r n b to the mix is Niyola who was recently signed to E.M.E. With a self-titled album previously released, Niyola is working on new material, including the single 'Don't Go There' which is on the E.M.E Album. It would be refreshing to see Niyola pop on a stage
Rounding off the list of performers is General Pype.
The 7 Star General as he is fondly called took the music scene by storm with features and hits like 'Champion'. Then he went quiet and is now back with two massive singles, including 'Give it to Me'.
With a line up rivalling many big concerts, it's amazing that the tickets for #OneMicNaija are still N1000.
