The weekend was bubbling with swagger as the two biggest names in the entertainment industry came together to give us a trip to remember. The power houses 2 Face and MI brought down the roof with the best performances ever. Organized by one of industry’s finest, Helen Abutu, who happens to be CEO of Buckwyld n’ Breathless, it was a concert to remember.
The show kicked off with performances from artists Trish, 10-10, Zora, JT, TG, Brenda (The Voice Nigeria), CKay, Ruby Gyang and Dice Ailes, Ace tunes, Mi2, Yung L and more. The night really took off when the Chairman himself, MI. He landed with hit after hit and got us in full nostalgic mode with remix performances of “Overkilling it” with Djinee, Ice prince and Jesse Jagz, “Oleku” with Ice Prince and then put the final nail in the coffin with his performance with Waje “One Naira.”
And then it was the turn of “The Baba” of entertainment, Tu Baba himself and as expected he delivered his songs with soulful performances that transposed us in a time. And time literally stood still when he invited the son of OJB, his friend and former producer and together they performed the deceased singer’s song “Searching” … it was such an emotional moment.
All in all, it was a wonderful, beautifully produced, excellently performed showcase and is definitely one that will go down in history as one of the best performances of both their careers.
