Chike, of The Voice, brought his magic charm to the stage as he serenaded the audience with his tunes. While the G.P Network, lead by Popular Nigerian Guitarist Fiokee, showcased their unique style of guitar playing. And if the audience had to pick the man of the night, it will be Mavin Records’ Ladipoe who held the fans spellbound with back to back hits from his impressive repertoire.
Folabi Nuel, the Showgear Records leading man and composer of the Make Music Lagos theme, did not disappoint as he set the audience rocking to his soulful and inspirations songs. While Di’Ja, another Mavin Records flag bearer at the Lagos Shutdown, was out of this world with an electrifying performance that energised the crowd.
BEZ, a Make Music Lagos regular and passionate supporter, treated concert attendees to a heartfelt performance which comprised of some his hits like That Stupid Song and You Suppose Know.
