It’s been over a month, but the memories of the #30BillionConcert sponsored by First Bank will not be going away anytime soon.
It’s probably the first time in a really long time we’ve seen so many celebrities and superstars turn up for one of their own and perform.
While so many amazing performers came through, these are the people that made the night memorable:
While Falz The Bahd Guy might have a thing for “Something Light”, he came heavy at this show. It’s incredible how his craft has grown better and better by the year, making him one of the most sought-after people in show business.
Baado! Olamide has a claim to the Lagos Pop Culture throne, and it is valid. Because when he gets into the booth or climbs a stage, everyone goes crazy. Look, when Olamide said “Wo”, NEPA brought light in all the people; the electricity was incredible.
3. Daddy Showkey
Daddy Showkey might be old, but he still has the sauce. That’s pretty much what makes him a legend. It doesn’t matter what he’s singing, as long as he’s on stage, we take the nostalgic journey with him.
2Face has always been a show stunner, and he brought on stage with him, the man who inspired his biggest song of 2017, the Gaaga Shuffle. Every time we see 2 Face on stage is a reminder that he still holds a special place in our hearts.
It took 2 months to convince them and make this happen, but the entire Mo’Hits showed up on stage and it was like watching the 2000’s replay itself in a few minutes. Every member of the defunct group showed up and blessed the fans with hit songs like ‘Pere’, ‘Booty call’, ‘Give it to me’, ‘Pop something’ and ‘Suddenly’.
What’s better than one shocker? Two. Wizkid, a long-term rival of the night’s star, showed up on stage, and side by side with Davido, gave everyone a memorable night.
We had to save The Baddest for last. Is there a better way for his 2017 to climax, after hits like ‘Fall’, ‘If’, and ‘FIA’ than to have a show that people will be remembering for a long time? A show where old fires were re-ignited? And old rivalries turned to a sport?
2018 looks like it’ll be greater. Here’s to greater alliances and fruitful partnerships.
