Fans of Alternative Soul singer, Bez are familiar with his super skills when it involves either an attempt to voice on a nicely orchestrated beat by Cobhams or the ooze of excitement when he mounts the podium for a stage performance. They can expect more intensity come Sunday, December 24, 2017, a day he has set aside to thrill them with great performances at the third edition of the Bez Live Concert set to hold at the Muri Okunola Park, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Some of the artistes anticipating a great outing on the day of the event include Aramide, Johnny Drille, Maka and Ric Hasanni. Bez who is fresh from the latter’s “Live & Wavy” concert appeared to be beaming with high energy as he spoke to Pulse News concerning the annual gig.
His intentions were clear from the moment he began a conversation about the imminent show – to thrill adherents of his music to an improved version of him. His albums “Super Sun” (2011) and “Gbagyi Child” (2016), are still getting a lot of buzz from the fans section. This is why the likelihood of a robust discharge of good music on the day of the rockfest is absolutely encouraged.
For the singer, promoting his most recent project which had rich contributions from the likes of Yemi Alade and the new sensation Simi, was quite an experience allowing for a new level of growth. He hopes to take the experiential journey down to the year 2018, which should see him drop a new album. Though his sight is set on a fresh beginning, he is however not ruling out releasing a video to ‘Just for Mary’, one of the exceptional tracks off the “Gbagyi Child” project.

As he prepares for a great start to the next year, Bez extended words of praise to pop artistes such as Wizkid, Davido and Tekno for their enviable exploits in the current year. Their performances which took these stars to a global stage of recognition is a motivation for other musicians to up the tempo in a bid to move with the wave. He noted that this will entail introducing more zeal and seriousness into their craft.
The ‘You suppose know’ songster is not ruling out a collaboration with some of these artistes as he aspires to improve on his sound. Citing King Sunny Ade as an example, he expressed the intention to make the type of music that will stay relevant even at an old age.
Feeling successful is a thing that will perhaps not come for him being the type of musician that is always aspiring to do better. He is often fixated on the idea of ensuring an outing, be it a stage performance or a musical project, better than a recent exploit. With the help of a ship load of a dedicated and talented team, this course has so far been an easy route to follow.
