Lagos is no stranger to the nightlife and the December turn-ups. This month alone, over 10 of Nigeria’s biggest entertainers have either hosted a concert or is gearing up to host one.
This customary December vibe has seen many fun-loving Nigerians have to decide on which show to attend and which ones to miss. A very tough decision but a very necessary one (we cannot come and enter debt because of December turn-up.lol).
However, if you were at the BAFEST, then you pretty much experienced all the slated concerts by all our artists in one night. Yes, the concert was that LiT!
The line up was already looking all kinds of lit with the likes of Kizz Daniel, Olamide, Tiwa Savage, Flavour, Awilo Longomba, Falz, and Burna Boy.
The event organizers took it a step further with Tiger beer adding some spice to the event with its Tiger corner.
The corner featured a graffiti wall, as well as a car covered in very colorful graffiti. The beer brand pulled no stops in providing the ambiance to match its very ambitious brand narrative.
Beyond the stellar performances, the concert also featured an awe-inspiring aerodynamics show, with various drummers and dancers performing, while suspended in the air.
The real excitement, however, came when each artiste hit the stage. As they all brought their A-game to the fore. From Yemi Alade, to Kizz Daniel to Tiwa, to D’banj. Every artiste sought to give fans a great time and they certainly delivered.
It was non stop excitement, nonstop turn-up.
With hype men Do2dtun, Shoddy and DJ Crowd Kontroller on deck to rev up the crowd, there was never a dull moment.
This concert was also a fun link-up for a lot of the millennials (particularly the 90s kids) who could not hide their excitement at being thrilled to modern hits as well classic tunes which got the whole crowd nostalgic.
With so many young teeming adults in attendance, it was no surprise that Tiger beer was the official beer brand of the event. The beer brand is quickly becoming one of the coolest brands in the Nigerian beer scene and the younger demographic seem to be loving it.
The Tiger corner was where the cool kids went to get their buzz, as well as photos for the gram, as the graffiti wall and car, by the very talented Osa Seven, provided the perfect backdrop.
This concert delivered on all fronts and with a remarkable closing performance by Burna Boy which got everyone buzzing, BAFEST etched its name in history as one of the greatest concerts in recent memory.
For all of us who were at the concert, I guess Christmas came early.
