As Star Music Trek enters its fourth week this weekend, thousands of music fans in the eastern part of Nigeria are eagerly awaiting the Enugu leg of the tour, billed to hold at The Nnamdi Azikiwe stadium, on Saturday June 29.
This weekend’s concert, which features a star-studded lineup including MI, J Martins, Wande Coal, Mr Raw, Phyno and Crystals will yet again deliver rich, electrifying performances from the headliners and supporting acts.
Phyno, whose near-excellent performance in Owerri on June 22 is still the talk of the town says he has a surprise in stock for Enugu fans ‘‘The ‘surprise’ is the surprise itself. I won't say anything more than that.”
Meanwhile rappers’ rapper M.I, who discovered a talented new rapper X BUSTA in Owerri says he’s ‘‘really excited about the Enugu leg of the concert’’.
The Chocolate City act has one question though: ‘‘Can Enugu rock more than Owerri?’’
M.I and Phyno are joined by another maestro – Wande Coal who shocked Owerri fans last weekend, with a half hour of non-stop hits from his rich repertoire. The Mavin records act will bring out his A game again, as he captures the heart of the east for the second weekend running.
Homeboys Mr. Raw and JMartins will treat fans to rich live music, backed by the bands their fans have come to love.
‘It’s a homecoming really’, says Raw, who had his NYSC in Owerri many years ago. ‘It’s like going back home to entertain my brothers and sisters, and I’m really enjoying this eastern invasion…’
The Enugu concert will run all night, with Gbenga Adeyinka as host.
The 10-city tour has so far visited FESTAC, Lokoja and Owerri, with six more cities to go.
