It’s our Christmas gift to Nigerians’ – Banky W
The Countdown to the ''Baddest Concert'' as already begun, it's just 4 more days to the date. And that's the date some religious sect have already tagged the 'End of the World'. Fans and music lovers from what we can see, don't seem to be worried about the world ending at all. At least, there is NO visible sign that any from Nigeria are heading off to make sure to enter one of the Arks positioned around the world.
Empire Mate Entertainment's cash cow, the one and only Wizkid has promised all those who would come for the baddest concert, the most rollicking of time. Hear him. International pop star Wizkid says his teeming fans are in for the big thrill this Friday, as he performs in Lagos with his label mates.
The bestselling, MOBO-winning hit-maker who’s had a great year winning laurels and inking big deals, says he’s been rehearsing for weeks, to make sure he delivers an unforgettable set. The EME concert, tagged ‘The Baddest’, is produced by events company R28, and is the first in a set of big-budget international standard concerts to be promoted by R28 and EME.
‘Headlining this concert with my boss Banky W, and my colleagues Niyola, Shaydee, Skales, DJ Exclusive and others is truly a great way to end this fantastic year’, says Wizzy who had earlier in the year toured the UK and US with his crew. ‘And, trust me, we’re bringing a concert like never before’.
The Baddest Concert holds at The Grounds, Oceanview, in Victoria Island, Lagos, on Friday December 21.
Apart from Wizkid, Banky, Niyola, Skales and others, many Nigerian acts from different generations are also expected to hit the stage in what many have tagged the concert of the year.
According to a spokesperson for R28, The Baddest concert ‘will feature themed performances, big band sets, and all the electricity you’d expect to find in a truly international concert of this kind’. Meanwhile, Banky W, who’s one of Nigeria’s most celebrated singers and performers, has said the Christmas concert organized by his label Empire Mates Entertainment (EME) and respected events company R28, is a special Christmas gift to Nigerians from both organizations.
W, who will headline the concert with his EME colleagues Wizkid, Skales, Niyola, Shaydee and others, with support from friends from here and abroad, says The Baddest concert is ‘the kind of gift no money can buy’. ‘’We’re truly grateful to Nigerians for the support and I hope they’ll come out on Friday December 21, so we can have an opportunity to say thank you…’
