Nikki, Koffi and Kel
It was a beautiful festival of live music at the second edition of ONE MIC NAIJA, which held on Sunday, June 26 at Browne’s Café, Ikeja GRA, Lagos. Young upcoming artistes grabbed the opportunity presented them on a live stage with both hands and delivered some very remarkable performances with a live band.
Of the performers on the night, gospel crooner, Nikki Laoye, was the most senior and she delivered smoothly numbers from her first album, ANGEL FOR LIFE. Her performance which was to have come later in the evening was brought forward to allow her leave for the launch of Pastor Paul Adefarasin and the Chosen Treasure’s album launch holding on the island. Yemi Alade and Suzzy followed beautifully in the singing genre, both raising masculine temperatures in the building with some ‘smoochy’ moves. Slim T, Efa, Five Mics and Base One, who delivered on Nikki’s song, did the rap duties. Comedian, Koffi, also dropped some well received comic lines while rapper, Kel and former Tribesman, KB hosted.
The show was launched in April to provide a platform for upcoming music acts to showcase their skills with a live band on a stage. Last month’s edition had performances by Pope, 19th Street, Clay and many others. The June edition was supported by hair care giants, SOULMATE, who provided gift packs for every attendee. Next edition comes up in August.
