“Bring me back home!” Those were the exact words of the legendary American musician, George Benson. In his very short stay in Nigeria, legendary American musician, George Benson has felt so much at home that he officially requested to be invited back to the country.
The ten-time Grammy Award winner was in the country to headline the third edition of Smooth 98.1 FM’s Luxury Concert which held at the Eko Hotel and Suites on Saturday, Oct. 13.
The show also featured the masked one, Lagbaja, who was also making a belated return to a Nigerian stage. He used the opportunity to remind the Nigerian audience of the good old times when Lagos enjoyed his shows at the Motherlan’ in Opebi, Ikeja.
Lagbaja had earlier dispelled rumours of him removing his mask to a select cast of journalists. “I have not removed my mask; you can see that I’m still wearing it,” he said.
He also thanked the organisers for finding him worthy of performing alongside the American legend.
George Benson had the packed hall rocking to his vast collection of evergreen songs and before bringing the show to an end he requested to be brought back again. We hope someone takes him up on that offer.
