African Queen Crooner and Hypertek Honcho, 2face Idibia and former Mohits Records’ leading star and now GOOD Music artiste, Dbanj will on Friday, November 30, 2012 at the exquisite Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, lead other Nigerian acts like Femi Kuti, Flavour and Sir Shina Peters to perform at this year’s TOP10MICS concert.
The TOP10MICS concert which is in its sophomore year is being organised by entertainment powerhouse, Koga Studios. The concert will have ace humorist Bright Okpocha alias BasketMouth as its host on the night. The presenter of the popular TV show, Big Friday, will reel out rib cracking jokes to fans.
The concert’s maiden edition held last year at the expansive Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS) but is now returning to the upscale Eko Hotels and Suites this year. Top music acts headlined last year’s concert, the likes of 2face, MI, P Square, Femi Kuti, Mocheddah, Obesere, Duncan Mighty, Wizkid,
For award-winning and multi-platinum selling singer, 2face Idibia, he is one of the selected few who have proven to all and sundry that talent and right positioning are keys to recording enduring successes in the music business as he has over time created a unique niche and reputation for himself. The former Plantashun Boiz member was the first Nigerian to sell his music CD for N1, 000 amidst other notable accomplishments.
The Koko Master made his incursion into the Nigerian music industry with his hit song ‘Tongolo’ from his ‘No Long Thing’ album in 2005 and has after that churned out hit after hit in this illustrious career which has seen him cart away many music awards both at home and abroad.
Afrobeat sensation, Femi Kuti showed class and dexterity when he recently featured on the track of Nigerian Idol host, Ill rhymes titled ‘Teacher’. It was the first time the afrobeat maestro would collaborate with a rapper and it turned out to be another hit. Ladies’ favourite, Flavour has endeared him to the ladies with his waist twisting dance style; his hit track ‘Onyi Na Tumo’ is enjoying massive reviews and rotation.
For legendary Afro Juju exponent, Sir Shina Peters a.k.a Shinamania, fans can’t just get enough of this maestro as his songs are still in high demand in the industry. The man who shot into lime light in the late 80’s is still a toast of many as he enjoys a massive patronage for high end shows.
Speaking on the artistes that would headline this year’s concert, Anu Awoseyi of Koga said ‘’the choice of 2face Idibia, Dbanj, Flavour, Femi Kuti and Sir Shina Peters cannot be faulted as these gentlemen are very successful in their genres of music, picking them was a stroll in the park’’.
