#MusicDistrict by Delphino Entertainment Kicks off in Abuja - Praiz , Tiwa Savage and Davido make an appearance.

DelphinoEnt

Entertainment returned to Abuja this week courtesy of Delphino  Entertainment with the maiden edition of  Music District.

After weeks of instability and reduced entertainment in the city, the show was a welcome relief & we were there to witness the whole thing.

Hosted at the Shehu Musa Yar Adua center on  Sunday the 26th Feb  the line up featured artist like Praiz, Tiwa Savage and Davido.

For a Sunday event, the turnout was moderate but there was a lot of enthusiasm for the evening.

The venue was nicely laid out there was ample security and  the availability of food / refreshments for those interested. 

 

The Live band started and then there was an intro performance from Praiz one of the featured artist.

The performance was good but somebody forgot to sort out the acoustics, with the layout of the chosen venue you could  just hear screeching sounds and echo's  bouncing of the walls in  a sometimes toture to the ears kind of way.

Praiz managed to move the crowd despite this hicup and things eventually began to improve.

White Nigerian made a suprise appearance also  and rocked the crowed with some lyrics and interesting dance routines.

  Loveme2               MarcoNTiwa

The Magic moment for us, was the arrival of Tiwa Savage on stage, we heard many things in the past but having to hear her live was truly amazing.

Her powerful voice made up for issues with the acoustics , She captivated the crowd with her various songs and immediately turned the experience around for us all.

PhilNTiwa2


Talking to her was even more amazing, a true professional with loads of experience on the music circuit we should keep an eye on her and Abuja, please invite her for your events, highly recommended and Classy with a capital K.

OmoBabaOlowo2

By the time Omobabaolowo hit the stage, You knew this was one of Nigeria's youngest and fast growing Super stars. Davido hit the stage and you could see the surge as people (Mostly the ladies) stormed the stage area.

He gave a very exciting performance, we heard the popular  damiduro song  , the next thing we were popping the rozay and he was singing from Sunday to Monday, then Boom he was gone !

 

Big thanks to Onoja of Delphino entertainment for organising the event , and this is hoping you recovered from the muscle you pulled towards the end , congrats and keep up the ...
