It’s a common saying that Christmas is the reason for the season. But in Lagos, the season is Detty December, and we are here to party.
Livespot X Festival, the concert experience that brought us Cardi B aka Chioma B in 2019, is back, and this time they are coming with the first-ever six days concert experience in Nigeria. For music fans who are yet to decide whether to embrace this event, here are five compelling reasons to do so.
1. Safe venue
The venue is secured and equipped in compliance with Covid-19 protocols for large gatherings. There are designated spots for hand cleansing, and wearing facial masks is necessary to enter the venue. So don’t be safe about your health.
2. Tems’ first concert!
Tems shot into the international limelight with her collaborative track with Wizkid titled ‘Essence.’ The song got Tems her first Grammy nomination and Billboard Hot 100 entry, peaking at number 9. She will be headlining the first day of the week-long concert experience.
3. P-Square is back
The reunited twins, P-Square, are having a comeback on the festival’s third day since their split in 2015. The duo, who recently announced their reunion, are prepared to bring nostalgia back on stage.
Globally, the music industry has a history full of stories of reunion of disbanded music groups: Abba, Spice Girls, Outcast, Black Eyed Peas are some of the world’s leading pop groups that had stage reunions after being estranged for years. Even when the rock foreman, Freddie Mercury, left the Queen, he returned for the Live Aid Concert in 1985 for what would be remembered as their most famous performance of all time.
With P Square, music fans can only hope that Livespot X Festival would be a fresh beginning for the twins who parted ways at the peak of their career. That spirit of love is worth spreading at this yuletide period.
4. It’s Gen Z season
Livespot X Festival will showcase the best of the ‘it’ generation across its six days. Get ready for performances by Buju, Omah lay, Simi, Ckay, Ladipoe, Wurld, BlaqBonez, Jer, Lovn, ShowDemCamp, Lady Donli. Also, Spinall will turn up the energy with some ‘mad skillz’ on the sixth day of the festival.
5. Queen Tiwa and Machala headliner
Tiwa Savage will enliven music fans with her most famous song of the year from the Water and Garri album, ‘Somebody’s Son’. Wizkid is fresh off his sold-out three days 02 Arena performances.
The Chief Creative Director, Livespot360, Darey Art Alade, says this festival will be ground-breaking with regard to Covid-19 protocols.
