From Davido and Wizkid to D’Banj and the Mo’Hit Crew, it is no doubt a season of reconciliation in the Nigerian music industry.
Davido had earlier announced that he would be offering a very ‘mad and loud’ surprise at his concert, which held at the Eko Convention center, Lagos, and he indeed kept to his words.
Davido, whose concert made trends on Twitter, said it took him two whole months of effort to bring the moment into fruition.
The Mo’Hit stars sent the crowd into frenzy as they performed some of their hit songs including ‘Pere’. Dbanj also performed the band’s hit track, ‘Suddenly’ among many others.
Nigerians who attended the sold-out concert as well as the over 50,000 fans who kept a close tab on the concert via Snapchat, Instagram live and Twitter, could not contain their excitement.
The Mo’Hits crew which comprises of Don Jazzy; The Entertainer, D’Banj; Vocal Powerhouse, Wande Coal as well as Dr. Sid, K-Switch, Ikechukwu and D’Prince, went on a painful split in 2012 over several internal disagreements.
Don jazzy also posted a video of himself along his ex-band members, D’banj, Dr. Sid, and Ikechukwu singing joyfully in an elevator.
It is the first time Don Jazzy and D’banj would upload a video of themselves together on Instagram since their bitter split five years ago.
Other happenings at the event includes straight up performances from a long string of performers including Teni, Ellyman, Dapo Tuburna, Fefe, Prettyboi D-O, DNA Ryan, Attitude, Nonso Amadi, Sexy Steel, Wale Turner, Terry Apala, Iceberg Slim, TJan, Skuki, B-Red, Sina Rambo, Solidstar, Dice Ailes and Idowest, Runtown & Nasty C.
Davido would later come on stage, backed by his hypeman, King Spesh and actress Eniola Badmus. The singer performed songs from his début album “O.B.O,” before taking breaks in-between. He would later bring on a list of A-list acts and members of his DMW crew.
They include Dremo, Mayorkun, Runtown, Nasty C, Niniola, Terry G, Daddy Showkey, Humblesmith, Reekado Banks, Falz, Olamide, Lil Kesh, Ice Prince, Patoranking, CDQ, and Wande Coal.
Davido’s new found bromance with Wizkid continued at his last ’30 Billion’ concert. The singer brought Wizkid onstage at his concert. After Wizkid reconciled with Davido publicly on stage at his headline concert Davido reciprocated with another reunion onstage. The singer called Wizkid “My new best friend,” before they went on to do Starboy’s latest hit record ‘Manya.’
Wizkid would later lead the crowd in the chant “say OBO, say Starboy…”
From Wizkid and Davido shocking fans with a surprise performance at Wizkid’s concert to Mo’Hits reunion at Davido’s concert, 2017 has become an important year in Nigerian music that will not be forgotten in a hurry.
